AQUA ≈360 – Water for All: Emerging Issues and Innovations

AQUA ≈360 – Water for All: Emerging Issues and Innovations is being organised by the Centre for Water SystemsUniversity of Exeter, the United Kingdom. The conference will be online and take place from 31st August to 2nd September 2021.

This virtual gathering of internationally leading scientists, engineers, planners and practitioners and “rising stars” is to provide an exciting opportunity to discuss and showcase cutting-edge water management research and technical, institutional, modelling, planning and community-driven social and policy innovations. The event is designed to enable cross-fertilisation of new ideas for the delivery of sustainable, resilient, energy-efficient and smart water management to address climate change, rapid urbanisation and water pollution and secure safe and sufficient water and sanitation for all.

Conference Topics

including, but not limited to, analysis, fate and consequences of conventional and emerging contaminants in surface and groundwater, urban (green) water infrastructure water quality issues, antimicrobial resistance, remote and real time monitoring, sensors, modelling, case studies

lab and field scale studies on innovative treatment processes, their optimisation and modelling, energy efficient/solar desalination, synthesis and application of Nano adsorbents/materials

including, but not limited to, evaluation approaches, integrated water management, systems approaches, water distribution (including intermittent water supply) and wastewater collection networks analysis, life cycle analysis, economics, policy, institutional and social aspects, transition from centralised to decentralised systems and vice versa in the developing and the developed world, and innovative sanitation options

approaches to reduce greenhouse gases including carbon foot print at water utility and domestic scales, innovative strategies to reduce and recover energy from water systems

including, but not limited to, studies on urban water consumption and availability, demand supply balance, demand management approaches including water efficiency enablers, greywater recycling and rainwater harvesting

including, but not limited to, innovations into primary to tertiary biological, chemical and physical treatment processes, nutrients and energy recovery approaches, treatment facilities operation and maintenance optimisation, process modelling, and decision-making

flood and drought risk quantification and management approaches

efficient irrigation, water recycling and reclamation for agricultural use, and desalination of seawater and brackish water for irrigation

application of data science, including (but not limited to) AI, deep learning, mega data, data virtualisation, data governance etc, for water management
