 Smart Water Grid is a new driving force paving the way for the future water industry, which integrates the knowledges of ICT into water resources management to render synergistic effectiveness by converging them.
 The 6st Smart Water Grid International Conference (SWGIC 2018) will be held in Incheon National University, located near Incheon International Airport in Korea (about 30 minutes of distance by bus).
 The SWGIC will provide a leading edge platform for researchers, scholars, engineers and students alike to share their state-of-the-art research and development on global water issues, new ideas and breakthroughs in all areas of smart water grid, and related environmental issues such as climate change and water security.
 Invited speeches, technical and special sessions organised in the conference are under four themes aiming to provide preliminary conference and consensus networks for searching global direction of strategic and technical initiatives and solutions for smart water management.
 We hope you will be able to join us in Incheon, Korea, and we look forward to receiving your contributions. The submission deadline of abstract is July 31, 2018. Topics for technical sessions include, but are not limited to, the followings:
