20th International Water Mist Conference (IWMC)


The 20th International Water Mist Conference (IWMC) will take place in Warsaw, Poland, on 7th and 8th October 2020. The conference will be organized by the International Water Mist Association (IWMA).

In 2020, the organizers would like to focus on the eco-friendliness of the technology (and would solicit especially abstracts with an affinity to that subject to at least a certain extent).

The call for papers was released on 15th January and until 15th May potential speakers can hand in their submissions.

The call for papers as well as the abstract template are available from the IWMA webpage»

The tabletops for the exhibition, which will run alongside the conference, can now be booked. And again, the form to apply for a tabletop (i.e. become a sponsor) can be downloaded here»

For those who would like to simply support IWMA in promoting the conference, there is a free of charge opportunity to become honorary sponsor.

On 15th May, the conference webpage, where delegates can book their ticket and which will summarize all necessary information on hotel booking, directions etc., will be activated.
