    About the Conference

    The fifth National Water and Wastewater Conference will take place from November 3-6, 2019 in Banff, Alberta.

    Before the inception of this Conference CWWA hosted several stand alone events focusing on various aspects of water management – including drinking water, wastewater and efficiency. By merging these events into one National Conference CWWA has created a unique event that merges all aspects of water management, providing amazing networking, opportunities for information exchange and innovation.

    Amsterdam International Water Week Conference

    All day
    2019.11.04-2019.11.05

    The AIWW supports a sustainable water environment by providing a platform to connect those who face challenges with those who can contribute to solutions, both in the public and private domain. It supports stakeholders in building practical solutions for progress on water issues. The main theme of the AIWW Conference 2019 is ‘Implementation of Integrated Solutions by cities, industries, utilities and financiers: from cases to bankable projects.’ At the AIWW Conference leading innovators from municipal operators, industrial system developers, utilities and production chain designers will discuss the ambitious task to improve water system management. Together with municipal and industrial leaders and investors they will rethink the institutional approach to water system management with special attention for the two overall AIWW Conference-themes: a circular water economy and climate change adaptation.

    Topics

    • Financial models for circular solutions
    • Thermal and kinetic energy and aquatic biomass solutions
    • Creating value out of wastewater
    • Renewing infrastructure for a circular approach
    • Financing models for Integrating Water and Resource Management
    • Resource recovery and local markets
    • Pollution pressure and smart water allocation
    • River basin approach and nature based solutions
    • Data management and co-creation
    • Smart operations and asset management
    • Artificial intelligence: new services & efficiency
    • Cyber security: how to keep our infrastructure secure?
    • Financing models for blue-green solutions
    • Inclusive city master plan: design, build, reuse, finance
    • Building more resilient communities
    • Resilient critical infrastructure

    Abstract

    Alteration of hydrological conditions in fluvial systems inevitably leads to changes in river morphology, riparian or riverbed vegetation and ecosystems. As literature shows, climate is one of controlling factor of the distribution of plant species. Rapid climate change leads to remarkable changes in the distribution and behavior of plants, contributing to modify the ecosystem equilibrium. Thus, riparian vegetation distribution could change in time and in space depending on the combination of factors affecting the settling and growth of vegetated elements. On one hand the presence of vegetation in rivers exerts an important ecological function and contributes to maintain suitable habitat; on the other hand vegetation and derived materials can be used for erosion control and slope protection to reduce risk events. Thus, the analysis of flow-vegetation interaction is important both to evaluating environmental processes such as sediment transport and mixing of transported quantities and to defining the role of vegetation in channel’s morphodynamics.

    IWA Biofilms: Biofilms & their interactions with surfaces

    All day
    2019.11.05-2019.11.08

    In this conference, we aim to provide a meeting point for scientists from the entire world to present their most recent data and to exchange novel information on basic and applied aspects of microbial biofilms, and their interactions with surfaces. Since this is the first time this conference is located in South America, we also expect to gather Latin-American scientists and industrial companies working on biofilm topics, by promoting the generation of future biofilm related activities and collaboration projects involving South American and world partners. We expect to include topics relevant to South America, such as mining, water sanitation, infrastructure, and health.

    Topics

    • Biofilms and interaction with surfaces (biocorrosion, biofouling, membranes, bioleaching, bio-electrochemical systems, biofilms in medical devices)
    • Water and wastewater treatment (wastewater, drinking water, and mining wastewater)
    • Biofilm modelling (metabolic, reactors)
    • Biofilm ecology (EPS, bioremediation, marine biofilms, drinking water distribution systems, sampling and quantification methodologies).

    3rd International M.S. Yalin Memorial Colloquium

    All day
    2019.11.06

    The​ “M.S. YALIN MEMORIAL COLLOQUIUM” (YMC) aims to create an environment for reflection and discussion of the state-of-the-art and challenges on selected topics pertinent to fluvial hydraulics, while generating opportunities for the establishment of connections between young and established researchers. The Colloquium, organized under the auspices of the IAHR Fluvial Hydraulics Committee, is held in memory of Professor M. Selim Yalin, widely known for his contributions in the areas of hydraulic physical modeling, sediment transport and river mechanics.
