Instructions for Authors

CCWI 2019 welcomes submissions from all areas with relevance to computing and control in the water industry and especially the emerging WATER 4.0 agenda. Submissions will be reviewed by the committees and accepted extended abstracts will be classified into oral presentations and posters. For both, a two-page abstract will be required. Proceedings with the extended abstracts will be distributed and selected authors will be invited to submit papers for a special issue in the Urban Water Journal.

A prize will be awarded to the best extended abstract from an Early Career Researcher (PhD student)  - further details to follow.

A prize will also be awarded to the best poster.  The panel will judge all posters on their scientific contribution, relevance for practice, design/presentation and how much attention they attracted during the poster session.

Extended Abstracts

Extended abstracts should be prepared in Word, using the CCWI 2019 template. This template has been designed with specific styles and formats embedded, to ensure consistency across all authors - incorrectly formatted submissions will not be accepted. When submitting your abstract, please rename the template file with the surname of the first author (and a number if submitting multiple abstracts (e.g. 'Smith01', 'Smith02').


Extended abstracts must be written in English and should not exceed two pages, including figures, tables and references. A 300 word summary, which will be printed in the conference programme, must also be provided during the submission process. This does not need to be repeated in the extended abstract.

Submission opens on 8th February 2019 and extended abstracts must be received by 12th April 2019. Notification of acceptance and classification will be provided by 7th June 2019.

If you have any queries about the extended abstract preparation and submission process, please contact the CCWI Secretariat.
