First Announcement and Call for Papers | International Conference on Drinking Water Safety and Optimal Distribution in Urban Agglomerations: The 1st Forum of Water Safety Innovation Center of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area
Cities are important spatial carriers of human production and life, and water is an important resource to support urban economic development. In recent years, with coordination and progress in drinking water protection, ecological restoration, drinking water purification, sponge city construction in many cities, the contradiction between urban water resources supplies and demand has been alleviated, and urban water security has been improved.
2021 is the first year of the implementation of the "China 14th Five-Year Plan". During the "14th Five-Year Plan" period, a national water network with integrated functions including hazard prevention and control, water resources allocation and water ecology protection will be built. Moreover, to enhance the national water security, it is planned to improve the water conservancy infrastructure system, strengthen water source restoration, and increase the protection and comprehensive management of key rivers and lakes.
Ensuring drinking water safety and optimal distribution in urban agglomerations is not only a crucial task in the protection of the water ecological system, but also guarantees safe and high-quality drinking water in the context of climate change and other environmental challenges. This involves the whole industrial chain of water environment, upstream and downstream industries and all stakeholders to joint and cooperate.
To achieve this goal, Guangdong Water Co., Ltd. and Harbin Institute of Technology plan to organize the International Conference on Drinking Water Safety and Optimal Distribution in Urban Agglomerations: the 1st Forum of Water Safety Innovation Center of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area in September 2021 in Shenzhen. Academicians such as Ma Jun and a group of well-known experts at home and abroad will be invited as keynote speakers. This conference will serve as a comprehensive public communication and exhibition platform for governments, universities, institutes, water supply and environmental protection industries.
The conference programme is framed with plenary session, thematic sessions, Q&A, panel discussion, and technical tour. This conference aims to have an in-depth analysis and address on topics of aquatic ecology and water source protection, safe drinking water supply and optimal distribution, with a specific focus on sustainable water utilization and drinking water safety in urban agglomerations.
Topics of papers should be related to the three main themes of this conference: (1) Ecological protection and restoration of water bodies in urban agglomerations; (2) Drinking water safety in urban agglomerations; (3) Design of optimal water distribution systems in urban agglomerations. Selected papers will be published in the conference proceedings, and some of them will be published in China Water and Wastewater. Papers are open for submission now. All individuals and entities including government, universities, research institutes, water utilities, design institutes, general contractors, and product suppliers in the field of water are welcome to contribute to and participate in the conference.
