Overview Geoinforma cs and Geocomputa onal Modeling for Water Resources Engineering and Environmental Science course not only provides a comprehensive introduc on to the fundamentals of geoinforma cs but also demonstrates how GIS and mathema cal models can be integrated to develop spa al decision support systems to support water resources and environmental planning, management and engineering. The course has been designed to enhance the technical skills of the faculty, engineers, scien sts, scholars and students and make aware of the recent advances in GIS and Geocomputa on methods. The benefits and challenges of integra ng mathema cal models within GIS in water resources and environmental fields will be dealt in this course, demonstra ng how the conjunc ve use of these technologies can be employed to harness increasingly available digital data and develop spa ally‐oriented sustainable solu ons. More specifically, the course will introduce the par cipant to both geospa al and modeling methods and demonstrate how they both can be integrated to provide unified solu ons. The course adopts a hands‐on approach and emphasizes ac ve learning by balancing theory and hands‐on problem solving.

Course Schedule September 17 ‐ 22, 2018 Number of par cipants for the course will be limited to fi y (50).

Who Should Attend  Employees of Government, Public and Private sector having at least a graduate degree.  Student at all levels ( Senior B.Tech. /M.Sc. / M.Tech. /Ph.D.).  Faculty from academic ins tu ons and technical ins tu ons.  Researcher in industry.  Scien st in research organiza on.

Fees The par cipa on fees for taking the course is as follows: Par cipants from abroad : Industry / Research Organiza on Officers : Government, Public and Private Sector Employees : Academic Ins tu ons (a) Faculty : (b) Student/Scholar :

US$ 300 ` 20,000 ` 15,000 ` 10,000 ` 5,000

The above fees include all instruc onal materials, computer use for tutorials and assignments. The par cipants will be provided with accommoda on on payment basis subject to availability.

Course Objectives The primary objec ves of the course are as follows: (i) Exposing par cipants to the fundamentals of GIS and Geocomputa onal modeling. (ii) Providing exposure to prac cal problems and their solu ons through case studies. (iii) Enhancing the understanding and capability of the par cipants to GIS‐enabled modeling aspects in water resources and environmental engineering problems using hands‐on ac ve learning concepts.

The Faculty Prof. Venkatesh Uddameri, Ph.D., P.E. is currently Director of Water Resources Center and Professor of Civil, Environmental and Construc on Engineering at Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas, USA. He currently is also the Editor‐in‐Chief of the Journal of American Water Resources Associa on and previously served as the guest editor for the Environmental Geology Journal and on the Editorial Board of the Clean Technologies and Environmental Policy Journal. Earlier he worked as Professor at Texas A&M University, Kingsville and the Director, CREST‐RESSACA, NSF funded center for research excellence at TAMUK and has received various Honors and Awards which include 2012 Outstanding Professor of the year at TAMUK, 2004 Presiden al Dis nguished Research Award, 1994 American Petroleum Ins tute / Na onal Groundwater Associa on Student Scholarship (1 of 5 awards interna onally). His research interests are in the broad area of water resources engineering with a special emphasis on mathema cal modeling, geocomputa onal methods. He has published over 100 peer‐reviewed journal ar cles, book chapters, technical reports, conference proceedings and abstracts. His research has been funded by various agencies including the Na onal Science Founda on, US Department of Agriculture, Na onal Oceanic and Atmospheric Administra on, Department of Energy, U.S. Geological Survey as well as several other state and local agencies. He got 25 research grants totaling over 13 Million USD. He has established several interna onal collabora ons in various countries on groundwater and environmental related issues. Dr. Uddameri has published two books – GIS and Geocomputa on in Water Resource Science and Engineering (co‐authored with B. Dixon) published by John Wiley and Sons and AGU in 2016. He also co‐edited a book – Hydraulic Fracturing Impacts and Technology – A Mul disciplinary Perspec ve, (Editors: V. Uddameri, A. Morse and K. Tindle) published by CRC Press in 2015. Dr. Srinivas Pasupule is presently serving the Department of Civil Engineering at Indian Ins tute of Technology (Indian School of Mines), Dhanbad as one of the founder faculty members in the capacity as an Assistant Professor. He is specialized in Hydrology and Water Resources Engineering. His areas of research interest are: Remote Sensing and GIS applica ons in Water Resources and Environmental Engineering, Integrated watershed management and Flow through porous media. He is execu ng a research project funded by DST in the area of Groundwater quality and Watershed management. He was instrumental in establishing interna onal collabora on of ISM Dhanbad with TTU Texas, USA. He also co‐edited a book en tled “ Water and its Sustainability in Mining and other Environment: Vision 2050 ” (Editors: Sarkar B.C., Srinivas P., Sreevalsa K.) published by ISM in associa on with Ministry of Earth Sciences, Govt. of India in 2014.
