The theme of the 2nd Disinfection and Disinfection By-Products Conference is How academia and industry work together to make water better. Our meeting activities reflect three elements: Disinfection in what we hope to share, both in the new progress of disinfection process, reagent and instrument, and in new discovery on pathogen occurrence and inactivation mechanism which can guide the disinfection process development; Disinfection By-Products (DBPs) in the hotspots about the regulated and the emerging DBPs, including the occurrence, formation pathways, precursors, and control measures; Public Health Issues including the acute and severe water-borne diseases which disinfection is designed to address, and the chronic toxicity of DBPs which may lead to the increase of cancer and adverse birth outcomes.
These important and attractive topics were selected by the programme committee members. About 40 famous scientists, engineers and public health researchers from all over the world accepted the invitation to contribute their intelligence. We also have an organizing committee dominantly from the local to serve this conference.
As one of the most attractive merits for a successful conference, the plenary speech is very important issue to us. The programme committee members nominated dozens of world leading scientists and distinguished engineers and selected 12 plenary speakers for this conference.


  • Disinfection: disinfectants, processes, facilities
  • Disinfection By-products: analysis, chemistry and control
  • Pathogen: monitoring, inactivation, biofilm
  • Toxicology
  • Epidemiology
  • Regulation and policy
