About this event

This event is organised by CIWEM Welsh branch and CIWEM Rivers and Coastal Group (jointly sponsored by Cardiff IAHR Young Professional Network, ICE Graduates & Students and Institute of Water).

PhD students and research assistants working on environmental, water and modelling topics will each provide a five-minute 'elevator-pitch' style presentation on their area of interest, with questions to follow. This is enough to cover the subject and generate interest and allows for between 9 and 10 presentations in the evening, covering a wide variety of topics and projects.

We would like to invite anyone working in similar or related fields such as hydraulics, hydrology, water and environmental engineering to come and present. We are not expecting all presentations to be technical, just enough to give an insight into your work and spark interest in the audience.

The event will help promote current research within the Hydro-environmental Research Centre (HRC) at Cardiff University, and provide practitioners with information which should help them in their day-to-day jobs. By developing a closer working relationship between both fields we hope to highlight issues of emerging concern and help shape the direction of future research in response.

Cost for the event is FREE and intended for professional/educational purposes. Refreshments will be available (on a first come first served basis). This event is open to non-members. For more information or to express interest in presenting please contact kingja@cardiff.ac.uk.

To book your place please contact: Tracey Dunford, welsh@ciwem.org
