Sessions and Tracks

Track 1: Water, Environment and Health 

Conference Image

Globally, 23% of all deaths and 26% of deaths among children under age 5 are due to unavoidable environmental factors. All these factors are manifold and far reaching. They include: Exposure to hazardous substances in the air, water, soil, and food, natural and technological disasters. These interactions affect quality of life, years of healthy life lived, and health disparities. Poor environmental quality has its greatest impact on people whose health status is already at risk. Therefore, environmental health must address the societal and environmental factors that increase the likelihood of exposure and health diseases.

Track 2: Urbanization and Water Quality

Conference Image

Urban populations interact with their environment. Urban people change their environment through their consumption of food, energy, water, and land. And in turn, the polluted urban environment affects the health and quality of life of the urban population. Urbanization has negative consequences on health due mainly to pollution and overcrowded living conditions. It can also put added pressure on food supply systems. The pressures of urban living may lead to crime and other consequences of social deprivation.

  • Effects on Water Resources, Water Cycle and Water Quality
  • Urban Water Management
  • Urban Stormwater Infiltration Systems
  • Urbanization Causes Water Scarcity
  • Smart Cities and Urban Water Supply Management

Track 3: Water and Climate

Conference Image

Climate change intensifies this cycle because as air temperatures increase, more water evaporates into the air. Warmer air can hold more water vapor, which can lead to more intense rainstorms, causing major problems like extreme flooding in coastal communities around the world.

  • Climate Impacts on Water Resources and Water Crisis
  • Coastal Risk Management in a Changing Climate
  • Climate Change Consequences
  • Challenges for Atmospheric Research
  • Assessing and Managing Coastal Flood Risk

Track 4: Water: Sequel on Agriculture and Soil

Conference Image

Improperly managed agricultural activities may impact surface water by contributing nutrients, pesticides, sediment, and bacteria, or by altering stream flow. Fertilizer and pesticide use, tillage, irrigation, and tile drainage can affect water quality and hydrology. However, agriculture is both cause and victim of water pollution. It is a cause through its discharge of pollutants and sediment to surface and/or groundwater, through net loss of soil by poor agricultural practices, and through salinization and waterlogging of irrigated land.

  • Biochar Adaptation
  • Retention, Release and Transport in Soils/Groundwater
  • Biodiversity of Food and Agriculture
  • Impacts and Adaptation in the Agricultural Sector
  • Colloidal Interactions of Nanoparticles with Water, Sediment, Soils
  • Soil Fertility and Biogeochemistry

Track 5: Environmental Hydraulics and Hydrology

Conference Image

Hydraulics and Hydrology are the key disciplines that allow for tackling the technological issues associated to the need for efficient usage of water and protection against related hazards. They contextualize the fundamental sciences of fluid mechanics, hydrodynamics and atmospheric physics for the purpose of achieving water-related technological advancements with positive impacts on human communities.

  • Advanced Models in Turbulence, Heat Transfer and Mass Transfer
  • Hydrologic Risk and Uncertainty
  • Novel Monitoring Techniques and Analytical Approaches in Hydroecology
  • Waves and Currents
  • Fluid Mechanics

Track 6: Water and Energy

Conference Image

Water energy resources include hydroelectric power from lakes and rivers, ocean energy in its various forms, and energy technologies that take advantage of saline water. Hydropower makes use of the kinetic energy water gains when it drops in elevation. Typically, water dammed in a lake or reservoir is released through turbines and generators to produce electricity, Hydropower has been a staple of electricity since the beginnings of the electric age. However, very little of this potential is currently slated for development.

  • High Energy Costs Vulnerability
  • Emissions of Greenhouse Gas
  • Energy Production from Urban Water Cycle

Track 7: Microplastics as Emerging Contaminants

Conference Image

Microplastics come from a variety of sources, including from larger plastic debris that degrades into smaller and smaller pieces. In addition, microbeads, a type of microplastic, are very tiny pieces of manufactured polyethylene plastic that are added as exfoliates to health and beauty products, such as some cleansers and toothpastes. These tiny particles easily pass through water filtration systems and end up in the ocean and Great Lakes, posing a potential threat to aquatic life.

  • Fate and Effects in Marine and Freshwater Systems
  • Effects of Emerging Contaminants in Tropical Environment

Track 8: Interaction with Polyfluoroalkyl Substances

Conference Image

Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) are a class of man-made chemicals. These chemicals are used in several types of consumer products, such as carpets, clothing, fabrics for furniture, paper packing for food, firefighting foam, and other materials, such as cookware, that are resistant to water, grease, or stains. Therefore, many people have been exposed to PFAS and have these chemicals in their blood from non-drinking water sources. It affects growth, learning, and behavior of infants and older children, lower a woman’s chance of getting pregnant, interfere with the body’s natural hormones, increase cholesterol levels, affect the immune system, increase the risk of cancer etc.

  • Impacts on environment and human health
  • Retention, release and transport in soils/ groundwater
  • PFASs interactions with soils and sediments

Track 9: Industrial Wastewater Management

Conference Image

Industrial Water treatment is used to accumulate most water-based industrial processes, such as heating, cooling, processing, cleaning, and rinsing so that operating costs and risks are reduced. Water treatment is also engaged to improve the quality of water contacting the manufactured product such as semiconductors, or can be part of the product e.g. beverages, pharmaceuticals, etc. In these cases, poor water treatment can root to defective products.

Track 10: Water Adsorption

Conference Image

Adsorption is one of the most systematic processes of advanced waste water treatment technology, which industry and academic researchers widely engaged for the removal of various pollutants. Activated carbon is one of the most widely investigated adsorbent in water treatment process. In recent years, the “adsorption” process has become more accepted as “Bio sorption” which uses biomaterials as the adsorbent, for contaminated water treatment. Magnetic adsorbents are an attractive solution for metallic and dye pollutants, particularly due to the simple magnetic separation process.

  • Low Cost Adsorbents
  • Batch and Column Experiment
  • Heat Pump System

Track 11: Water Microbiology

Conference Image

Water microbiology is the science that deals with microscopic living organisms in fresh or salt water systems. While aquatic microbiology can encompass all microorganisms, including microscopic plants and animals, it more commonly refers to the study of bacteria, viruses, and fungi and their relation to other organisms in the aquatic environment. Bacteria, viruses, and fungi are widely distributed throughout aquatic environments. They can be found in fresh water rivers, lakes, and streams, in the surface waters and sediments of the world's oceans, and even in hot springs. They have even been found supporting diverse communities at hydrothermal vents in the depths of the oceans. Humans have taken advantage of the role these microorganisms play in nutrient cycles. At sewage treatment plants, microscopic bacteria are cultured and then used to break down human wastes. However, in addition to the beneficial uses of some aquatic microorganisms, others may cause problems for people because they are pathogens, which can cause serious diseases. For example, viruses such as Salmonella typhi, S. paratyphoid, and the Norwalk virus are found in water contaminated by sewage can cause illness. Fecal coliform (E. coli) bacteria and Enterococcus bacteria are two types of microorganisms that are used to indicate the presence of disease causing microorganisms in aquatic environments.
