Technical Program

The IWC has always been a strong educational conference. The IWC strives to present timely, relevant, non-commercial scientific information to help further educate an already-educated audience.

Attendees come to learn about the latest applications available in the industrial water treatment industry, educate themselves in current technology and applications through attendance in IWC workshops, and network heavily with their peers active in water treatment.

All papers presented at the IWC are carefully peer reviewed for quality and to ensure no commercial aspect is evident. Each Paper presentation at the IWC is followed by a Prepared Discussion–a thoroughly considered, different perspective on the topic, followed by an open floor discussion when all audience members and presenters can fully interact–ask questions, seek clarification, and raise alternative viewpoints. In essence–learn more!
