We encourage you to submit an abstract for the 3rd UF Water Institute Symposium focused on Complex Challenges and Integrated Solutions for Nutrient Management in Watersheds.  This symposium will bring together scientists, engineers, academics, non-governmental organizations, policy makers, water managers, industry and utility representatives, lawyers, students and the public to explore emerging issues related to nutrient sources, dynamics, management and policy from multiple perspectives.

Presentations are sought that focus on new research, education, policy and technology developments in the following interdisciplinary areas (click on links to below to view detailed topics within each area):

  • Innovative biological, physical and chemical nutrient reduction and recovery technologies

In addition to the topics above student poster abstracts can be submitted on any subject pertaining to water. Student poster authors are eligible to compete for "Best Poster" awards based on the quality of the abstract, poster and discussion. Three poster winners will receive prizes of $1000 each to be used as funding to support future participation at a national conference. Poster presenter winners will be announced during the closing session of the Symposium.
