All abstracts should directly link to one conference sub-theme. Authors should make every effort to draft a well written abstract without grammatical or spelling errors and ensure that the abstract is easy to read and understand. We suggest that authors keep sentences simple, use the active voice and spell out any abbreviations or acronyms. Abstract review criteria include clarity, supporting evidence, scientific rigour, relevance, potential significance, innovation or usefulness in the water sector and allied fields.
All unpublished papers that will be presented in the conference will have an opportunity of being published in the Tanzania Journal of Engineering and Technology (TJET) after the normal peer review process. TJET is an indexed journal under Africa Journals Online (AJOL) https://www.ajol.info/index.php/tjet/about as well as the EBSCO database.
