Water Conferences Announce Your Conference
3–6 September 2019 5th International Water Industry Conference 2019 (IWIC2019)
We would like to invite water professionals working for academia, industrial sectors, and government agencies to the 5th International Water Industry Conference to be held on 3 through 6 September, 2019, Daegu, Korea. Daegu Metropolitan City and Kyungpook National University organize the conference as a parallel event along with the Korea International Water Week hosted by the Korea Ministry of Environment.
Contamination of the Nakdong River, which runs around the city and serves as a major drinking water source for 10 million people in the southeastern part of Korea, has been a longstanding agenda with respect to clean, safe, and sustainable water supply. To overcome the agony, the city and public have made every effort while implementing innovative water technologies as well as best managing water sources and wastewater effluents. In recent years, the Korean government and city started to build a national water cluster for the development, testing, verification, and commercialization of novel water and wastewater technologies, materials, parts, and equipment(for more information, click on the link http://www.dwin.or.kr/home/engindex/. Finally, the water cluster facilities are open to the research, development, and business activities in July, 2019. All the attendants of the conference will have the very first chance to visit the new national water center of Korea, which can play a central role in the water industry of Korea and potentially of the world.
The conference deals with important topics of water research, such as biological wastewater treatment technologies, electrochemical and advanced oxidation processes, membrane-based water and wastewater treatment, desalination and concentrate treatment, resource recovery, energy positive treatment systems, water quality and resources management, convergence technologies, and so on. We thus encourage all of you to come and share your knowledge, understanding, and experiences with international scholars, researchers, and engineers. The beautiful scenery of the city in the autumn season will be another attraction to all the guests coming from all over the world. We hope to see you soon.

4–7 September 2019 The 16th International Conference on Environmental Science and Technology
Island of Rhodes, Greece
CEST biennial series has become one of the worldwide leading environmental events gathering experts, scientists, entrepreneurs as well as representatives of public administration and social initiatives presenting state-of-the-art research and addressing emerging environmental issues. A selection of topics for which the Scientific and Programme Committee is particularly seeking contributions can be found https://cest2019.gnest.org/thematic-areas-and-topics.
The previous event, CEST2017, was the most successful event since the series was initially launched in 1989, with 460 participants from 75 countries originating from 6 continents (Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, South America and Australia). The programme included 415 oral and 253 poster presentations from 25 unique research areas. Participants also benefited from the interaction with 15 distinguished scientists that were invited and delivered keynote and plenary talks. CEST2019, coincides with the celebration of the 30 years anniversary (1989-2019) of CEST series and we are aiming to make it a memorable event.
All the papers that are selected for either oral or poster presentation undergo a review process. As a result of the improving quality of the papers in previous conferences, their proceedings have been included in databases, such as Science Citation Index (ISI) and SRCosmos. Since 2015, the papers that are presented in CEST, are submitted to cooperating journals for review and publication in special issues.
The conference is organized by the University of the Aegean (Greece) together with the South Aegean Region and is supported by the University of Salerno (Italy) and the Imperial College London (UK). The main organizer is the multi-disciplinary Global NEST (Network of Environmental Science and Technology); an international scientific movement that has been successfully developing for the last 29 years with members from more than 60 countries. Global NEST is an international scientific movement focusing on innovative environmental issues.
During CEST2019 you will have the opportunity to:
- present and discuss your research with scientists from around the world
- expand your network
- attend presentations covering all the latest trends and innovations in the field of environmental science and technology
- meet with our prestigious invited speakers (to be announced)
- enjoy the island of Rhodes, one of the most famous Greek touristic attractions!
More info as well as registration and submission of paper are available at http://cest.gnest.org. The abstract submission deadline is the 12th December 2018.
17–19 August 2020 8th International Conference on Flood Management (ICFM8)
The University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa, USA
The 8th International Conference on Flood Management (ICFM8) seeks to further advance global research, practice and policy in flood management. With an emphasis on ‘resilience’, the theme for ICFM8 marks the further progress of integrated approaches to flood management which were first embraced as the International Symposia on Flood Defence (Kassel 2000, Beijing 2002, Nijmegen 2005 and Toronto 2008), the precursor of the subsequent ICFM series (ICFM5 - Tokyo, 2011; ICFM6 - São Paulo 2014; ICFM7 - Leeds, 2017).
ICFM8 will be held in Iowa City, Iowa, USA on August 17–19, 2020, and will be hosted by the Iowa Flood Center, a research group of the century old IIHR-Hydroscience & Engineering (IIHR) at The University of Iowa. The theme of ICFM8 is ‘Lowering Risk by Increasing Resilience’ and will focus on building resilience into current and future flood management strategies and approaches as envisioned by the United Nations programmatic documents Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Sendai agreement on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) adopted in 2015. The conference is an integral part of the week-long centennial celebrations at IIHR.
