A deadline of 30 June 2012 has been set for abstracts for the eighth in the series of conferences on Membranes in Drinking & Industrial Water Production, which will take place at Leeuwarden in the Netherlands on 10‑12 September 2012.

Organised by the European Desalination Society and the Wetsus Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Water Technology, the conference will give an overview of the most recent developments in membrane technology.

This three-day event will bring together research scientists, engineers, managers and operators from water supply and wastewater treatment companies, industries, government departments, consulting firms, research institutes and universities.

The theme of the conference includes the treatment of groundwater, river, lake, sea and filter backwash water, as well as industrial and domestic wastewaters with membrane processes like reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, ultrafiltration, microfiltration and electrodialysis.
