iWISE 2019 : International Conference on Water, Informatics, Sustainability, and Environment
Call For Papers
We are now accepting proposals for the International Conference on Water, Informatics, Sustainability and Environment, hosted on August 07-09, 2019 at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada.
The overarching theme for this year’s iWISE conference is climate change and global warming, with the organizing themes of water, informatics, sustainability and environment guiding the discussion. As opposed to merely taking stock of the current climate crisis, the aim of the conference is to provide a forward-looking appraisal of technologies and innovative solutions that can be harnessed to reverse the calamitous trajectory on which we find ourselves.
Keynote speakers will accentuate the core themes of the conference, and breakout groups along the four themes and tracks (see below) will provide space for participants to delve deeper into topics through lively discussions.
We welcome proposals from a diverse range of people, not merely academics, to reflect the heterogeneous makeup of our attendees and the conviction that we must work together to overcome this enormous and pressing challenge. In past years, we have been privileged to have attendees representing a broad variety of constituencies, including government organisations, NGOs, and private initiatives. We look forward to welcoming an ever-more diverse set of attendees at this year’s conference.
