Call for Reviewers for the World Water Congress & Exhibition 2024

The International Water Association (IWA) will be hosting the World Water Congress & Exhibition (WWCE) 2024 in Toronto, Canada on 11-15 August 2024. The 2024 edition in Toronto will provide a showcase for latest developments that can contribute on key agendas, from the need for action on climate change adaptation and mitigation, to progress on the circular economy and resource recovery, and the widespread application of digital technologies. The 2024 edition will present opportunities for innovation and action that together will help secure progress on water, especially on global action for the UN SDGs.

With the deadline for proposals approaching on 27 October 2023, preparations are well underway for one of the biggest events in the water sector, with water professionals from more than 100 countries expected to be present at this prestigious event. Showcasing the experience and expertise of Canada and the wider North America region, the WWCE will bring together leading researchers and practitioners from around the world.

On behalf of the IWA Programme Committee, we are calling for expert reviewers to assist in evaluating submitted proposals. We invite IWA members, as well as wider experts in water science and management, to apply to become a reviewer. 

As a reviewer, you will be responsible for evaluating proposals submitted to the Congress and providing feedback to the authors. Reviewers will assess proposals for either platform or poster presentations at the Congress. These proposals each consist of a maximum of two A4 pages of text plus up to two A4 pages of supporting figures, tables and references. The reviewing process will take place from 6 November 2023 to 22 December 2023.

Your expertise and insights will help to shape the programme and ensure high-quality content. Reviewers will also benefit from official acknowledgment in the final printed materials distributed to all delegates attending the Congress. Upon request, we can also provide a certificate confirming that you have been a reviewer for the Congress. 

If you are interested in becoming a reviewer, please complete the online application form.

We look forward to your participation in this important event and appreciate your valuable contribution to the global water sector.
