Maryland Water Monitoring Council – 23rd Annual Conference

There’s still plenty of time to catch the early-bird registration fee for The Maryland Water Monitoring Council’s 23rd Annual Conference at the Maritime Institute, North Linthicum, Maryland, on Friday, December 8, 2017. The theme of this year’s conference is Managing Water Quality in a Changing World. A draft agenda and other conference details are available on the conference webpage. Newly-added sessions include Managing Maryland Lakes in a Changing World, Data to Decisions, and Opportunity of the Commons: Defining Maryland’s Ocean & Coastal Future.

The conference will include a plenary session, six concurrent breakout sessions, posters, exhibitor tables, plenty of snacks, and, of course, the famous Maritime Institute all-you-can-eat buffet lunch. You’ll also have plenty of time to network and catch up with old friends and colleagues during the long breaks.

Early registration ends November 17 and the deadline for abstract submission (oral and poster presentations) is October 20.
