STAHY 2018 has now concluded. For information on past and future meetings please visit the ICSH website.

The ninth edition of the STAHY International Workshop, STAHY 2018, is organised by the International Commission on Statistical Hydrology (ICSH) of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS).

STAHY 2018 will focus on statistical methods for hydrological applications. This branch of hydrology has a long history, and continues to be an exciting and topical field of research.

STAHY 2018 will bring together the experts – academics and practitioners – and young scientists alike for vibrant scientific discussions and debates. Taking place on the shores of beautiful South Australia, the land of wine and festivals, one thing is certain – it will become a memorable experience for all participants.

One of the STAHY 2018 themes is to celebrate the contributions of Prof George Kuczera, a stalwart of the Australian and international hydrological communities. George has made tremendous contributions to hydrological research and practice over the last 40 years, and this workshop will provide an opportunity for all of us to celebrate these achievements.

The set of invited speakers includes:

  • Prof George Kuczera, University of Newcastle, Australia
  • Prof Andras Bardossy, University of Stuttgart, Germany
  • Prof Neil McIntyre, University of Queensland, Australia
  • Prof Taha Ouarda, National Institute of Scientific Research (INRS), Canada
  • Dr Alan Seed, Australian Bureau of Meteorology, Australia
