CALL FOR SPECIAL SESSIONS
Universities Council on Water Resources (UCOWR) and
National Institutes of Water Resources (NIWR) Annual Water Resources Conference
June 21-23, 2016 Pensacola Beach, FL
We will be on the beautiful white sands of the Gulf Coast for the 2016 UCOWR/NIWR Annual Water Resources Conference. We 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
Proposals for Special Sessions will be evaluated by the Conference Planning Committee based on the timeliness and relevance of the topic, and the degree to which the topic will bring together key researchers and practitioners to disseminate recent advances to the water resources community.
Abstracts submitted for an accepted Special Session will be subject to the same submittal and review process as all other abstracts.
