SPN9 Aalborg, DK, August 27-30, 2019.
Welcome to the webpage of the 9th International Conference on Sewer Processes and Networks (SPN9). SPN9 is being organised by the Sewer Processes and Networks Research Group at Aalborg University. The event will be held in Aalborg, Denmark, in late august 2019. This will be the third time the conference is held in Aalborg. The conference is an IWA sponsored event and is organised by members of IWA’s Sewer Systems & Processes working group (SSPWG). The number of attendees is typically around 100-150.
Short about the conference content
Although the conference mainly aims at communicating the latest scientific developments in the field of sewer processes and networks, in the past the attendance of practicing engineers has shown to be effective in the sense that exchange of knowledge and experience between researchers and practice is stimulated. In order to underline the virtues of being a specialist conference there are no parallel tracks so as to allow all attendants to participate in discussions. The main themes for the conference are:
- Sewer system impacts (environmental, flooding, health, odour)
- In-sewer processes (e.g. chemical- and biochemical processes, sediment transport, etc.)
- Design, re-design and operational issues
- Monitoring and associated technologies
- Inspection techniques to obtain information on the functioning of sewer systems
- Emerging Issues and new technologies related to sewers
These topic areas have been selected to encompass all the scientific and technical areas (physical/chemical and biological processes, operation, monitoring and management) that are important for sewer networks. The topics cover pure scientific topics as well as more technical fields of interest, such as sewer asset manage-ment and inspection techniques.
- Sewer Systems and Processes
- Sewer Networks Operation and Monitoring
- Sewer Network Inspection Techniques
