Dear colleagues – young professionals of the water sector,
In 2021 we organize our 12th Eastern European IWA YWP Conference for Young Water Professionals, this confer-ence will be our first virtual conference. Due to the pandemic we can not travel to Riga as it was previously planned. We would love to meet you in person, but unfortunately in 2021 it will not be possible. So lets meet online and try to do best out of it. And after all, virtual events offer many advantages.
For this conference, with a title Water Research and Innovations in Digital Era -VIRTUAL we have prepared the following program:
- We start with several virtual workshops, which will take place on 31.03.2020
- Two following days will be dedicated to scientific presentations. All oral presentations will be recorded by au-thors in advance and posted on our website. Only registered participants will get access to these presentations.
- Also, this year we would like to give more opportunities for YWPs who would like to prepare an oral presenta-tion. So we plan several parallel sessions which will run at the same time.
- During the session authors will just give a short overview of the presentation/research and use the session time for questions and discussions.
- In 2021, we will have only 10 Min presentations, no posters this year.
- We plan an interactive social program which will take part during the conference days: digital coffee chats, round tables, quiz, and more.
And as for our previous conferences:
- 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 will be published in the Journals of IWA with high ISI index after an additional review (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 web-site).

The Organising Team will help you to get ready, prepare your abstracts, papers and record your presentations. 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 12 years we became an IWA family…”, this comment I have heard so many times during our last conferences. So let ́s keep together despite all odds… Use this chance to join our international network of young water professionals.
