The Water History conference of the International Water History Association in Delft, the Netherlands, will be a unique opportunity to exchange existing and develop new insights on the history of our most precious resources. The conference is co-organized by IWHA and Delft University of Technology.
Abstracts and sessions
The program committee welcomes abstracts for individual papers and proposals for complete sessions. Session proposals can either include three papers and a commentator or four papers. It is encouraged to include chairs in the session proposal as well. Proposals for multiple sessions under one theme are possible as well. The conference does not predefine topics for abstracts and sessions. Subjects and topics can range from rivers to drops, from seas to mountain lakes, from technologies to cultures, from first settlers to 20th century builders, as long as the subjects are related to water (are “wet”) and historical (are “old”).
Submissions for abstracts and sessions
All abstracts, both individual and from session proposals, will be reviewed by the program committee and should be submitted by the main author of the abstract through the online submission system. Abstracts should not exceed 300 words. Please use this link to the online abstract submission page.
