Second UF Water Institute Symposium

The 2nd biennial UF Water Institute Symposium provided a unique forum to tackle major challenges to water resource sustainability at local, regional, state, national and global levels. The Symposium offered plenty of food for thought to satisfy all interested in science, technology, policy and educational issues that will significantly impact water sustainability and affect future research, education, policy, and management agendas. With over 450 participants representing a range of disciplines, professions, interests and experience in sustainable water resources, there were a range of topics and activities from which to choose. Over the two day period there was a buzz of science, policy, education, art, and music around water issues as participants engaged in presentations, posters, panel discussions and networking. Organized around the following five interdisciplinary areas, there were 18 concurrent sessions with a total of over 70 presentations, 110 posters and 8 panel discussions.

  • Hydrologic, biogeochemical, and ecological processes
  • Human dimensions of water sustainability: Communication, Conflict and Control
  • Optimal use of integrated water supplies
  • Managing water and energy in a transitioning environment
  • Integrating science and policy for improved water management
