16th SANCIAHS National Hydrology Symposium
The 16th SANCIAHS Symposium jointly organised and sponsored by the Water Research Commission, the University of Pretoria and the Department of Water Affairs will be held on 1-3 October 2012 at the University of Pretoria, South Africa. The Symposium will bring together scientists in the fields of hydrological sciences to share experiences and to exchange ideas on advances in hydrology for the management of finite water resources in the face of potential climate change impacts. Therefore the Symposium calls for abstracts (poster or oral) on the following sub-themes:
· Advances in hydrological prediction and climate change forecasting
· Hydrology, climate variability, climate change and water resource management
· Advances in earth observation, hydrological observation and water resources management
· Paleohydrology and climate change nexus
· Water and Energy
· Hydropedology and hydrology
· Groundwater and surface water interactions
· Ecosystems and Hydrology
· Water Quality and Hydrology
· Alternative sources of water in a water scarce country
· Hydrology, uncertainty and decision-making: the interface between science and policy
Guidelines for Abstracts and Papers
Abstracts should be a brief summary of the paper’s primary premise and findings, no more than 500 words and should adhere to the example template given below. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 27 April 2012. Participants will be notified of the outcome of the selection process and whether the submission has been accepted for a poster or verbal presentation by 15 June 2012.
Participants whose submissions (posters and verbal presentations) are accepted for presentations will be expected to produce a full written version of the paper (the example template will be provided later), before 15 August 2012 for inclusion in the proceedings which will be available on CD at registration.
Full-time students: R800.00
The conference fees (exclusive of VAT) will cover all teas, lunches, Symposium function (cocktail party and dinner), book of abstracts and the CD of the proceedings.
More details about registration will be announced in January 2012.
All delegates should arrange their own accommodation during the symposium and there is a number of hotels and B&B’s available in Pretoria. However, the University of Pretoria will make available a limited number of student residence accommodation at a reasonable rate (details will be posted on the Conference web page in January 2012).
