Important Notice

The 3rd edition of WaterEnergyNEXUS will take place as scheduled and we are proceeding with all plans to convene the meeting.

However, from now until the conference days, no one can predict the worldwide development and spread of coronavirus and how long this situation will last. That is why, WaterEnergyNEXUS board decided to provide the possibility of presenting online to those who prefer not to attend the conference in person.

Interested authors are encouraged to submit an abstract of their presentation and to leave the decision (deadline: 30 September 2020) as to whether to attend the conference and to present onsite or just online. More details about the “online presentation” feature will be provided after notification of acceptances.

Plan B:

If the risk associated with the spread of coronavirus will continue after this summer, we’ll decide before the deadline for online registration (30 September 2020) about the possibility of organizing online the full conference or to postpone it to Spring 2021. In all cases, we’ll inform you about our decision before the deadline for online registration (i.e. 2 months before your trip to Djerba).
