Conference Description
Held in the fall of even numbered years and hosted by the Illinois Water Resources Center, the Illinois Water Conference is a gathering of students, researchers, professionals, government representatives, activists, and citizens to discuss the many challenges and advances in Illinois water resources. In the past, presentations have addressed everything from drought to aquatic invasive species to emerging contaminates threatening drinking water. The discussions at the conference yield new insights, collaborations, and networking opportunities that have served our attendees for their entire careers. Student opportunities at the conference include a poster session, a water careers panel, and the chance to meet the key players in Illinois’ water scene. Our next conference will be held in Champaign-Urbana in the fall of 2016. You can sign-up to receive updates about helping plan the conference, submitting an abstract, or attending by joining the Illinois Water Resources Center mailing list by emailing iwrc@illinois.edu. We look forward to seeing you in 2016!

To learn more about the Water Conferences, you can view past presentations on the IWRC website.
