Conference Objectives and Benefits of Participating
Adequate and reliable water resources are essential to the
sustainable development of any modern society. Around the
world, water managers, engineers, scientists and policy makers
are working together to develop and implement solutions to
address various water issues. The aims of this international
forum are fourfold:
present new findings about and approaches
to addressing wicked water problems;
promote communication and collaboration
among scientists, engineers, managers, and policy- and decision-makers
on challenges and cutting-edge solutions;
share real-world experiences in addressing
water challenges under changing conditions/environments;
present applications and guidelines to address
water issues in environments facing water shortage.
- The conference co-chairs are working the Editor-in-Chief of
the Journal of the American Water Resources Association (JAWRA)
to develop a featured collection of papers arising from our conference.
JAWRA is dedicated to publishing original papers characterized
by their broad approach to water resources issues. All papers
are refereed prior to publication. More details to follow.
The focus of this two-day conference, being held at Tel Aviv University,
(see topics) is to present scientific
results and to demonstrate real-world experiences on innovative
research about and workable solutions to various global water problems.
Both local and international participants will benefit from this
conference's dialogue on developing ways to address and avoid water
crises due to an imbalance between water supply and demand, changing
climate, population growth, urbanization, water scarcity, and water
Why come to Israel for this conference?
Located in a semi-arid region characterized by chronic water
scarcity, Israel has become a global leader in developing
and applying innovative water solutions and technologies.
Tel Aviv provides an ideal location for exchanging information,
knowledge and data among researchers, practitioners, and water
officials. In addition, conference attendees have the option
of attending WATEC 2017, Israel's biennial Water Technology
and Environmental Control Exhibition & Conference, which
will be held in Tel Aviv immediately following this conference.
Come and join scientists, engineers, practitioners, water managers
and professionals from academia, government agencies, private institutions
and consulting organizations who will share their findings, experiences,
opinions, ideas and interests on cutting-edge solutions to wicked
water problems. Please join us in beautiful Tel Aviv for this exciting
