Like other sectors, ours is embracing new technologies at a fast pace ranging from real-time data-analytics, low-cost sensors, machine learning, artificial intelligence, automation, intelligent real-time control, mobile applications and cloud computing.

This conference is targeted at both experienced urban drainage professionals looking to 'upskill' in digital technologies and data scientists and other technologists looking to learn more about the unique challenges and opportunities in the urban drainage operations and management sector.

Conference delegates will deepen their understanding of how digital technologies are already assisting water & sewerage companies and other agencies to plan and operate assets more effectively to combat the effects of climate change, growth and ageing assets whilst meeting exacting performance standards for flooding, pollution and compliance. The conference will combine conventional podium presentations with panel discussions from experts.
