IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Groundwater flow modeling using point collocation method
In this study point collocation (PCM) mesh free method is used for groundwater flow modeling. In this method, some
points are distributed on computational domain and it is used shape functions in order to solve governing equation.
Choosing shape function is very important in this method. For this purpose, radial basis functions (RBF) and multi quadric
(MQ) approach is used to build the shape function. The present model is applied for unconfined aquifer under Neyshabur
plain to compute head distribution. This plain is located in northeastern of Iran. Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO)
algorithm has been employed for model calibration. PCM model and PSO algorithm are implemented in Python objective
oriented programming (OOP) language. There is a good agreement between the PCM model results and the field data.
