University of Wisconsin–Madison

Spring Symposium

On Tuesday, May 9th, 2017 at the Gordon Dining and Event Center water experts from around the state met to discuss their latest research at the 2017 Water@UW-Madison Spring SymposiumThe free event featured a series of 30 “speed talks” featuring experts representing a variety of campus departments, universities, and agencies across the state presenting their latest work on water in Wisconsin. Additionally, a panel of UW-Madison faculty fielded questions about the future of water research at UW and its role in serving the state. The event helped set the stage for future cross-departmental collaborations in water research and served to build bridges between water researchers at UW-Madison, other UW campuses, government partners, and the public. The featured presentations are listed below, you can expect to see presentations on a similar range of topics featured at a Water@UW-Madison symposium-type event in 2018!
