Call for Abstracts

The 18th World Lake Conference Organizing Committee invites you to submit abstracts to be part of its 2021 Virtual edition. Abstract Submission is open until September 17th, 2021 (GTM-5)

The World Lake Conference was designed to be a global forum for discussing a wide range of academic and non-academic topics related to the management of lakes and their basins for the sustainable use of their life-supporting ecosystem services. They include scientific/technical/practical and socio-economic/governance/cultural aspects, as well as concerns of the public (civil society) and the environment.

Accordingly, the 18th World Lake Conference Organizing Committee is inviting to all public to submit your work related with a wide range of lake basin-related problems and solutions, to be considered as oral or poster presentations. Submissions will be reviewed by the conference committee, and results will be announced to applicants by email. Accepted abstracts will be included in the e-book of abstracts, published after the virtual event.

The 18WLC Organizing Committee will provide the official templates for your presentations.

Presenters might be requested to make their presentation in a different main theme or in a different format (oral <--> poster) from their original request to ensure a consistent presentation program.
