To participate in WATERCON, the first step is to submit an abstract to be considered.  If your paper is well thought out and pertinent to the subject matter,  it is likely to be considered. In order to provide a variety of presentations, we are limiting the number of selected papers to one per author and three per organization. You can submit as many as you like, but the selection will be reduced to one per author and three per organization. 

Types of Presentations

Abstracts are accepted for technical sessions of 30 minutes in length or workshops that are longer.  Workshops are encouraged to be hands on with all supplies provided by the trainer. Students are encouraged to submit poster applications online using this link.

Benefits of Presenting

  • Free member rate registration for day of presenting

How Your Presentation Will Be Selected

  • A team of evaluators will blindly review your abstract submittal and score it against the following criteria: Value, familiarity with the topic, and  difference from previously presented topics.

Tips for Presenting

Participants at WATERCON are especially interested in case studies, utility presentations, panel discussions, hands-on workshops and operator study workshops.  Submissions that appear to be commercial may be rejected.
