Location: Beijing
Organization: New York Institute of Technology (NYIT)

Scope

Leaders from government, industry, academia, and NGOs will convene to call attention to pressing crises in water management as the phrase "water is the new oil" is becoming a harsh reality with droughts, weather shifts, pollution, and population increases all posing a dire threat to the world's water resources. We believe that one way to address these challenges is through on-going collaboration; bringing people together to share ideas, technologies, information, and methodologies. This Water Management and Global Challenges conference does precisely that: act as a forum to discuss advances and innovations in management, research, technology, and policy affecting water-related challenges, ranging from ensuring public health and safe drinking water and food supply, to conserving precious water resources by energy producers and other industrial, commercial and residential end users.

Topics

The aim of this conference is to exchange ideas and advances in the field of Water Management and Conservation. The conference will provide a stage for scientists and engineers to present their research, original techniques, findings, and case studies. We welcome contributions in, but not limited to, the following areas:

Smart Water Management and Control
Water Data Management Platforms
Water Sensing and Monitoring
Hydrological Mapping
Water Information Systems
Geographical Information Systems (GIS) Applications for Water Systems
Climate Change and its Impact on Water Resources

Organizers

This conference is hosted by New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) and held in conjunction with the Environmental and Public Health Network for Chinese Students and Scholars (ENCSS), and several participants from government, industry and academe.
