The next EWRI Congress will be in Palm Beach in 2016
Who will be going to this event next year?
Most chances I will not be there. Hopefully will make it to WDSA 2016.
That sounds like a great event. I will try to figure out how to attend, as I am living abroad.
Apologies for cross postings.
There will be two WDSA (Water Distribution System Analysis) events in 2016: a WDSA symposium at the EWRI Congress, 22 - 26 May 2016 in West Palm Beach, Florida (http://www.ewricongress.org) and a stand-alone WDSA conference, 24 - 28 July 2016 in Cartagena, Colombia (https://wdsa2016.uniandes.edu.co).
The call for abstracts for the EWRI Congress is currently open at http://www.ewricongress.org. The closing date is 2 October 2015.
