Water Symposium 2017
Call for Abstracts for the Bi-Annual
Student Symposium on Water-Related Issues
April 4th, 2017
The Centre is hosting its fourth student symposium on water issues, Tuesday, April 4th, 2017. This symposium is designed to improve the flow and communication of ideas across the campuses of Queen’s University and the Royal Military College of Canada. As such, graduate students from across departments and from both institutions will be showcasing their work. The symposium will consist of short talks.
Water issues cover a wide spectrum and research interests are equally as diverse. This diversity will be embraced through a few core themes as follows:
1) Water governance – climate change, policy, etc.
2) Water use – energy, sustainability, human water relations, etc
3) Water resources – lakes and rivers, watersheds, ecosystems, biodiversity, brownfields, etc.
4) Water quality – health, ecotoxicology, biochemical parameters, etc.
