2021 UCOWR/NIWR Annual Water Resources Virtual Conference

June 8, 2021 @ 8:00 am - June 10, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

The 2021 UCOWR/NIWR Annual Water Resources Conference is a perfect opportunity for water resources professionals and students to network, present their work, and build knowledge – in a year like no other. Typically held in locations around the U.S., the 2021 conference will be virtual due to ongoing travel restrictions imposed by the pandemic. Our community is close, and we miss our face-to-face gatherings, but all is not lost. The silver lining to this unfortunate circumstance? Virtual conferences can be more accessible to more people, especially students!

Special events and session tracks already confirmed in our 2021 Conference Agenda:

Career Panel – Established professionals from multiple water-related fields introduce their “boots on the ground” experiences to students and early career professionals

Speed Networking – Fun format for students and early career individuals to make connections with professionals
