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.

Abstract Submission

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.
