Showing our strong and consistent commitment to groundwater professionals all over the world, we are proud to announce that DHI-WASY is the very first and so far only sponsor of the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH). With our support we contribute to the global exchange of knowledge in the hydrogeology field. Members from developing countries will benefit from sponsoring in particular.

DHI-WASY will also sponsor the annual conference of the International Mine Water Association (IMWA). This International Mine Water Conference will take place in Pretoria, South Africa, October 19-23 this year. You can find our booth in the exhibition in the main foyer area of the conference centre.

In the week after the Mine Water Conference in South Africe on October 28-30 a FEFLOW training course is offered in collaboration with DHI South Africa in Johannesburg. Please see the FEFLOW training website or contact Andrew Pott (anpo@dhigroup.com, phone +27 117047877) for details.

At the end of this newsletter, we have listed the new FEFLOW patches and upcoming training courses. In fall this year, besides the regular FEFLOW training courses we will offer a broad range of free online seminars and short courses to facilitate the transition from the current FEFLOW 5.x versions to the upcoming FEFLOW 6.

We are looking forward to see many of you in September in Potsdam!
