Annual leading-edge conferences on water treatment technology and sustainable urban water management are being initiated.

More information on IWA events as well as information on how to get your own conference supported by IWA can be found here and on the IWA webpage under "events". Note that events being organised in Belgium need the formal approval of the B-IWA board.

Specialist Groups

IWA Specialist groups represent the core vehicle for issue-based interaction on scientific, technical and management topics. The specialist groups facilitate collaboration and product generation, including conferences and publications.

The specialist groups within IWA are self-managed and include groups covering all important topics in the water management sector. Spread across IWA's membership in more than 130 countries, IWA's specialist groups are an exceptionally effective means of international networking, sharing information and skills and making good professional and business contacts.

Every IWA member can join up to 5 specialist groups and each group has its own program of conferences and other meetings and a regular newsletter or web-based discussion forum.

Please note that in order to be able to see the newsletters and membership listings for each group and to participate in the discussion fora, you need to log onto the area in the website using your IWA personal ID number.
