Welcome to Oman’s International Conference on Water Engineering and Management of Water Resources (OICWE2020)
Towards a Sustainable Water Future

The conference will be held in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman on 9-11 November 2021 at the Military Technological College (MTC)

Sustainable water future is a global concern and is of particular importance where water resources are scarce. Sustainable water future can only be achieved by responsible management of water resources with a focus on enhancing the environment. Ensuring a clean and safe water supply relies on the responsible management of water resources. National and international water suppliers spend billions each year in order to enhance the infrastructure for water supply and maximize the utilization of water resources.

This conference provides an interesting opportunity to share ideas, discuss new technology, and explore innovative techniques and present the latest research result with international colleagues, academics, engineers, policymakers and government organizations.

The conference will cover a wide range of topics at the heart of water engineering and management of water resources, including treatment, resources management, distribution systems, water losses, sustainability, energy efficiency, reclamation, recycling, reuse, regulations, policies, costs, decision making, modelling, design, maintenance and construction of water infrastructure.

The Conference

The conference is organised by the Department of Civil Engineering and Quantity Surveying, at MTC, Oman. It provides an excellent platform to exchange both scientific and practical information in a pleasant atmosphere.

Papers are peer-reviewed and the Proceedings will be published in a high-quality book. It is likely that best papers could also be published in a special issue of an international Journal.

High profile organisations are sponsoring and supporting the conference. Most notably the institution of Civil Engineers (ICE, UK) and Oman Society of Engineers (OSE). In addition, a wide international interest is expected.

The conference runs over 3 days, with a conference dinner included in the conference fee.  The student rate is fully inclusive of all lunches and proceedings on CD only. Full delegate and author rates include a printed hard copy of the Proceedings, all lunches, and the conference dinner.
