We are pleased to welcome you to Singapore for the eighth Water Convention, a flagship event of the Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) from 8-12 July 2018.
During the Water Convention 2018 Call for Papers, close to 500 papers were received from 45 countries, and we would like to express our sincere appreciation for your continued support for the Water Convention. There were many exceptional papers submitted this year, and among the Programme Committee members, there was unanimous consensus that this made selecting papers to fit into a very limited number of slots a challenging task.
We believe that the Water Convention 2018 programme will be the very best yet. The week will kick-start on Sunday, 8 July with the Hot Issues Workshops, featuring emerging topics such as potable reuse, social resilience in the face of extreme events and networks of the future. The following Monday afternoon, 9 July, will be dedicated for one of the most popular segments of the Water Convention, the Poster Presentation Session, when the conference corridors will come to life with more than 150 presenters pitching their projects to the poster judges and engaging the crowd in a lively Q&A session. The Technical Sessions will then begin on Tuesday, 10 July, covering diverse topics ranging from issues such as energy-efficient wastewater management technologies and smart water networks to building water-wise communities and regulatory frameworks for drinking water quality, before ending with the Closing Plenary on Wednesday, 11 July. All in all, close to 350 presentations and countless discussions will be conducted over the span of 4 days.
This year’s Water Convention also marks the 10th year anniversary of the SIWW since the inaugural event back in 2008. Over the last decade, the Water Convention has evolved into a cornerstone of SIWW, and this has been made possible only through the active support and participation of its delegates – the open sharing, lively debates, and sense of camaraderie in our collective effort of building a sustainable water world is a rare and unique trait of the Water Convention which we hope to maintain and grow in the next decade to come. Thus, we hope that you will join us in July 2018 in Singapore to contribute your ideas and experiences, and together with the global water community, work towards our shared goal of building a sustainable world.
