Welcome from the Chairman of the organising committee
Welcome to Norway for the EWA conference on Water management in cold climates (WMCC), a forum where the water professionals from colder climates will be sharing their challenges and solutions for the first time. Water resources management and especially the water and wastewater treatment in colder climates have specific challenges compared with warmer climates, and many of these will become even more complicated with impacts from Climate Change. Thus we look forward to have a fruitful dialogue among engaged water researchers, suppliers and utility personnel on this important theme, which could be the start of a regular forum.
The WMCC conference will be held back-to-back with the IWA biennial particle separation conference in Oslo 22-24 June 2016. After three days filled with scientific sessions, technical tours and visits to unique sites to experience the powerful nature in the exotic archipelago of Spitsbergen, we are certain that the WMCC conference will create a unique memory with each and every participant. We encourage you to participate in both events – in Oslo and in Spitsbergen- to get the best out of your visit to Norway.
