User conference presentation

The TELEMAC-MASCARET User Conference

The TELEMAC-MASCARET user conference takes place usually during autumn, on an annual basis. This seminar, quite informal, aims at providing:


  • The opportunity for the end-users to discuss with key representatives of the developer and distribution teams;
  • The opportunity for the developer teams to present latest advances and strategic plans;
  • The opportunity for end-users to discuss performance of new versions and features, have a say on ongoing developments; and
  • The opportunity for end-users to present their own work, to share their experiences and get feedback on best practices.

The outcome of previous TELEMAC User meetings is available through the menu to the right. These include the agenda and the presentations made by all during the seminars.

XXVIIth TELEMAC-MASCARET User Conference (2)

The 2021 TELEMAC User conference has been a success. It was hosted by the IMDC in Antwerp - and it was hybrid !


Last year the TELEMAC-MASCARET User Conference had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. After careful consideration of the COVID-19 situation at the time, it was decided to hold the TELEMAC-MASCARET User Conference on the original scheduled dates (Thursday October 14th and Friday 15th 2021).

The conference was organized in a hybrid form. Apart from the physical form, which was held in the Lindner Hotel in Antwerp, Belgium, there was also the possibility to participate online. The pre-conference workshop was in physical form only at the Lindner hotel in Antwerp.
