Call for Reviewers

On behalf of the IWA Programme Committee, we are calling for expert reviewers to assist in evaluating submitted proposals. We invite IWA members, as well as wider experts in water science and management, to apply to become a reviewer.

As a reviewer, you will be responsible for evaluating proposals submitted to the Congress and providing feedback to the authors. Reviewers will assess proposals for either platform or poster presentations at the Congress. These proposals each consist of a maximum of two A4 pages of text plus up to two A4 pages of supporting figures, tables and references. The reviewing process will take place from 6 November 2023 to 22 December 2023.

Your expertise and insights will help to shape the programme and ensure high-quality content. Reviewers will also benefit from official acknowledgment in the final printed materials distributed to all delegates attending the Congress. Upon request, we can also provide a certificate confirming that you have been a reviewer for the Congress. 

If you are interested in becoming a reviewer, please complete the online application form.

We look forward to your participation in this important event and appreciate your valuable contribution to the global water sector.
