Session ID#: 26129

Session Description:
Water sciences are at the intersection of many different disciplines. To address the challenges that come with this interdisciplinary environment, out-of-the-box solutions might be the answer. This pop-up session provides young scientists with the opportunity to give 5-minute presentations on their perception of the future of water sciences and offers a unique platform to share their vision of how to tackle current and upcoming challenges. Presentations should strive to go beyond one’s research to address broader issues. Selections will be based on ensuring a diverse range of topics and speaker backgrounds. Examples of topics can include, but are not restricted to:

  • Big data: go big or go home?

  • Climate change: a challenge for water, food, and energy ?

  • Under changing funding situations: how to be creative with limited resources?

  • Policy: are the increasing resources at our disposition an opportunity to assist policymakers?
