AWRA and the Water Research Center at Tel Aviv University are pleased to announce a joint international conference “Cutting Edge Solutions to Wicked Water Problems,” to be hosted by Tel Aviv University in Tel Aviv, Israel, September 10-11, 2017.

Conference Co-Chairs Sharon Megdal, director of the Water Resources Research Center at The University of Arizona and Professor Dror Avisar, director of the Water Research Center, School of Earth Sciences at Tel Aviv University, invite all interested to submit abstracts for oral presentation consideration. Deadline for abstract submission is April 17, 2017.

The focus of this two-day conference (see topics) is to present scientific results and to demonstrate real-world experiences on innovative research about, and workable solutions to, various global water problems. Both local and international participants will benefit from this conference’s dialogue on developing ways to address and avoid water crises due to an imbalance between water supply and demand, changing climate, population growth, urbanization, water scarcity and water quality problems.

Why come to Israel for this conference?

Located in a semi-arid region characterized by chronic water scarcity, Israel has become a global leader in developing and applying innovative water solutions and technologies. Tel Aviv provides an ideal location for exchanging information, knowledge and data among researchers, practitioners, and water officials. In addition, conference attendees have the option of attending WATEC 2017, Israel’s biennial Water Technology and Environmental Control Exhibition & Conference, which will be held in Tel Aviv immediately following this conference.
