International Conference Water science for impact

Date: 16 October 2018 - 18 October 2018
Location: Wageningen University & Research, Wageningen

Aim and Scope

Water Science for Impact will focus on water quality and quantity in the broadest sense. The conference brings together leaders in science, policy, and the public and private sectors to examine water science from a multidisciplinary perspective. Water science is crucial to expanding our understanding of water quality and quantity related issues that humankind encounters. Such understanding is key towards identifying critical water-related challenges, developing novel solutions and implementing steps that contribute to achieving the sustainable development goals. We welcome contributions from both the natural and social sciences, as well as from stakeholders and decision makers and from private and public sectors.

Target group

This conference aims at exchanging scientific knowledge and bridging gaps between scientists, policy makers, NGOs and the business community.

Themes

We welcome submissions around three different themes. Abstracts may focus on water systems at different spatial scales, including: urban or regional water systems; river and delta systems; surface and groundwater systems; and marine systems. Abstracts may also include different approaches, including: observing and analytical approaches, system approaches; modelling approaches; experimental approaches; trans-disciplinary and participatory approaches.

Early bird registration before 31 August 2018
