2021 Pacific Water Conference Call for Abstracts

Individuals desiring to present a paper at the 2021 Pacific Water Conference must submit an abstract, limited to 2,500 characters or less (with spaces), describing their presentation in sufficient detail to allow evaluation of the proposed topic. Presentations will be in 45 minute blocks - 30 minutes for presentation and 15 minutes of questions and answers. This conference will address a wide variety of topics related to the water and wastewater industry. All abstracts will be reviewed and selected on: Originality, Technical Content, and Quality.

Demonstration Track

In addition to the main conference presentations, the Demonstration Track will feature presentations covering a physical product or process, particularly something that would benefit a wide-range of operators. Please note that the purpose of these presentations is NOT to give a direct sales pitch for a specific product. Rather, these sessions are meant to provide a more interactive, hands-on, informal session to describe a generic piece of equipment that your company happens to provide. This track will be held within the exhibit hall in a dedicated space. A large TV (approx. 65”), laptop, and microphone will be provided for presentation material. Presentations will be in 45 minute blocks - 30 minutes for presentation and 15 minutes of questions and answers.

Please respond to this Call for Abstracts and indicate if your submission is for a Demonstration Track.

More information and the form can be downloaded HERE. Please email your abstract and/or questions to the Technical Program Chairs: or contact: Lance Lam (808) 203-2681.
