The 19th International Symposium on Health-Related Water Microbiology is organized by the International Water Society (IWA) Specialist Group on Health-Related Water Microbiology (HRWM) biennially. In 2017, the Symposium will run concurrently with the UNC Water Microbiology Conference to create a forum for researchers and practitioners focused on microbiology and public health to come together around the intersection of the two. The Conferences will be held in Chapel Hill.
The Conferences will blend interactive workshops with scientific symposia and poster socials, offering participants a variety of opportunities to exchange ideas, debate challenging topics and explore potential collaborations. The focus will be on water microbiology from watershed to human exposure including current concerns in recreational waters, shellfish harvesting waters, emerging technologies and quantitative tools.
IWA members will be able to participate in all Water Microbiology Conference sessions as well a dedicated track each day for members of the IWA Specialist Group on Health-Related Water Microbiology.
