2014 Water Research Centre Student Conference
The Water Initiative for the Future (WatIF): 2014 Graduate Conference will be the first national water conference hosted at Queen’s University. WatIF is novel in the fact that it is organized by a multidisciplinary group of graduate students for graduate students. Designed to provide students from across Canada an opportunity to share their research, the Conference will provide a multidisciplinary environment to encourage the flow and communication of ideas. This will be accomplished by bringing together over 300 of the brightest graduate students from across disciplines (policy, health, engineering, geography, biology etc.) and regions of Canada who have one common passion: Water!
Of course with any event, volunteers are needed. If you would like the opportunity to gain valuable experience by working on this conference and having the opportunity to network with students and companies alike, then consider joining the team.
The WatIF: 2014 Graduate Conference will run May 4th - 6th, 2014. For more information on how to get involved please visit: http://www.waterresearchcentre.ca/watif-2014.html
Call for Abstracts Deadline: December 31, 2013. To submit an abstract please visit: http://www.waterresearchcentre.ca/submit-abstract.html
