Delft-FEWS Australian User Days 2021

11 May 2021  - 20 May 2021 Online (Microsoft Teams, hosted by Sunwater)

Program and link to courses

In 2021, we're back with a second edition of the online Australiasian Delft-FEWS User Days. This way all users can participate, even in the event of a last-minute lockdown.

It also makes it possible to invite international speakers to share their knowledge and experience with us down under. The program is shaping up nicely. It's still under construction though, so we’ll keep updating this page as we go along.

And lastly, the online format means we can offer no less than 4 courses this year. Please make sure you register on the course pages: 

The organizing committee is hoping to "see" you soon!
