Spokane River Forum Conference 2019

April 16 & 17, 2019 at The Davenport Grand Hotel, Spokane WA.

Registration is now open.

As with past conferences, over 250 people are expected to attend. Our tradition of offering a unique and innovative bi-state opportunity to share information, network with others and reach out to the public continues.

The theme for this year’s conference is “Building Resiliency.” “To secure our economic and quality of life future,” said Forum board member Guy Gregory, “our communities are building resiliency with new infrastructure, policies and education. At the same time, our collaborative energies are being challenged in some areas and soaring in others.”

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.

Save the Date: Plan to join your fellow Washington State stormwater professionals for MuniCon 2019

April 24 & 25, 2019 in SeaTac, Washington.
This unique conference focuses specifically on addressing high-priority issues and challenges faced by municipal NPDES permittees statewide, in order to promote broad communication, coordination, and sharing of valuable municipal tools and stormwater management approaches from permittees and other professionals across the state.
The conference will provide:
• A unique experience focused specifically on addressing high-priority issues and challenges faced by municipal NPDES permittees statewide.
• Networking with municipal permittees from throughout Washington.
• Diverse planning and operations technical topics.
• Training sessions.
Due to the continued popularity of the half-day sessions, we are again looking for groups who may be interested in self-organizing a session to provide in-depth perspective and/or training on a topic of significance to permit holders across the state. Please contact Laurie Larson (253-445-4593, laurie.larson-pugh@wsu.edu) if you would like more information on how to develop your proposal.

Three-Minute Thesis
Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by the University of Queensland in Australia. Doctoral students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance. 3MT is not an exercise in trivializing or “dumbing-down” research, but challenges students to consolidate their ideas and research discoveries so they can be presented concisely to a non-specialist audience.
