Shape Water Knowledge

Water is essential. Ensuring its safety and availability is crucial for the wellbeing of our future. The American Water Works Association (AWWA) and its dedicated contributors are at the fore front of this effort, working tirelessly to advance the water sector through education and knowledge exchange.

Your Knowledge = Powerful Change

One of the keyways AWWA accomplishes our mission of knowledge exchange is through conferences and educational programs built upon public Calls for Abstracts (CFAs). Then hosting respected events for water advocates and interested parties to share knowledge, findings, innovations, and skills.

AWWA actively encourages ALL to take part in this critical mission of knowledge exchange.

Submit an Abstract


What is an abstract?

An abstract is a short summary of a research paper, case study, best practice, or other focused idea that an interested party would like to present in front of an attentive audience. The abstract submission process allows AWWA to evaluate and select relevant presentations to meet specific event goals.

To see which programs are actively seeking submissions and further program details, please visit our Call for Abstracts page.
