We warmly welcome you to join us for the 9th edition of the Water Convention, one of the flagship events of the Singapore International Water Week (SIWW).
Over the past decade, the Water Convention has grown to be a global platform where researchers, practitioners and technology providers from all continents gathered and fostered collaborations through several workshops, technical sessions and poster presentations. In 2018, it drew more than 1,200 delegates from 59 countries worldwide and featured over 300 oral and poster presentations in 6 Hot Issues Workshops and 36 technical sessions.
The Water Convention 2020 aims to showcase the latest developments in technologies and best practices that promote sustainability in providing high quality, safe and reliable water and in managing wastewater effectively. Discussions and debates over strategic approaches and innovations that are necessary to sustain the resiliency and liveability of our cities for the future remain as key focus areas.
We hope these discussions and presentations will continue to spur cooperation amongst the various stakeholders in the water sector globally as we pursue our common goal to ensure an effective and efficient water supply for all. On this note, we welcome you to share your ideas and experiences by submitting your abstracts on the latest water technologies and innovations for the Water Convention 2020.
