CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

2018 Groundwater Week was designed to provide both educational and networking experiences for all who work in the groundwater industry. We learn best from each other and invite you to share your research, technology transfer, unique applications, and experience in one of a variety of options in Las Vegas, Nevada December 3-6.

All submissions are captured electronically and the content management system turns off at 11:59 p.m. ET on April 20, 2018.

All accepted presenters are subject to the Groundwater Week registration fee and must be registered 45 days prior to the event or their presentation will be withdrawn.

Summit Scientific Sessions/Field Trips

Workshops/Activity Areas

Conference Sessions

Groundwater Summit conference sessions will be offered on Monday and Tuesday and each selected abstract is allocated 20 minutes for a platform presentation.

The content is being designed to address both the most prevalent and niche groundwater topics. The numbers in parenthesis after the topics indicate the projected number of submissions that will be accepted within that subject session. Given the location of the events, application to arid lands is especially encouraged.

Submission topics:

  • Emerging Contaminants, Including Policy Implications (6)
  • Environmental Impacts of Produced Waters (6)
  • Geophysics for Groundwater Model Development and Monitoring (4)
  • Groundwater and Energy (6))
  • Groundwater and Climate Change (4)
  • Groundwater and Integrated Water Management (4)
  • Groundwater Law and Allocation (6)
  • Groundwater Modeling (8)
  • Groundwater Monitoring 6)
  • Groundwater Remediation, including Combined Remedies (10)
  • Karst Hydrology (3)
