Digital Knowledge Presentation

This is an open platform to share your work in a creative way! The Student Activities Committee will be seeking submissions for the Digital Knowledge Presentation. 

These presentations will utilize video to engage, educate, and interact with audiences local and remote to WaterJAM. This competition is geared towards students (undergrad, graduate, post graduate) and young professionals to present their research and design projects.

The Digital Knowledge Presentations should showcase recent or ongoing research, or innovative or novel ideas related to the fields of water and wastewater, such as:

· A novel way to overcome an engineering/scientific challenge

· A noteworthy innovative process or tool

· Ongoing research to include the reason for it, your process, and results to date, if any

· Concluded research project to include your process and conclusions.

A Digital Knowledge Presentation should be 30 seconds to 2 minutes in length and utilize a creative combination of sound and visual imagery to convey a concentrated message. All submissions may utilize video footage, photographic images, animation, voice-over narration, music, humor, etc. to illustrate the message.

Abstracts must be submitted no later than Wednesday, August 1, 2018. No video will be reviewed without abstract submission and approval. The abstract should describe what you will do in the video; i.e. what is the topic and how do you plan to present it, who is your target audience, and what is your desired outcome. The abstract should be concise (max 200 words). Abstracts should be submitted for approval prior to video submission. Final video submissions must be received no later than Wednesday, August 29, 2018.

The Digital Knowledge Presentation is Virginia’s spin-off of the National WEFTEC Interactive Knowledge Exchange session held annually. Entrants are highly encouraged to view these videos at:

  All Digital Knowledge Presentations will be presented on a dedicated monitor at WaterJAM for the regions Industry Professionals to enjoy!
