Call for Abstracts

August 5-8, 2024

OAWWA and OWEA are excited to announce that the Call for Abstracts for the 2024 One Water Technical Conference is now open! The conference is August 5-8 at the Kalahari Resorts & Conventions in Sandusky, OH.

We are looking to provide our members and conference attendees with a unique opportunity for professional development and educational opportunities for both the water and wastewater industries at the same time. We have selected the technical topics listed to the right for our concurrent technical program to cover the educational goals of this joint conference.

Abstracts should include concise information and must be a minimum of 400 words and no more than 600 words. This information will be used to review and select presentations for the conference technical program. Submissions that do not meet the above requirements will automatically be disqualified.

This is a highly competitive selection process. The acceptance rate for past One Water events is between 25-30%. Here are some tips and best practices to help your submission have a competitive advantage.

  • For consultants and service providers, consider partnering with a utility or municipality on an ongoing project or case study.
  • For vendors wanting to showcase a product, the presentation must be technical in nature. Sales pitches, or commercials, will not be selected.
  • For new technologies and/or processes, consider a case study with an Ohio utility or municipality.

Please note that any submissions not following the stated guidelines will not be considered.

Presentation time slots are 45 minutes long. The content of the presentation should be 40 minutes in length, allowing for 5 minutes for Q&A.

Note: Primary presenters will be notified either way of the status of the submission by April 15, 2024.
