Call for Papers
There are four types of papers which can be submitted to the Congress: a) Oral b) Poster c) Demonstration d) Distant.
For oral and poster papers the authors initially submit an abstract, and after acceptance, they are invited to submit the full paper with a size between 2000-4000 words. The text of the abstract should be between 200-250 words.
For the demonstration presentations only an abstract (of the above size) is required. A specially designed session for demonstration presentations will be organised. Demonstration presentations are mainly expected from the industrial and professional sectors promoting skills and innovative methods for tackling real world problems.
For the distant papers the authors are obliged to send their presentation in a video after the acceptance of their full paper. The full paper is of the size of the first two categories. Distant papers will be presented in a specially designed session without the presence of the authors who can be scientists from any country of the world apart from EU countries.
All the full papers of the (a), (b) and (d) categories and the abstracts of the (c) category will be included in the Proceedings of the Congress and will be available to the participants at the beginning of the Congress. The Proceedings of the Congress will be published in a Special Issue of the journal “European Water”.
All the papers of the (a), (b) and (d) categories will be assessed for selection (after the necessary modifications, improvements, and expansion) to the journals of EWRA, Water Resources Management, Environmental Processes and Water Utility Journal.
Abstract submissions is now open. Deadline for submission of abstracts: 31 October 2016.
Abstract Submission Extended – New Deadline: 21 November 2016
To submit your abstract please use the submission form.
Distant papers may be submitted by scientists/engineers from all countries apart from EU countries.
Distant papers will be presented without the presence of the authors in a specially designed “virtual” conference. The presentation of the papers will be done by videos prepared by the authors and submitted after the final acceptance of their paper. Videos of 5-6 minutes containing no more than 10 transparencies are required for each presentation. A rapporteur will be responsible for the presentation of the papers.
The concept behind the “distant paper” submission is to give the opportunity to a wider audience of people from distant countries to participate in this benchmark event avoiding the burden of costly travelling.
Distant papers may be submitted in all topics/conferences of the Congress. They will be also included in the Proceedings and the abstracts in the Volume of Abstracts of the Congress. Finally, they will be assessed for inclusion (after expansion and amendment) in special issues of the journals, Water Resources Management, Environmental Processes and Water Utility Journal.
The guidelines for writing the abstract and the full paper are the same as for all the other types of papers (e.g. oral or poster). The deadlines for distant papers submission are the same as for all the other types of papers.
The Congress will be organised in a number of conferences. Each conference will have one or more sessions. Session conveners will be responsible for the oral presentation of the papers by the authors discussions which follow at the end of each session. Oral presentations will have a duration of 12-15 minutes. In the first session of each conference a keynote presentation by a prominent expert will be delivered.
Special conferences will be organised for the poster and demonstration presentations.
Finally, one particular “virtual” conference will be devoted to the distant papers.
All accepted papers (oral, poster or distant) will be included in the Proceedings of the Congress published in a Special Issue of the journal “European Water”.
A number of the papers (amended and extended) will then be selected by the conveners of the conferences to be published in the journals Water Resources Management, Environmental Processes and Water Utility Journal.
