WEF is seeking steering committee members for a Smart Water Knowledge Development Forum (KDF) tentatively scheduled for August 2016 in Orlando, FL in conjunction with the ISA Water/Wastewater and Automated Controls Symposium. Smart Water was the top requested potential topic for a KDF in a recent survey of WEF Municipal Design Committee and LIFT members. The steering committee will assist in developing the invited event program.

WEF and WERF are collaboratively hosting two Knowledge Development Forums (KDFs) in 2016. A KDF is a participatory forum whose purpose is to advance the state of knowledge on a particular topic, going beyond the traditional educational objectives of a technical session or workshop. Input from varied sources is welcome and the forum encourages the emergence of new ideas. A KDF should have specific outputs that are planned in advance which may include, but are not limited to: educational products and services; reports and publications; social media; research agendas; and/or long-term program plans. The KDFs will be similar to the August 2015 Intensification of Resource Recovery Forum at Manhattan College (http://www.wef.org/forum
), but shorter in duration and focused on a single topic. As appropriate, these will be coordinated in conjunction with the Leaders Innovation Forum for Technology (LIFT) program and/or appropriate WEF committees. The first KDF will be odors-focused and is taking place in Milwaukee, WI on March 24-25 in conjunction with the WEF Odors and Air Pollutants Specialty Conference.
