2014 MIKE by DHI UK Symposium
Date: 13th to 14th May 2014
Venue: Coombe Abbey Hotel, Warwickshire, UK
Cost: Free event (excepting accommodation costs - see below)
Registration: http://www.mikebydhi.com/GlobalEvents/UKUGM2014.aspx

You are cordially invited to the MIKE by DHI UK Symposium, a free-of-charge knowledge sharing event for water and environmental professionals comprising both conference-style presentations and workshop-style training sessions.

Now in its 16th year, and to be held on 13th to 14th May at the spectacular Coombe Abbey in Warwickshire, this popular event attracts participants from across industry and academia. The format of the event allows exchange of experiences through formal presentations in our User Group Meeting plus informal interaction with both UK and Head Office DHI staff.

On the 13th May 2014 we look forward to a selection of presentations by both DHI staff and UK users that will introduce new features and reveal the wide range of applications of the MIKE by DHI software. Presentations confirmed to date include: -
  • From hazard to impact: The CORFU flood damage assessment tools
  • Using a calibrated tidal model to assess Bathing Water Directive compliance in Ramsey Bay
  • Using MIKE 21 for the estimation of typhoon risk in Japan
  • Riverine water quality modelling, with a focus on nutrients, using MIKE 11 ECO Lab
  • Modelling extreme water levels in the Swan and Canning Rivers, Perth, Western Australia
We would encourage all attendees to stay for the gala dinner in the evening of 13th May 2014, as this is a relaxed and informal opportunity to share experiences and talk through problems, debate frustrations and feature requests, and (most importantly!) include us in your discussions.

On the following day, 14th May 2014, we are planning a series of topical seminar-style training sessions, technology presentations and informal open discussions. For example, in the Marine training session, we hope to present a step-by-step methodology for deriving wave overtopping volumes over embankments using a 1D Boussinesq Wave (MIKE 21 BW) approach. This can be used with the enhanced MIKE 21 FMHD dike structures available in Release 2014 to investigate inland flooding (this session will be followed by an informal discussion on the direction of this development).

2014 is a special year for DHI and, during the User Group Meeting, we hope you will help us to celebrate our 50th Anniversary!

DHI is the expert in water environments. Our globally renowned MIKE by DHI software (named after Michael Abbott - the father of Hydroinformatics) transforms cutting-edge science into practice and truly models the world of water. So whether you need to save water, share it fairly, improve its quality, quantify its impact or manage its flow, we can help.

On the 25th of February, half a century ago, DHI was established as The Hydraulic Engineering Institute – an offshoot of the Technical University of Denmark. Initially, the conceptual basis was to combine calculations of underwater currents with large model tests, so that the impact of waves and currents in harbours and on coasts could be explored. The first tasks included the establishment and expansion of several ports on the west coast of Jutland, Denmark.

At a time when physical models were perceived to be the only option, DHI was one of the inventors of computational hydraulics. The roots of DHI's commercial software can be traced back to 1970 - starting with System 11 and System 21 (later MIKE 11 and MIKE 21) for mainframe computers. MIKE by DHI software is still being developed and reinvented today, and is an important tool in making our 50-years of knowledge globally accessible.

We would like to invite all customers attending this year’s UGM to choose a gift from the three options below: -

Option 1: Recognising that our first commercially available software product was MOUSE, our 1D pipe flow model, we are pleased to offer prospective and existing users of MIKE FLOOD a significant discount on the addition of one MIKE FLOOD 1D Urban module to their installation. For the price of one year’s support and maintenance (a discount of over 80%), you can create the most flexible 3-way 1D-2D integrated flood modelling tool yet available. So now you can see for yourselves how MOUSE has evolved.

Option 2: We are pleased to offer everyone attending this year’s UGM a free pass to a one-day MIKE SHE public workshop (date to be confirmed) with a focus on natural flood management. In view of recent events in the UK, we hope to promote a more sustainable and natural total flood risk management solution. We feel that MIKE SHE, and its companion models, are ideal tools for the quantitative assessment and optimisation of land management techniques for natural flood mitigation; including the use of restored wetlands, tree planting, reconfigured flow routes, riverine buffer strips, etc. Attendees of the MIKE SHE workshop will receive a free 6-month 'commercial' evaluation licence for MIKE SHE for use on live projects.

Option 3: We would like to offer customers with valid SMA (on MIKE 21 FMHD, MIKE 3 FMHD or MIKE 21 BW) a free-of-charge copy of MIKE Animator Plus, or a 50% discount on the purchase price of the MIKE 21/3 FM ECO Lab and ABM Lab modules.

All offers are limited to one ‘gift’ per customer / organisation (UK only) and are subject to change or withdrawal without notice. All software discounts are valid on Corporate licences only, for a maximum period of three months from the date of the UGM, and prerequisite modules may be required. Places on the MIKE SHE workshop are limited so please contact us as soon as possible if you would like to take part.

Online booking is now available here, so don’t miss out, make your booking now!

As usual, our Symposium is free of charge and participants will receive lunch and refreshments on both days. Overnight accommodation is available at the venue for a special rate of £94.50 per person per night, including evening meal and breakfast.

We very much hope to see you at what will undoubtedly be a very interesting and informative event.
