FEFLOW Newsletter January 2008

Dear FEFLOW user,

After the merger between WASY and the DHI group last year, we have now made one more step towards a full integration of the two organizations. At the beginning of this year, the German branch of DHI - DHI Wasser und Umwelt GmbH - has been merged with WASY, forming the new company DHI-WASY GmbH. Of course, DHI-WASY will service you in exactly the same way you are used to, and your contacts in the company will not change. The full range of products offered by DHI-WASY will be presented to the German-speaking market at the DHI-WASY conference "GIS und Modelle in der Wasserwirtschaft" on April 3 and 4, 2008 in Berlin.

You can now directly benefit from the merger: Add a MIKE 11 or MIKE SHE license to your FEFLOW license (or vice versa) for only 1,000 Euro extra in our 1+1=2 deal (conditions apply).

In the sections below, please find information about the latest patch for FEFLOW, upcoming training courses and conferences, too.

For many FEFLOW users, the 10th International Mine Water Association Congress "Mine Water and the Environment", which will be held in Karlovy Vary/Czech Republic June 2-5, 2008, may be of special interest. Please note that the deadline for abstract submission has been shifted to 31 January 2008. Modeling-related presentations are very welcome!

We all wish you a happy and prosperous new year 2008!

Best regards,
The FEFLOW team


Effective January 1st, 2008, the former DHI Wasser & Umwelt GmbH (Syke, Germany) and WASY GmbH (Berlin, Germany) have merged into DHI-WASY GmbH. A new company logo symbolizes this joining of business activities of the former WASY and the German DHI branch.

DHI-WASY will be the Centre of Excellence for groundwater modeling within the DHI group worldwide. In addition, DHI-WASY represents the DHI group in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Our new, extended range of products and services will be presented during a conference in April 2008.

At this conference for the German-speaking market, held April 3 and 4 in Berlin, DHI-WASY will present the full portfolio of products for water management.
