WaterSciCon24 will be held at the Saint Paul RiverCentre in St. Paul, MN.

175 West Kellogg Boulevard
Saint Paul, MN 55102

WaterSciCon 2024 will be held the week of 23 June 2023.
WaterSciCon24 is a hands-on learning experience with more than three dozen learning workshops supplementing and complementing the scientific sessions, town halls, and other specific programming. Because of the hands-on nature of the sessions, the meeting will be held onsite in St. Paul. Additionally, sessions will be recorded for on-demand viewing online.
Childcare will not be provided onsite. Caregivers can attend the meeting for free.
AGU and CUAHSI welcome those who assist others in need during WaterSciCon. Caregivers are individuals who are at the meeting to assist with childcare or those with ADA needs. Individuals may register for free at any registration counter on-site; valid identification is required.
Registration will open in early 2024. Please visit the website for updates.

More information on housing will be announced. AGU does have multiple hotels in the block at various price points. Please remember that booking in the hotel block helps keep prices for hotels and registration low as cities normally provide better rates to meetings with blocks. By staying in a hotel block, attendees gain the opportunity to further network with industry peers and remain in the center of the activity surrounding the conference.

Please visit the website soon for updates.

This is the second WaterSciCon conference and we expect to build from the inaugural meeting in 2022. We expect up to 1000 attendees.
No, all members of the water community are welcome to attend.
The health and safety of our attendees is top of mind, and we are committed to making #WaterSciCon24 as safe as possible. Please keep checking our website for updates.
WaterSciCon will begin accepting ancillary meeting room requests in early 2024. A fee will apply to all ancillaries.
