The WateReuse Research Foundations has issued a call for papers for its 17th Annual Water Reuse & Desalination Research Conference on 6‑7 May 2013 in Phoenix, Arizona.

Abstracts need to be submitted to the foundation’s website by 3 December 2012.

The Foundation’s Research Conference provides an opportunity for the water reuse and desalination communities to hear and see presentations by researchers on the latest results of ongoing research. The conference provides a forum for water reuse and desalination research professionals to interact, network, and discuss current and future research needs and trends.

The Foundation’s Conference Planning Committee will select abstracts with the goal of forming a program to highlight “cutting edge” research on topics such as potable reuse, concentrate management, the energy-water nexus, pharmaceuticals and personal care products, and health effects. Abstracts not selected for the program may be selected as poster presenters.
