Special Issue "Hydroinformatics and Urban Water Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2016).

Interests: urban water systems; hydroinformatics; flood resilience and adaptation; optimal rehabilitation of drainage networks
Hydroinformatics integrates knowledge from social and technical domains to help understand how technical interventions have social consequences and how these in turn generate new technical developments. The application of hydroinformatics to urban water systems (also known as urban hydroinformatics) has emerged as an important concept following a growing need to manage urban water systems in a holistic manner by attending to those social and technical processes that cannot be separated from each other. The topics consist of, but are not limited to, the modelling of institutional behaviour, stakeholder participation through serious gaming and collaborative modelling, quantitative and qualitative flood risk assessment, numerical modelling of water processes, system performance evaluation, leakage control in water distribution networks, optimal rehabilitation of sewerage networks, real-time control, analysis of treatment works operation, and minimising the impact of sewerage overflows on receiving waters. Social science perspectives, such as economics, environmental and social justice, psychology and behavioural science, institutional and policy analysis are integral to urban hydroinformatics, and therefore interdisciplinary and even trans-disciplinary analyses to urban water problems are within scope. The journal, Water, is inviting manuscripts for a Special Issue addressing Hydroinformatics and Urban Water Systems.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
