SWIG

Call for papers: SiW 2019

SWIG is seeking abstracts from end users, regulators, designers, engineers, researchers and manufacturers of water sensors & related technology on the following themes:

  • Catchment monitoring – Presentations on catchment monitoring and management solutions with specific interest in the sensing of Metaldehyde, Phosphate & Nitrate(s). This topic covers a broader section of industry than just the Water & Sewerage companies and presentations showing cross sector collaboration would be welcomed.
  • Drainage infrastructure faces pressure from climate change, urbanisation and population rise, presenting an ever-increasing need to monitor and even control the flows and conditions within these systems. This session will explore newly available technologies, state-of-the-art academic studies, and remaining barriers to the smart management of drainage networks.
  • Distribution networks; how are sensors being used to help water companies move towards smart water networks? We are looking for papers that are broad scope and cover installation, maintenance and application of sensors as well as the interpretation of the data.
  • Data analysis: The Water Industry collects millions of pieces of data but automatically converting this data to gain insight into situational awareness is a relatively modern phenomenon. In this session we will look at how the water industry can use its data more effectively to see how the industry can use data to increase operational & financial efficiency in order to further improve the service to the customer.

Please note that the proposed presentations should strongly relate to use of sensors within the water industry. For consideration in the programme for SiW 2019, please send an abstract (100 words max) to rosa.richards@swig.org.uk stating which theme your presentation would fit into. Presentations will be 15-20 minutes in length.

Deadline for call for papers: Friday 29 March 2019
