11th IWA conference on instrumentation control and automation

18-20 September 2013, Narbonne, France

This is the 11th IWA conference  on Instrumentation, Control and Automation (ICA) that will provide a forum to exchange methodologies and experience internationally on all aspects of sensor technology, instrumentation, control and automation for water, wastewater treatment and transport systems. Specific topics will include sensors and instrumentation, modeling and simulation for control, control systems, detection and early warning, diagnosis systems, life cycle analysis, practical experience of instrumentation and control…


Advanced control is getting increasingly demanded in water and wastewater systems. Indeed, ICA, often perceived as a hidden technology, is found in nearly all systems related to water supply and wastewater management. It was demonstrated that ICA is able to increase the capacity of biological nutrient removal wastewater treatment plants up to 30%. With further understanding and better exploitation of the microbial community involved in water-related bioprocesses and the biochemical reactions they catalyze, ICA technologies will continue to enhance systems’ performances in the next 10 to 20 years.

The ICA Specialist Group organizes quadrennial conferences. The first one dates back to 1973 in London and Paris and the most recent one was in June 2009 in Cairns, Australia. The next major group gathering will be  on September 18th - 20th , 2013 in Narbonne, France during the 11th IWA conference on ICA.
