4th International Conference on Water & Society
The Water and Society Conference is to be reconvened in 2017 following the success of the previous meetings, the first of which was held in Las Vegas in 2011, followed by a meeting in 2013 in the New Forest, UK, home to the Wessex Institute, and one in La Coruna, Spain in 2015.
Over the centuries, civilisations have relied on the availability of clean and inexpensive water. This can no longer be taken for granted as the need for water continues to increase due to the pressure from growing global population demanding higher living standards. Agriculture and industry, major users of water, are at the same time those that contribute to its contamination. Water distribution networks in urban areas, as well as soiled water collection systems, present serious problems in response to a growing population as well as the need to maintain ageing infrastructures.
The following list covers some of the topics to be presented at Water and Society 2017. Papers on other subjects related to the objectives of the conference are also welcome.
