International Hydraulics Conferences in Ottawa, Canada
The 3rd International Symposium on Outfall Systems (ISOS) and the 6th International Conference on the Application of Physical Modelling in Coastal and Port Engineering and Science (Coastlab) were jointly held at the University of Ottawa in Canada from 11-13 May, 2016. These bi-annual conferences respectively drew 95 and 115 delegates, including academics and applied researchers from more than 30 countries around the world.
WRL was represented at ISOS by Principal Engineer Brett Miller and at Coastlab by Senior Engineer Ian Coghlan. They were just 2 of 3 Australians participating in these cutting edge forums on marine outfalls and coastal physical modelling.
The conferences included a field trip to the Canadian National Research Centre’s hydraulics laboratories in Ottawa with whom WRL has maintained professional links for more than 20 years.
