WEF has decided that the Innovations in Process Engineering 2021 Conference will be a virtual event.  As always WEF plans to offer a great experience virtually that will include innovative topics, virtual peer to peer networking opportunities, and informative sessions from forward-thinking leaders in the water sector.   Participants will be able to  create a learning experience that fit their life schedule, while earning continuing education credits from a developed online program.


We hope you will join us for this virtual event.


The official Innovations in Process Engineering Conference hashtag is #WEFProcessEng. Be sure to use it in your social media posts, and RSVP to the Facebook event!


More information about the technical program is coming soon!

The editorial team for the WEF journal, Water Environment Research, is enthusiastic to build a Special Virtual Issue around this conference theme, and the Conference Steering Committee will invite a selected number of authors accepted to present at the conference to submit a full manuscript for peer review to the Special Issue.
