Call for abstracts for Oral Presentations and Poster

Climate change, political instability and growing populations put pressure on hydrological resources and the ecosystem services they provide. Our ability to manage water resources successfully relies on appropriate understanding of the underpinning science (hydrology, ecology, geomorphology) and engineering, but also how people and societies interact with water (social science, international studies, economics, humanities).

This one-day meeting will bring together actors and practitioners from across these fields to explore the ways in which interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary approaches can improve our understanding of complex problems and benefit our hydrological future.

Abstract Submission

Those wishing to deliver an oral presentation or poster at the meeting should submit a title, list of authors and a 250-word abstract by Friday 20 February 2020 to Paul Wood at [email protected].

In particular we would welcome submissions centered on interdisciplinary perspectives on flooding, drought, river / habitat restoration, the management and conservation of aquatic waterbodies/ ecosystems, ecosystem services, ecohydrology, hydrogeomorphology / hydromorphology, water resource management and economics, biomonitoring of aquatic system and the importance of communication hydrological information to interdisciplinary audiences and publics.

Who should attend? The meeting will bring together academics, researchers, consultants, hydrologists, environmental managers, policy-makers, regulators and other practitioners and stakeholders with an interest interdisciplinary hydrology.
