The 3rd WaterEnergyNEXUS Conference
December 1, 2020 - December 5, 2020
The WaterEnergyNEXUS is one of the most important and priority issue to be resolved for both current and next generations.
The University of Sfax (Tunisia) in cooperation with Sanitary Environmental Engineering Division (SEED) of the University of Salerno (Italy), Advanced Institute of Water Industry at Kyungpook National University (Korea) and with The Energy and Resources Institute, TERI (India) is organizing the third edition of WaterEnergyNEXUS conference, that will be held in the island of Djerba (Tunisia) on 1-5 December 2020.
The first edition of WaterEnergyNEXUS was organized in Korea during the Asian International Water Week, one of the more relevant and strategic appointments in Asia for scientists and professionals who are working on the field of the water industry and sustainability. The second edition was organized in Salerno (Italy) in 2018.
This third edition of WaterEnergyNEXUS conference will provide an international platform to share and discuss key topics on such water issues with the presentation of nature-based solutions, advanced technologies and best practices with the support of experts invited as plenary and keynote speakers. An additional aim of this 2020 WaterEnergyNEXUSconference is to contribute to the overall goal of enhancing cooperation, integration and sustainable development in the Euro-Mediterranean region on critical topics of Water and Energy.
The WaterEnergyNEXUS series of conferences received the support of the UNESCO World Water Association Programme (WWAP) and the International Water Association (IWA) It is also under the patronage of several international scientific societies, associations and organizations. And, it enjoys the publishing partnership with Springer Nature.
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.
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).
