2016 Universities Council on Water Resources (UCOWR) / National Institutes of Water Resources (NIWR) Conference

The conference will be discussing critical water issues in the southeastern United States, as well as across the continent and globe.

Water quantity and quality concerns continue to take center stage in the United States and world. Please join the dialogue, as we seek to develop multi-disciplinary solutions to complex water problems.

The Conference Planning Committee invites you to propose a Special Session for the conference. A Special Session Organizers' role is to propose a relevant and timely subject, recruit speakers to submit abstracts to the session, and moderate the session during the June 2016 Conference. Special Sessions can be in the form of a panel discussion or a group of 4 or 6 oral presentations on a specific topic. Those interested in organizing and hosting a special session should provide the following information:

- Title of proposed Special Session

- A brief description (less than 350 words) stating the importance of the topic and the rationale for the proposed session

- Organizer(s), including contact information

- List of potential presenters (to submit abstracts via the general call for abstracts) and their topics, if available

The above information should be submitted directly to the Technical Program Chair, Kevin Wagner (klwagner@ag.tamu.edu), no later than October 19, 2015.

IAMG2019 // 20th Annual Conference of the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences

The conference will cover the usual topics in geo-mathematics, geostatistics, and geomodeling but in particular will bring to fore geomodeling issues at the intersection of food, water, and energy. The challenge of meeting the increased demand for food, water, and energy and the resultant stress on our geo-sphere is broadly accepted as one of the major scientific challenges facing mankind. The feedback processes intrinsic to this tri-partite cycle are best-studied using sophisticated...

Stockholm World Water Week (SWWW) 2019

Stockholm World Water Week 2019

In 2019, World Water Week will explore an inclusive approach. This week’s theme: “Water and society – including all” is recognizing that not everybody is impacted in the same way by too little, too much or too dirty water. Less obvious than last year, the Nexus approach will remain at the heart of the water debate, especially through the seminar topic "Addressing migration through regional integration and water security for all", that explicitly connects water, energy and food security as the...

Migration

SWWW 2019 Seminar // Addressing Migration through Regional Integration and Water Security for All

Regional economic integration can foster transboundary water management as well as energy and food security. It also attracts investments that address infrastructure deficits, accelerates participation in global and regional value chains, and stimulates economic growth. All are important entry points for sustainable development. However, environmental and social co-benefits are typically not as well quantified as economic growth.
