Dear colleagues – young professionals of the water sector,
In 2020 we organise our 12th Eastern European IWA YWP Conference for Young Water Professionals, this conference will take place in the pearl of the Baltic sea – Riga!
For this conference, with a title Innovations in Water Sector we have prepared following program:
- Two days will be dedicated to scientific presentations. This part of the conference will take place in Riga Technical University. Also this year we would like to give more opportunities for YWPs who would like to prepare an oral presentations. So we proceed with a concept: two parallel sessions will run at the same time, one focusing on water management, another on water treatment technologies; however coffee breaks and lunch will take place in one common area to support networking between YWPs. Moreover, there will be long and short type of presentation: 10 minutes for a standard presentation and 3 minutes for a short presentation plus poster. We believe that in this way we help YWPs suc- cessfully apply for financial support, as for most of the countries a poster presentation is not sufficient reason to travel abroad.
- An extended social program which will take part during the conference days: dinners, meetings, technical and cultural tours and more!
Moreover in 2020:
- The extended abstracts will be included into the Book of Extended Abstracts with an ISBN.
- The full publications will be included into the IWA Conference Proceedings.
- The selected papers might be published in the Journals of IWA with high ISI index (Water Research ISI 5.323,
Water Science and Technology ISI 1.106, Journal of Water Supply: Research &Technology – Aqua ISI 0.843, Water Science & Technology: Water Supply ISI 0.394, more info on the IWA website).

The Organising Committee will help you to obtain a visa if it will be needed. As during the last years, we have a reduced registration fee for the young water professionals coming from low-income countries; additional reduction is foreseen for IWA members.
“During the last 10 years we became an IWA family…”, this comment I have heard so many times during our last conference in Prague. And I would like to invite You to be part of it! Use this chance to join our international network of young water professionals.
Hope to see you soon in Riga!
