Save the Date for the 2018 CUAHSI Biennial Colloquium!

Hydrologic Connections: Climate, Food, Energy, Environment, and Society

July 29 – August 2, 2018

National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, West Virginia

We are pleased to annouce the following key note speakers: 

  • Kristen Averyt (Desert Research Institute

  • Larry Band (University of Virginia

  • George Hornberger (Vanderbilt University)

Every two years, CUAHSI hosts a symposium to bring together the diverse fields of water science to discuss developments in the hydrology sector of the Earth Sciences.  Under leadership from the CUAHSI Board of Directors, researchers present their latest findings and developments, propose community workshops, and interact with colleagues from different disciplinary fields from all over the country.

CUAHSI’s Biennial Colloquium offers a unique opportunity and a casual environment for participants to discuss ideas and network with colleagues, as well as build new relationships. Students are especially encouraged to attend and present posters.

The proliferation of data and cyberinfrastructure has created a new ecosystem for water related sciences in which to research, learn, and educate. This flood of information and systems, however, can be difficult to navigate and can add challenges to scientific and teaching workflows. To fully realize the advantages of information technology in water related research and education, we must develop, maintain, support, and employ data tools and resources that are useful, enable transformative science, and have low barriers to use. We invite researchers, educators, and practitioners in the water sciences, data and computational sciences, as well as information technology sciences interested in advancing hydroinformatics to participate in this interdisciplinary conference.

The conference will follow the completion of the third Summer Institute at the National Water Center, which is a seven week intensive research fellowship for graduate students to learn about the new National Water Model and help enhance water-related products and decision-support services across the country. A Summer Institute Capstone Meeting will be held on Monday, July 24th prior to the official start of the conference. Conference participants are invited to the Summer Institute Capstone Meeting to learn more about the program through the lens of projects presented by the student participants at no additional cost. A conference session will also highlight and summarize the research contribution made Summer Institute participants.
