Call for Posters!
We welcome abstracts for the poster session that describe methods and strategies for addressing uncertainty in meeting aquatic ecosystem objectives in instream flow needs assessments. Posters that highlight projects that integrate ecological, legal, and social aspects as part of comprehensive water management efforts are of particular interest as are examples of holistic methods for defining, developing, and implementing instream flow protections and probability modeling efforts to manage uncertainty in water management decisions. We also welcome abstracts for projects that integrate new habitat quantification methods with historic flow analyses. Other potential poster topics include novel tools for evaluating flow needs and/or applications that use widely recognized environmental flow assessment tools in a new way.
The deadline for abstract submissions is January 30, 2015. Abstracts should be submitted using the form below. A maximum of 30 abstracts will be selected for poster presentations at the workshop. If the poster allocation has not been filled by January 30, the deadline will be extended and abstracts accepted on a first-come-first-served basis until the poster allocation is filled. A notice will be posted when all poster spaces are filled.
Applicants will be notified of acceptance shortly after the January 30 deadline. Applicants submitting abstracts after the deadline will be notified within two weeks of the submission. Details of accepted posters will be posted here shortly after acceptance. Presenters will be asked to be at their posters during the designated poster presentation session.
