CWRA Alberta Branch Conference 2018

Mine the Data - Mind the Resource

Data is becoming increasingly important in our efforts to manage our water resources, to provide robust and risk based infrastructure designs that integrate climate change considerations, and to forecast flood and drought events with the most reasonable accuracy possible. The Alberta Branch conferences seek to advance existing common ground between scientists, practitioners and decision-makers. The 2018 conference will address a wide range of resource management and environmental sciences topics within three main themes: 

Theme A: Data Gathering and Analysis

Theme B: Data Management

Theme C: Data Applications


Abstracts Submissions are Open!

Abstracts are due January 31, 2018.
