Report on Hydroinformatics 2004, Singapore
The Sixth International Conference on Hydroinformatics was uniformly well organised both from the location and from the scientific points of view. The city of Singapore is a delightfully exotic place and at the same time a modern Asian metropolis. About 350 delegates were very comfortable in the Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre; all the rooms were provided with air conditioning systems, which gave the Conference environment a pleasant and enjoyable atmosphere. A highquality exhibition in the foyer outside the meeting rooms was an integral part of the Conference. The organisation of the sessions was properly arranged as were the rooms where the presentations took place. The light and the audio systems in the presentation rooms allowed the audience to see the slides of the presentations and to listen to the speakers with no problems regardless of the place where people were seated in the conference rooms. At no time was there any sensation of crowding in the rooms despite the large number of people attending the Conference.
