Title: Call for Papers- International Conference on Sustainable Water Resources Management (SWARM 2020)

About Us:

Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati (IITG) is one of the leading institutes of technology and excellence in India. It was established in 1994. At present the Institute has eleven departments and three inter-disciplinary academic centres covering all the major engineering, science and humanities disciplines. IIT Guwahati has the world class infrastructure for carrying out advanced research and has been equipped with state-of-the-art scientific and engineering instruments. Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati's campus is on a sprawling 285 hectares plot of land on the north bank of the river Brahmaputra around 20 kms from the heart of the Guwahati city.

About the Conference

The rapid growth of the population on the earth's surface is forcing industrialization and urbanization. In developing countries, the process of urbanization is more often unplanned and disorganized, resulting in various hazards due to ecological imbalance. The rapid industrialization and urbanization, in turn, have also led to conversion of forest area to agricultural/urban area, filling up of low-lying areas to meet the resource need to support the increased population. Unprecedented natural calamities like devastating flood, riverbank erosion, surface erosion, and landslide can be regarded as manifestation of nature's reaction to restore the balance. The increased emission of greenhouse gases due to industrialization and the continuation of unscientific agricultural practice in many parts of the world have led to climate change. Accelerated change in climate is expected to have a major impact on the future sustainability of the earth. On the other hand, the increase in population has reduced the per capita availability of water which resulted in unplanned exploitation of both surface water and groundwater. Due to overexploitation, groundwater has been depleted in many parts of the world. As a result, it becomes uneconomical to withdraw groundwater from aquifers. The overexploitation of groundwater may also contaminate the aquifer.

This conference, hence, is being organized to provide a platform for discussion among various relevant disciplines so that some meaningful, practical strategies can be evolved towards achieving the goal for sustainable management of water resources of the globe.

Objectives of the Conference

  • To identify the specific issues that need to be tackled for sustainable management of water. The challenges related to modeling and management of various aspects of water will be identified, and a goal will be set to resolve the issue within a specific time frame.
  • To discuss the impact, resiliency, and risks arising from the hazard created by the extreme precipitation, flood including urban flooding, river and catchments erosion, the water quality of both surface water and groundwater, water logging and drought, dams, climate change, etc.
  • To provide a platform for the academic, practicing, and industrial community to share the latest findings in their respective fields as well as to share the information about the difficulties faced by them in solving various water-related problems. The interaction between the academic and the practicing engineers will help in reducing the knowledge gap between the theoretical advances and practical applications, also help in understanding the problem faced by the industry. This conference will also provide a platform to exchange knowledge between the national and international researchers, which will certainly boost the academic and professional collaboration between the researchers
  • To foster participation and dialogue between various stakeholders, including governments, scientific and academic communities, in order to promote sustainable policies for water management, create awareness of water-related problems, motivate commitment at the highest level for their solution and thus promote better management of water resources at local, regional, national and international levels.
