AWRA's Annual Water Resources Conference will be held November 4-8, 2018 at the Marriott Inner Harbor at Camden Yards, in the heart of Baltimore's downtown. The Conference Planning Committee is seeking abstracts on any and all topics dealing with, or related to, water resources. Abstracts for both oral and poster presentations are sought.

The conference, hosted by the Delaware Section, in partnership with members of the New Jersey and National Capital sections of AWRA, will convene water resource professionals and students from throughout the nation and will provide attendees the opportunity to learn about and engage in multi-disciplinary water resource discussions. The program will stimulate conversations on water resource management, research and education. The 2018 conference will also include locally relevant topics such as the Chesapeake Bay, the Delaware River watershed, and eastern water law as well as globally significant issues such as coastal resilience, fire effects on watersheds, communication and outreach strategies and integrated water resources.
