AWRA 2010 Spring Specialty Conference
Preliminary Program

Final Program
Water resources professionals who need to be at the forefront of geospatial technology should plan to attend the AWRA Specialty Conference GIS and Water Resources VI in Orlando, FL March 29-31, 2010.   The call for abstracts brought an unprecedented number of responses from leaders in GIS and remote sensing in water resources; the conference planning committee has been working hard to design an exciting and information-packed program!

sampleConference attendees will have the opportunity to explore existing and emerging geospatial technologies ranging from data capture and management to hydrologic information systems, decision support systems and communication. Highlights from the program include session tracks on LiDAR, Groundwater and Groundwater Arc Hydro, the National Hydrography Dataset led by Jeff Simley of USGS and Cyberinfrastructure led by Dr. David Maidment from the University of Texas at Austin.
Workshops and field trips are in the planning stages so plan to check back for more information soon.
The plenary session features a keynote by ESRI’s Jack Dangermond addressing strategic technologies for water resources in the next decade.  The keynote will be followed by a panel discussion, something new for this series of successful specialty conferences.  Panelists to join Jack Dangermond are Dr. Maidment, Carol Wehle of the South Florida Water Management District,  Catherine van Ingen of Microsoft Research and Katherine Lins, USGS.  This session alone will be worth the registration fee!

We look forward to seeing you there!
