Dear author,

The following aims to provide guidelines for authors on how to compose their manuscript with regards to conventions of English.

The maximal length of your outline paper is max. 4 pages all included:

  • two A4 pages of text (max. 1000 words);
  • plus up to two additional pages of tables/figures.

All abstracts should be written in English. An international Programme Committee will review the abstracts. Only posters presented in person by the author(s) will be accepted. Authors must be able to meet their own expenses and registration fee. When submitting your proposal online ( see button below ), you will find a more detailed list of keywords that we will use to categorise your submission, and match it with appropriate reviewers.

The deadline for submitting abstracts for AD16 has been shifted from October 8th to December 15th.

Please be aware it’s only possible to submit an abstract of poster ( oral presentations already closed )

Once all proposals have been reviewed, and as the final programme for the congress is developed, the selected papers and posters will be grouped into appropriate sessions. The names of the themes, tracks and topics may change to reflect these groupings. A number of Selected papers will be offered to the IWA journal Water Science and Technology for publication.

If you present a poster paper, it will be on display the conference days and eligible for a best poster award, which will be announced at the congress closing ceremony. The difference from a platform presentation is that you should let your poster do the ‘talking’; i.e., the material presented must convey your key points. If you prefer to present a poster, please note this when you submit your proposal.
