Here is a message from Dr. Avi Ostfeld:
On May 26, 2005 I have issued a call to this list on a “Battle of the Sensors” exercise as part of the planned Special Issue of the Journal of Water Resources Planning and Management on Drinking Water Distribution Systems Security. Since than I have worked closely with Prof. Jim Uber from the University of Cincinnati to formulate the “Battle” rules, network examples, etc. and came to two main conclusions: (1) the “Battle” is an extremely interesting and challenging issue, and (2) it would be much better to have a session (or more) on that topic, prior to moving to a journal manuscript. We (myself and Jim) are inviting you all (see attached initial announcement) to take part at this challenge during the 8th Water Distribution Systems Analysis SYMPOSIUM in Cincinnati, August 27-30, 2006. If you have any further questions or concerns don’t hesitate to contact me or Jim.
