EIP Annual Conference September 26th and 28th 2017. Workshop "SMART WATER MONITORING"

EIP Annual Conference September 26th and 28th 2017. Workshop "SMART WATER MONITORING"

Dear all,

Ctrl+Swan Action Group invite you to the EIP Annual Conference 2017 that will be held in Porto (Portugal) on September 26th and 28th 2017.

During the Conference Ctrl+SWAN Action Group in collaboration with the H2020 PROTEUS project and the Ict4Water cluster will co-organize a dedicated workshop “Smart Water monitoring: low-cost sensors solutions for high efficiency water monitoring  networks”  on 26 September 2017 from 14:30 to 18:00

Monitoring water is more and more crucial and there is a growing demand for cost-effective solutions to control key parameters for our everyday life (e.g. drinkable water) for the environment control (e.g. climate change) or for sustaining or developing importanteconomies which depend on water (e.g. water utility, aquaculture, blue economy, etc). However sensors are still too expensive and potential of data are under exploited. There is therefore a need for R&D in reducing the costs of sensors also combined with advanced use of innovative SW and (big) data/cloud techniques.
The workshop will present the status of current R&D activities on innovative sensors and explore all future applications that such new and affordable sensors can offer. Disruptive technologies, trends for low-cost monitoring solutions, (CNT, MEMS), new methodologies, modelling, sensors and devices will be presented. Topics centre around “from Water to Data” will complement the discussion.

Crtl+SWAN AG "Workshop Smart Water Monitoring" Room: Miragaia Hall 26 September 2017 14:30-18:00


Some side events occupy the same room because they will be separated by partitions. All these rooms are located on the second floor of Alfândega Porto Congress Centre http://www.ccalfandegaporto.com/en/spaces/miragaia-s-joao-halls    /  http://www.ccalfandegaporto.com/en/location . Each session will be duly identified with a panel containing the name of the side event, in order to properly guide the participants.
