Dear U-M Water Community,

We invite your participation and presentations at the annual Water@Michigan Forum on Tuesday, January 31, 2017. The day will begin with informal networking and registration at 8:00 and formal presentations at 9:00 am. We will adjourn the formal program at 1:30 after lunch.
Please consider submitting a proposal for a 5-minute lightning talk addressing the theme, Invisible Threats, although presentations on all water-related topics are welcome.
"Invisible Threats" encompass the multitude of critical and emerging water issues hidden from the public eye until an emergency situation occurs. Examples could include water infrastructure, toxicants, persistent organic pollutants, or groundwater depletion.
Presentations are encouraged from all U-M departments and disciplines, including people who presented last year who have a new idea or project to share. Talks may focus on the natural or physical sciences, human behavior, or technological solutions for an invisible water threat, as well as approaches to prevent these issues from emerging in the first place.
Please register for the event or submit a short proposal for a talk through the link below.
The Water@Michigan 2017 forum highlights diverse water-focused research on campus, connects researchers from a broad range of campus units with each other and regional water practitioners, and fosters discussions to help spark future projects. Additional invitees include government, non-profits, foundations and the private sector, with the goal of fostering new connections within and beyond the University water community.
We look forward to your participation.
Thank you,
Jennifer Read
Director, U-M Water Center
