18-20 April 2018 | University of Edinburgh

All ECSWR 2018 participants have had the chance to book themselves onto the exciting pre-conference events on 18 April, hosted by the ESWRA Special Interest Groups. Some pre-conferences take up both morning and afternoon, and some take up either or, thus enabling participants to attend two pre-conferences. You can download the pre-conference booklet here; all participants will also be given a hard copy of this booklet.

Each pre-conference is introduced in more depth on their individual pages.
