Welcome to DSD-Kampala 2023

We are happy to announce Deltares Software Days – Kampala. These events have been a long-running feature of our outreach work and the Software Days in Kampala, will be our first in the Africa region.

Join us from Wednesday 4 to Friday 6 October 2023 in Kampala where we will bring together water practitioners, modellers and researchers to explore open source hydrological simulation software for urban flood modelling with Delft3D FM Suite, flood impact using Delft-FIAT, catchment hydrological modelling with Wflow, as well as leveraging global earth observation data with GoogleEarthEngine.


Registration is now open !

Attendance at the event is free of charge (registration mandatory) and places are limited, so please only register if you can definitely attend. To register, please go on the Program page and join each event you wish to attend.


Focus of the event

The event will focus on exchange of experiences, knowledge, development, and good practices in water related modelling in the East Africa region.
The event aims to attract water professionals, scientists, lecturers and researchers from a broad spectrum of organisations working in the water sector in Uganda and elsewhere in East Africa.


Seminar, workshops and short courses

The program consists of a 1-day seminar on “Models and decision-making in the wake of climate uncertainties” and two days of workshops / training sessions using Deltares open-source software. Four courses are offered. With each course being repeated on the second day so that participants get two chances to follow the courses they want.
