CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Groundwater Week 2019 is designed to provide both educational and networking experiences for all who work in the groundwater industry. Every opportunity to maximize the foundations of groundwater science with water supply, resource protection, and remediation will be applied to this premier groundwater event. We learn best from each other and thus we invite you to share your research, technology transfer, unique applications, and experience in one of a variety of options in Las Vegas, Nevada, December 3-5.

The content is being designed to address both the most prevalent and niche groundwater topics. Given the location of the event, application to arid lands is especially encouraged.

All submissions are captured electronically and the content management system turns off at 11:59 p.m. ET on April 21, 2019.

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the Groundwater Week registration fee and must be registered 45 days prior to the event or their presentation will be withdrawn.
