Workshops proposal

We offer the opportunity to organize pre-conference workshops on 15 September 2025. Workshops can be organized by JCUD working groups or other research teams but should be of interest for the general public i.e. no project meetings.

We welcome both full-day and half-day workshop concepts. Separate registration for workshop attendees is anticipated to offset expenses for refreshment breaks and lunch. Please include details about the organizing committee, the workshop's intended audience, the projected number of participants, and a brief overview of the content.

Please submit your workshop ideas using the submission system (which will be available soon) during the time from from 01 July 2024 until 15 January 2025.

Abstract submission

We welcome submissions of extended abstracts, with a maximum length of four pages. All abstracts will undergo a peer-review process, and acceptance decisions, as well as the determination of presentation format (oral or poster), will be based on the reviews. Accepted abstracts will be included in the conference proceedings, and authors will have the opportunity to update their submissions until June 2025. After the conference, authors of selected abstract will be invited to submit a full paper to a special issue of Water Science and Technology.

For abstract submission it is required to use the provided template.

Please submit your extended abstract using the submission system from the 01 July 2024 until 15 January 2025
