SA STATE CONFERENCE 2018 - LEADERSHIP IN WATER

SA STATE CONFERENCE 2018 - LEADERSHIP IN WATER
***CALL FOR PAPERS NOW OPEN!***

SA STATE CONFERENCE 2018 - LEADERSHIP IN WATER
This year’s South Australian State Conference will showcase the many ways in which South Australian water sector practitioners are leaders - and examine leadership challenges and needs for the sector moving forward. 

The 2018 Conference will be held in the historic Science Exchange, in Adelaide's CBD.

CALL FOR PAPERS
The Association's South Australian Branch are now calling for abstract submissions under the theme Leadership in Water.  We want to explore current and emerging issues that you face as water sector practitioners - and the different types of leadership needed to address these issues. Abstracts may be leadership stories from today, or critical analyses of future leadership needs. 

Leadership is not defined by personal skills alone, but also encompasses leadership in technology, resources and governance. Abstracts could address leadership in one or more of the following areas:
* Leadership skills and behaviours
* Political and governmental leadership
* Thought leadership
* Cutting edge science, technology and innovation
* Champions and grassroots community initiatives
* Governance
* Effective organisations
* Collaboration 
 
SUBMITTING YOUR ABSTRACT
Short abstracts, using the AWA Abstract Template (download below), are due by 5pm Tuesday 12 June.

Authors whose abstracts are accepted to the conference must then submit an extended abstract, including a short presenter biography, conforming to the AWA Extended Abstract Template (download below), by 5pm Monday 6 August 2018.

Speakers will need to register for the conference, at the discount speaker rate, by 5pm Friday 17 August.

All presenters will be required to provide a copy of their presentation, and paper if applicable, by 5pm Monday 10 September for inclusion on the Australian Water Association’s website for delegates to download.

At the conference on Friday 21 September, authors, or their nominated presenter, will be given approximately 20 minutes to speak to the abstract.
