The conference will address advances in seawater and brackish water desalination and their strong relation to new technologies and process intensification strategy. Water stress is becoming a major problem worldwide which negatively affects the overall quality of life and industrial development. Reclamation and reuse of purified sea-brackish and wastewater represents an important part of the water supply in many areas of the world, particularly in Europe, the U.S., Australia and Japan. The reclaimed/reused water can help meet the increasing municipal, industrial, and agricultural demands for water. Water production, water treatments and water distributions can be completely redesigned in order to alleviate water shortages in modern, advanced city planning. Topics such as Integrated and hybrid water purification technologies, Innovative desalination operations, and Future water planning will be featured and industrial contributions will be emphasized. There will be discussion on the existing limits of current water treatment technologies and future possible developments in new and non-traditional areas interfacing environment, water distribution systems, etc. The conference will provide an excellent forum for scientists and technologists in all aspects of water desalination to exchange their ideas and experiences and to update their knowledge of latest developments and future strategies in the various aspects of water desalination.
