      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The use of Horizontal Subsurface Constructed Wetlands (HSCWs) for treating wastewaters in small communities has increased in the last years due to HSCW’s ecological singularities. Unfortunately, the same singularities ...
    • A norm-aware multi-agent system for social simulations in a river basin 

      Gómez Sebastià, Ignasi; Oliva Felipe, Luís Javier; Cortés García, Claudio Ulises; Verdaguer, Marta; Poch Espallargas, Manel; Rodríguez Roda, Ignasi; Vázquez Salceda, Javier (Springer, 2017)
      Part of book or chapter of book
      Open Access
      Wastewater management is a complex task involving a wide range of technical environmental and social factors. Furthermore, it typically requires the coordination of a heterogeneous society of actors with different goals. ...
    • Addressing the evaluation of EDSS-maintenance 

      Turon, Clàudia; Comas Matas, Joaquim; Cortés García, Claudio Ulises; Poch Espallargas, Manel (2006)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Daily operation and maintenance tasks are needed to guarantee the correct performance of constructed wetlands. The definition of these activities is a complex task since these actions vary according to the characteristics ...
    • Crossing the death valley to transfer environmental decision support systems to the water market 

      Poch Espallargas, Manel; Comas Matas, Joaquim; Cortés García, Claudio Ulises; Sànchez-Marrè, Miquel; Rodriguez-Roda, Ignasi (2017-04-10)
      Article
      Open Access
      Environmental decision support systems (EDSSs) are attractive tools to cope with the complexity of environmental global challenges. Several thoughtful reviews have analyzed EDSSs to identify the key challenges and best ...
    • Decisions on urban water systems: some support 

      Poch Espallargas, Manel; Cortés García, Claudio Ulises; Comas Matas, Joaquim; Rodríguez Roda, Ignasi; Sànchez-Marrè, Miquel (Universitat de Girona (UdG). Servei de Publicacions, 2012-09-01)

      “Water is a scarce resource and its management has to be as effective as possible”. Most of us would certainly agree with this fine sounding phrase. But developing it and putting it into practice is not easy. Firstly, ...
    • Modeling the input-output behaviour of wastewater treatment plants using soft computing techniques 

      Belanche Muñoz, Luis Antonio; Valdes Ramos, Julio José; Comas Matas, Joaquim; Rodriguez Roda, Ignasi; Poch Espallargas, Manel (1998)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPs) control and prediction under a wide range of operating conditions is an important goal in order to avoid breaking of environmental balance, keep the system in stable operating conditions ...
    • Reasoning about river basins: WaWO+ revisited

      Article
      Open Access
      This paper characterizes part of an interdisciplinary research effort on Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques and tools applied to Environmental Decision-Support Systems (EDSS). WaWO+ the ontology we present here, ...
    • The fourth-revolution in the water sector encounters the digital revolution 

      Garrido Baserba, Manel; Corominas Tabares, Lluis; Cortés García, Claudio Ulises; Rosso, Diego; Poch Espallargas, Manel (2020-03-10)
      Article
      Open Access
      The so-called fourth revolution in the water sector will encounter the Big data and Artificial Intelligence (AI) revolution. The current data surplus stemming from all types of devices together with the relentless increase ...
    • The organisational structure of an agent-based model for the management of wastewater systems 

      Oliva Felipe, Luis Javier; Verdaguer, Marta; Poch Espallargas, Manel; Vázquez Salceda, Javier; Cortés García, Claudio Ulises (2021-04-30)
      Article
      Open Access
      Water managers have to deal with complex problems due to the intertwined characteristics of processes, in particular those that occur in wastewater systems. Existing modelling approaches are usually centred in the physical, ...
