In 2013 we meet again in one of the oldest city of Eastern Europe – Kiev, Ukraine. 
It is not only a beautiful historic city but also easy to get to from other CIS countries and Eastern European countries. Moreover nor citizen of CIS countries neither citizens of European Union will need a visa (no need for a visa). 
For young water professionals coming from CIS countries we have reduced participation fee; additional reduction is foreseen for IWA members
Many of you who participated in the four previous IWA conferences already know that conference topics have high levels of scientific interest. Coffee-breaks and lunch-breaks are long in order to give young water professionals an opportunity to exchange ideas and build a network
During the conference in Kiev a mentoring program will be organized consisting of two parts: panel discussions when senior water professionals will answer questions from young colleagues - mentoring; and consulting hours – when young water professionals meet their mentor face to face and can get his/her advice concerning research topics, scholarships or career opportunities.
