4th International Conference

221st Session of Scientific and Technical Committee of SHF

14-16 June 2017

Ecole Polytechnique - Sophia Antipolis

1645 Route des Lucioles  06410 BIOT   Bus stop: INRIA

How to access :


You have all the accommodations available in Sophia Antipolis on our website: Most of them are at a walking distance from the campus. Otherwise, if you prefer, you can book a hotel in Nice and take the shuttle bus which is reaching Nice in 30 min for 1,5 € ... This is the most convenient system and highly used by our students who are mostly based in Nice. Time table is there:

SIMHYDRO 2017 : choosing the right model in applied hydraulics

Decision-making processes and uncertainies handling. Purposes for modelling. How to choose the right model for coupled problems? Which are the industrial and societal issues associated? Which uncertainties?


Day 1 : Free surface flows, coupled problems and hydro-environmental issues

Day 2 : Real-time modelling of hydraulic networks and structures and Urban flood modelling

Day 3 :  3D flow modelling and two-phase flows in hydraulic machines and industrial hydraulics.


1. Hydro-environmental issues. Modelling in eco-hydraulics
2. Uncertainties and data assimilation
3. Scale models in hydraulics and their place and complementarity in simulation concepts
4. Flow instabilities in hydraulics : how to deal with?
5. Real time modelling of Hydraulic structures and networks and events
6. Lessons learned from 2015 flash floods in the French Riviera (Côte d'Azur) area and other similar areas
7. Modelling tools for urban floods (pluvial, fluvial, and marine submersions)
8. 3D two-phase flows (experiments and modelling)
9. Hydraulic machineries

The Organising & Scientific Committees will take particular care in the process of peer reviewing of the manuscripts and selected papers;

 New : CSCE sponsors Simhyro 2017

The modern CSCE is founded on 125 proud years of civil engineering history in this country. Information on the projects and individuals who exemplify this tradition can be found at the following links:

The future of CSCE and of the profession of civil engineering in Canada depends on two things:
