Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Given the wealth of international conferences in nice venues, it is often quite difficult to successfully solicit active researchers for innovative conferences. This was the case for the Series of the International Electronic Conference in Water Sciences (ECWS) sponsored by Water and MDPI. Notwithstanding the aforementioned difficulty, about 40 papers were submitted to ECWS-4 (the 4th edition of ECWS), an encouraging improvement from previous editions. The success of ECWS-4 implies a change of mentality in researchers who do not attend the conference in person but are still able to share their ideas and projects with the larger community thereby.
As the final act of such an innovative process, we sent out a call for papers to all the researchers who work in this field and in particular those who have submitted a paper to the 4th electronic conference to be included in this special issue
The extremely diverse topics of ECWS-4 range from natural water resources management to water treatments, from high-tech pipe systems to storm and combined sewers, and all refer to the theme of urban hydraulics and hydrology. This Special Issue constitutes a tremendous chance to contribute to a comprehensive (and quite concise) textbook. In fact, the urgent need to refine reliable and sustainable tools for the management of the natural resources in the present scenario dominated by climate change is apparent to all. Moreover, the growing prestige of Water guarantees very fast circulation of the selected papers in the scientific and technical community.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
