“Synergy through engineering”

We need to adapt and be original with all the challenges facing our industry today, be it economic, social, environmental or political. IMESA jointly with IAWEES is calling for Abstracts typically falling within the below broad areas to consider for the 2020 Joint International Conference.

The title and topic of both the Oral and Poster presentations will be evaluated for innovation, thought, leadership, business value and interest and conformance to the Conference theme. Only the best will be selected to go to the next phase.

 .

* NOTE *

Oral presentations require a full paper submission, while Poster presentations will only be evaluated and selected based on the abstract submitted. The Technical Advisory Committee, at their own discretion, could select a limited number of poster presentations to submit a full paper, which will be following all three stages of the Call for Papers process with a possibility of the full paper being published in the conference proceedings magazine.

Poster presenters must be available to defend their research on Thursday, 29 October 2020 from 14h00 till 16h00 and will be required to register for the day, unless the presenter forms part of the participating academic institutions, in which case attendance for the afternoon session will be at no cost.
