European Waste Water Management Conference



Call for Papers

Working with our independent Steering Committee, we are pleased to announce the key themes for this years’ event:

Phosphorus and Nutrient Removal and Recovery

Chemical Investigations Programme (CIP2)

Wastewater Catchments and Networks



We are now inviting abstracts from potential speakers who wish to present at this leading industry conference.  We encourage papers that share operational experiences.  If you are a technology supplier and want to present at the conference your presentation must include performance data rather than just claims.  To encourage adoption of your technology an honest pros and cons assessment should be included; outlining where the technology is good and where it wouldn’t apply.

We also encourage papers from early career researchers.  This event provides a great forum to interact with your industry peers, stimulating future collaborations and other opportunities.  Poster opportunities are also available.

Additional themes:
