Operator Ingenuity Contest

Not all innovations come not from a research lab. Sometimes, you need to tackle a persistent problem using just what’s at hand and a big shot of ingenuity. Selected inventors will be invited to give a 10-minute presentation in the Innovation Pavilion at WEFTEC 2021.

Submissions for WEFTEC 2021 will be accepted in Spring 2021. 

Technical Presentations

Technical Presentations are generally 30-minutes in length and are selected by the Program Committee in a highly rigorous selection process. Once selected, the abstracts are grouped together topically to make a cohesive session.

The submission period for WEFTEC 2021 is now closed.

Abstract acceptance/rejection notifications will be sent out on June 1. 


Help us educate WEFTEC participants while gaining additional exposure for your company by presenting techinical information at WEFTEC 2021. Exhibitors are encouraged to submit to the Technical Abstract program, but WEF also offers two exclusive formats available only to exhibitors - Mobile Session and the Stormwater Pavilion Case Studies. 

Opportunities for mobile sessions only will open in late March of 2021. Stay tuned for more information!  

Workshop Proposals

Full and half-day Workshops are held at WEFTEC and should cover subjects in depth, using different teaching methods than podium presentations. Hands-on, highly interactive, in-depth workshops are preferred.
