Town Hall Proposals
Proposed by the water community and open to all meeting participants, these one-hour sessions are best for:
- Collecting feedback or raising awareness.
- Government agencies, academic programs, special projects and other focused interest groups to deliver updates and gather input from the broader water community.
- Presentation or panel discussion formats.
Guidelines and Policies
Please keep these items in mind.
- The program committee generally will not consider:
- Proposals that are primarily advertisements of commercial products and services, or that contain the name of a specific experiment in the title or description. (For opportunities to exhibit or sponsor activities at WaterSciCon24, please see the Exhibit page.)
- Submitters may submit more than one proposal, but we ask that you ensure the topics are different.
- The program committee may ask that similar session proposals merge to avoid duplication in the meeting’s scientific program. They may also ask submitters to revise a proposal description. Following the proposal deadline, the program committee will reach out to primary contacts/submitters to make these requests if needed.
If you submitted a Town Hall proposal, you will be notified of acceptance or rejection in mid-November. After town hall submissions close, the program committee reserves the right to:
- Reject or merge multiple proposals submitted by the same submitter(s) or groups on related topics or across sections,
- Merge proposals on similar topics,
- Request that conveners revise the session title and/or description.
The program committee will notify primary contacts/submitters if sessions need to be merged or have their descriptions revised.
