Call for Papers: Sensing in Water, 27-28 September 2017, Nottingham Belfry

Meaningful measurement from the micro to the macro scale’

Now a well established conference in the water sector calendar, the 4th biennial Sensing in Water Conference will build on the success of previous conferences and is an opportunity for delegates from the water sensor community to learn about the latest developments in water sensors and associated technologies.

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

  1. On new and evolving sensing technologies for improved detection of chemical and biological targets in water.  A focus on future sensing technologies and their application would be within scope and presentations that highlight innovation and commercialisation are particularly welcome.
  2. On the treatment works the sensor has the important role of telling the operator what is happening and controlling the various treatment systems. Presentations that discuss the role on the sensor and how it can inform the operator to help protect compliance and increase efficiency are welcome.
  3. Water and wastewater networks, remote and buried infrastructure – assets that are critical in the provision of water and environmental services. We are looking for examples of novel solutions or creative applications of technology that illustrate how monitoring and measurement at the network scale is delivering value for stakeholders.
  4. Sensors for Catchments – presentations on catchment monitoring using remote, portable or strategic environmental sensing systems.

Please note that the proposed presentations should strongly relate to use of sensors within the water industry. For consideration in the programme for SiW 2017, 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 abstract submission: 31 March 2017
