2020 UCOWR Annual Meeting June 9-11, 2020


Call for abstracts

Deadline: January 24, 2020

The conference planning committee is pleased to invite abstract proposals for the 2020 UCOWR/NIWR Water Resources Conference. These sessions are an exciting part of the program, highlighting recent advances and transdisciplinary solutions to address complex water problems. Near the headwaters of three continental basins, Minneapolis serves as a reminder that water connects distant places and diverse peoples. The committee encourages abstracts that frame water resource issues in the context of:

  • Geographic transitions and spatial gradeints in Land use, polulation density and climate.
  • Inclusive engagement among stakeholders to address water competition, conflict and inequities.

Abstracts for oral, panel and poster presentations may be submitted electronically by Jan. 24, 2020. Abstracts should not exceed 300 words. If accepted and presented at the conference, the abstracts will be published as part of the conference proceedings.

Other important dates:

Abstracts due: January 24, 2020
Abstract acceptance: Late February 2020
