Welcome to the 4th EWaS International Conference: Valuing the "Water, Carbon, Ecological" footprints of human activities.

Dear EWaS4 followers,


the conditions we are all living in are too unfortunate

Although COVID-19 is an invisible threat to all of us, its impacts are more than visible!

Leaders from several countries officially have declared that we are in War against this mutual enemy!

As in every war you have two choices...either to accept your fate and surrender...or keep on fighting with whatever you have.

It is true that the research community and academia are suffering a severe strike as many conferences have either been cancelled, or postponed.

There are some though that will take place in an alternative way...


This is what EWaS4 Organizing Committee decided too.

EWaS4 will take place virtually in a digital way, utilizing available platforms for teleconference.

We are working on it right now. More details will be announced in the following days.


So, there will not be any "physical" venue but we intend to meet you all through an appropriate teleconference platform.

Thus partial refund of registration fees will occur. More details will be announced in the following days too.


We intend to keep the same dates for EWaS4, God willing and COVID-19 allowing, and also to offer a conference that will meet the high standards of EWaS Series of Conferences


Last but not least...

Full papers' reviewing process is almost complete. The corresponding authors will be notified accordingly in the next few days.

EWaS4 e-proceedings will be developed right before EWaS4 opening day.

All papers will also be published in the OPEN ACCESS MDPI Journal "Proceedings".

Special Issues will be launched right after the conference.


Keep Safe...Remain at Home in order to be all healthy!!!
