On behalf of the Scientific and the Organising Committees we would like to invite you to attend the IWA conference on Sustainable Solutions for Small Water and Wastewater Treatment Systems (S2Small2010) to be held in Girona, in 2010.

S2Small2010 will be organised under the auspices of IWA Specialist Groups Small Water and Wastewater Systems (Small) and Resources-Oriented Sanitation (EcoSan). The Small Systems Conference was held in Exeter (UK, 2000), then in Istanbul (Turkey, 2002), followed by Perth (Australia, 2004), Mexico DF (Mexico, 2006) and Coimbatore (India, 2008). Now the international IWA SG conference on Small Systems comes back to Europe as a joint conference with the IWA SG on Resources-Oriented Sanitation (EcoSan). Thus, the Girona conference is being presented as a joint conference of the 9th IWA Specialised Group conference on “Small Water and Wastewater Systems” and the 2nd IWA Specialised Group conference on “Resources-Oriented Sanitation” (EcoSan).

The main objective of the conference is to jointly discuss recent aspects related to sustainable solutions for small water and wastewater systems (SWWS) within a framework of sharing experiences from the scientific, engineering, operation and governance points of view within an international scope. The definition of small was initially related to those treatment systems serving less than 2000 p.e. Nevertheless, in the last years that definition has been expanded to include industrial water and wastewater systems with loading rates similar to small urban systems. The main focus of the conference will be those explained in the proposed themes. Joint discussion of several of them will be highly welcome, especially those involving a sustainable point of view of the treatment in the area of technological applications for both developing and industrialised countries.

The conference will generate a set of proceedings that include the abstracts of oral and poster presentations. We expect that the state-ofthe-art for current uses and novel processes for further development and future application will be presented at S2Small2010.

Please plan on attending the Conference. We all would like to meet you personally in Girona in April 2010!

Yours sincerely,

Jesús Colprim
Chair of the S2Small2010 conference
