CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: 2019 UCOWR/NIWR Annual Water Resources Conference

June 11-13, 2019 in Snowbird, Utah

Scale new heights as we come both west and up in the spectacular Wasatch Mountains in Snowbird, Utah just outside of Salt Lake City. The challenges facing the water community are constantly increasing in number and growing in complexity. In facing an uncertain future related to water availability in the West, water overabundance and quality in the East and Midwest, and water damage in the Southeast, the need for communicating our research and ideas is ever more important.    

UCOWR and NIWR invite you and your colleagues to join leading researchers, educators, water managers, and other professionals from across the country to address some of the most compelling and important challenges facing our profession.  This year’s conference is unique because, in addition to being both a scientific conference and an exploration of how universities help to meet societal goals, it will highlight the many unmet challenges in a newly uncertain cultural and regulatory climate.

Abstracts for oral, poster, panel, lightning, and participatory presentations should be submitted electronically by January 25, 2019.

Abstracts should not exceed 300 words.  If accepted and presented, the abstracts will be published as part of the Conference Proceedings.

2019 National Water Center Innovators Program Summer Institute

Application Deadline: January 15th
CUAHSI is soliciting applications from students who wish to participate in the 2019 National Water Center (NWC) Summer Institute under the auspices of the NWC’s Innovator’s Program. The Summer Institute will take place at the University of Alabama and the National Water Center from June 10 – July 26, 2019. Student research fellows will collaborate intensively for seven weeks to work on projects designed to contribute to the NWC goals of enhancing water-related products and decision-support services across the country. To facilitate this process, project themes have been defined in advance. The Summer Institute will be led by faculty theme leads and daily oversight will be provided by student course coordinators.
Students participating in the Summer Institute will be grouped into teams organized around projects defined by the theme leaders and pre-selected topics. While there may be some overlap with the students’ individual MS/PhD research projects, the expectation is that the work and research done during the Summer Institute will be a separate, self-contained project.
The 2019 Summer Institute will explore projects around the following themes:

  1. Coupled inland-coastal hydraulics
  2. Scaling hydrologic and hydraulic models from small basins to regional watersheds
  3. Utilizing hydroinformatics to address flood inundation
  4. Support remote sensing of water information through engagement with the computer science community

Questions should be submitted to Danielle Tijerina at dtijerina@cuahsi.org.
