21st Symposium on Health-related Water Microbiology

The conference program will cover all aspects of health-related water microbiology across the whole water cycle, applied and basic research on water, micro-organisms and impacts on human health. It will bring together microbiologists, researchers, policymakers, water practitioners from academia, industry, engineers, water utilities, indigenous communities, public authorities and administration to exchange the latest scientific findings, experience and know-how.

The conference will welcome over 200 delegates from across the world to Darwin, in Australia's North during the beautiful dry season. The conference will be held at the waterfront Darwin Convention Centre, close to the city centre, accommodation and local amenities. 

Delegates will include specialists in environmental and clinical microbiology; infectious diseases epidemiology; and water and sanitation engineering and environmental health practice.

“Water Safety for All — reflections and emerging concerns.”

The theme encourages reflection on the efficacy of water and sanitation safety plans, water quality guidelines, frameworks and surveillance adopted over the past 20 years. A focus on emerging concerns from climate change, environmental stress and extreme events will also feature in the program. The theme contributes to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
