North Queensland Regional Conference 2019

North Queensland Regional Conference 2019
Call for papers now open for the 2019 North QLD Regional Conference.

Water – Delivering Health, Amenity and Prosperity
Wednesday 14th– Thursday 15th August 2019 
The Ville Resort, Townsville

The Australian Water Association’s Queensland Branch would like to invite you to submit a paper for this exciting conference which will focus on the theme of “Water – Delivering Health, Amenity and Prosperity”. 
The Committee plans to present a broad range of presentations related to the water industry and the vital services it provides to the North Queensland community and surrounding environment to enable health, amenity and prosperity.

Through tourism and industry, the North Queensland region is a major contributor to the Queensland economy. These vital industries and the accompanying workforce require fundamental services that make the whole North Queensland region a great place to live and invest. To support this, the water industry must do more than just provide clean drinking water and must be fully engaged with the community to deliver services that provide a foundation for liveability.

The conference will continue to provide the strong technical and social direction that has become synonymous with the event in previous years. Papers and non-plenary sessions will provide insights into the emerging trends and challenges in the region – from high-tech solutions to low-cost, minimalist ideas. Your standard operating procedure could be the solution to somebody else’s challenge.

The series of North Queensland Regional Conferences have been very successful over the years, with over 130 people attending recent regional conferences.

Abstracts must be submitted by Friday 29 March 2019.
