Abstracts on water research are invited for Day 2, November 9. Building on the Governor’s 50 Year Water Vision we will focus on the four themes: Water Conservation, Water Management, Technology and Crop Varieties and Additional Sources of Supply. These themes include, but are not limited to reservoirs; municipal and industrial water; watersheds; High Plains and other aquifers; irrigation and water conservation; droughts, floods and climate change; water transfers; water reuse; water and energy; water and health.
Student posters must also submit a PDF or other image of draft posters by Monday, October 30, at 4 p.m. Posters must be set up, ready for judging by 8 a.m, Thursday, November 9.
Any area of water related research is invited; studies relevant to Kansas especially encouraged. This conference consistently sells out with annual attendance of over 600 people.
Students are interviewed and their research posters evaluated for the Governor's Outstanding Research Graduate or Undergraduate awards. Westar Energy will sponsor four cash awards to the: top graduate ($125), top undergraduate ($125), and two runners-up ($75). Judges meet with students the morning of November 9. Award presentation will be made during lunch at the conference.
Students must register for the conference at the student rate of $25 for only Day 2, or the entire conference at $50.
