Call For Papers, Posters and Presenters
The organizers invite methodological contributions and empirical case studies that promote greater integration of water, wastewater, and stormwater flows within industrial and urban watersheds. Technical sessions, to be held on Saturday, November 1, 2003 will be organized around the papers submitted.

Three information formats are invited:
• Posters
• Technical Presentations (with accompanying papers)
• Proposals for professional development courses

Pertaining to the following thematic tracks
(specify to which your contribution applies):
• Planning Integrated Strategies and Design
Presentations on successful strategy, planning and the spatial organization of the urban built environment for optimal water conservation and reuse
• Systems, Technologies and Tools
Presentations on a wide variety of specific water-reuse tools and ways to integrate them
• Policy, Marketing and Economics
Presentations on policies, marketing and economic incentives for water reuse

Relevant topics include, but are not strictly limited to:

• Ecological and engineering-based treatment technologies and designs (water, wastewater and stormwater) and their application to industrial, urban and environmental water reuse systems
• Ecological products and services in chemical process design
• Process (industrial and domestic) designs for water conservation, waste minimization, and zero discharge
• Cost and performance comparisons between technological and design alternatives
• Modeling tools and decision support for TMDL and waste load allocation
• Life-cycle analysis, material and energy flow analysis
• Incorporating environmental sustainability into industrial and urban development
• Decision support systems
• Chemical engineering and landscape architecture in ecological engineering and industrial ecology
• Case studies of successful industrial, agricultural, urban and environmental water reuse program
How to Submit
Abstracts, approximately 300 to 500 words in length, plus a short accompanying biographical description, CV or resume,
should be sent to
[ bkenet@gsd.harvard.edu ]
