Call for Papers – VicWater Annual Conference

To enable the development of the program we are inviting papers that explore the conference theme: MICRO SOLUTIONS FOR MACRO PROBLEMS

The 2017 VicWater Annual Conference will explore the way that local, specific and targeted responses can provide a cumulative macro solution. It is all too easy to become daunted by the scale of some of these macro challenges, but the aggregated impact of micro solutions can be significant and by focusing on these micro solutions the macro problems don’t seem so big.
Micro solutions could range across areas such as technological innovation, artificial intelligence, new ways of engaging with and involving customers in decision making, better ways of making use of customer data, low tech solutions for high tech problems, use of Nano technologies and robotics, better use of data – customers and performance.

The papers chosen to be included on the Conference program will articulate, at a broad level, an understanding of the Victorian water sector and its current priorities and how the information being presented can be seen and used through that lens within the sector.

Please download the brochure below for more information on focus area, selection criteria and conference audience.

Interested persons who would like to present a paper at this year’s VicWater Annual Conference are invited to submit a one page abstract to us by Friday 21 April 2017 marked to the attention of Tony Wright, Chief Executive Officer.
