The IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition 2014 is the water industry's largest and most representative event at the global scale. This year, WWC will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, September 21-26th, and AWARE-P will be present in a number of ways. If you are attending the congress, make a note of these events:

A full 1:30 hr AWARE-P session (Wed, Sep 24, 1:30-3:00pm, Room 0.06) will include the launch of the new AWARE-P Suite Community Edition, and a presentation and discussion of the AWARE-P roadmap with the user community.

The pre-Congress Forum on Infrastructure asset management in the water sector (Sunday, Sep 21, 9am–3pm) will present a number of case studies to stimulate discussion of some of the contemporary issues facing infrastructure asset management in the water sector. Some of the cases include AWARE-P and related applications. More info here.

The conference paper IGPI: National-scale Cooperative R&D Rollout of IAM Planning Methods & Tools (Coelho et al., 2014) describing the national IAM initiative, where the AWARE-P methodology and tools played a central role, will be presented on Tue Sep 23, 10:55 (Auditorium 4, Track 1, Session 1, 10:30-12:00).

Finally, a social event on Wed Sep 24, 06:00-07:00pm at ERSAR's space in the Exhibition Hall will host a special commemoration of the AWARE-P, iGPI and PGPI projects' participating utilities, who were instrumental in their success, including two international awards in 2014 (a 2014 IWA Project Innovation Award and the 2014 Muelheim Water Award).
