Special Issue in Water: Urban Rainfall Analysis and Flood Management
Interests: urban water systems; sensor network design; urban water quality; optimization techniques; advanced numerical modelling; water and energy balance in water services; life cost assessment to CFP evaluation in water service
Innovation in information and communication technologies has produced a large impact in the production of goods and in service provision. Urban water research and practice received a boost thanks to the availability of new and advanced numerical models, the increase of computing resources (especially distributed in clouds), and the availability of cheap and reliable sensors that can be deployed through the system to trace its evolution. This Special Issue welcomes research papers dealing with new technologies and models to monitor and manage urban water distribution networks and drainage systems. Papers about new monitoring strategies and technologies both including water quantity and quality aspects are also welcome, as well as scientific reports regarding the application of optimization techniques to improve system management, report leakages, investigate water quality, and reduce energy consumption. Well-documented and internationally relevant case studies and practical field test reports could be a valuable addition to this Special Issue that aims to catch the interest of researchers in the water and IT sector as well as of water managers and practitioners.

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 monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
