Call for Papers

SUBMISSION DUE DATE: FRIDAY, 27 SEPTEMBER 2019

Before you start

Please carefully read the Submission Guide below before proceeding to the Submission Portal.

 

The theme for Ozwater’20 is Thirst for Action and there are eleven key themes that submissions are encouraged to address:

THEME 1:    EXCELLENCE IN OPERATIONS AND ASSET MANAGEMENT

THEME 2:    ACHIEVING SUSTAINABLE AND THRIVING COMMUNITIES

THEME 3:    GOVERNANCE CHALLENGES & SOLUTIONS

THEME 4:    ENGAGING & WORKING WITH CUSTOMERS

THEME 5:    RURAL, REMOTE AND REGIONAL WATER

THEME 6:    DIVERSITY, INCLUSION & EQUITY

THEME 7:    INDUSTRY SAFETY & WELLBEING

THEME 8:    PUBLIC HEALTH 

THEME 9:    RESILIENCE & WATER SECURITY

THEME 10:  ACHIEVING A CIRCULAR ECONOMY

THEME 11:  WILDCARD

 

Each year we get a few submissions that don't quite fit under any of the sub-themes, which is why we've come up with a Wildcard category. It's submissions like these that remind us of the need to think outside the box to solve our water challenges.

New to the submission process for last year was the video pitch. While some submissions are more suited to an extended abstract or case study template, the video pitch allows the industry to determine the best platform to communicate their message, particularly if their focus is on marketing campaigns, community engagement programs, or customer projects. If the video pitch results in program acceptance, a case study or paper is then required.
