23 - 25 May 2011, Riverside, California, USA
Wessex Institute of Technology, UK
The sixth International Conference on Water Resources Management will present the more recent technological and scientific developments associated with the management of surface and sub-surface water resources. Numerous water-related conferences organised by the Wessex Institute of Technology have been successfully held in many locations throughout the world. Water Resources Management is one of the most important conferences in the series.
The importance of this meeting cannot be over-emphasised as water increasingly becomes a precious resource on which the well-being of future generations depends. Issues of water quality, quantity, management and planning, as well as other related topics, are essential to the future of the world population.
Water resources are under extreme pressure today all over the world. The resulting problems have given rise to many activities which reflect growing concern about them and the importance accorded to their sustainable management.
The meeting aims to bring together engineers, scientists and other professionals from many different countries, involved in research and development activities in a wide range of water resources and management topics.
The first conference on Water Resources Management was held in Halkidiki, Greece in 2001, the second in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria (2003), the third in the Algarve, Portugal (2005), the fourth in Kos, Greece (2007) and the fifth in Malta (2009).
