In addition, presenters are welcome to submit their paper to the Journal of Water Reuse and Desalination or Water Science & Technology.

Use of PowerPoint is strongly recommended for the Conference. Keep it simple – and large. Please use font sizes of at least 28 points. Visual aids used in your PowerPoint should not duplicate the spoken information, but should be used to visually strengthen your presentation.
We ask all speakers to use the IWA Conference Introductory Slide at the start of your PowerPoint presentation to create consistency among all speaker at the conference.
The IWA Conference Introductory Slide can be found here.
PowerPoint presentations must be uploaded to the WateReuse FTP site no later than July 10, 2017. When uploading your presentation to the FTP site, please save your file with your Name and Session Number.
International System of Units (SI Units)
We encourage all speakers to use the International System of Units (SI Units) in all written and PowerPoint materials for the 11th IWA International Conference. By adhering to this commonly agreed set of International Units, it will provide comprehension, reliability and consistency across the board and will help us avoid the potential for confusion using different units of measurements.
Please use the Discussion Paper published in the WRSG Newsletter, describing the practical use of the International System of Units, for your reference when preparing your Technical Papers and PowerPoint Presentations.
Each meeting room will be equipped with a laptop computer and an LCD projector. The laptop computer will include Windows and PowerPoint. Make sure your computer presentation is compatible with the available software. The meeting rooms will also be set up with a head table for all of the speakers, a standing podium, and one podium microphone. Other audio visual needs may be requested on the Speaker Form you fill out online.
In order to participate as a speaker at the 11th IWA International Conference, you are required to register for the conference. Speakers need to register by March 27, 2017. Speakers who fail to register by this date, will be removed from the program.
