AGU and CUAHSI (Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc.) are excited to announce the co-creation of a new meeting for the hydrology community, the Frontiers in Hydrology Meeting (#FIHM22), to be held 19-24 June 2022, in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The greater hydrology community requested and created this inaugural, biennial Frontiers in Hydrology Meeting to:
- communicate science and its integration in other disciplines;
- formulate, implement and test innovative approaches to convene the water community in a unique format that elevates discussion rather than presentations; and
- create new multidisciplinary collaborations.
The overarching theme of the meeting will be the “Future of Water” and this is an opportunity for the community to focus at an event specific to hydrologic science. The conference will complement other, more broadly-defined events.
The meeting, which will change locations globally with each gathering and is intended to occur during summer months, will work to develop actionable solutions to some of the largest water problems. Potential focused topics include water and conflict, human water use, and climate change and water quality.
We want to create and encourage multidisciplinary collaborations across a broad audience, which is why this meeting will offer both in-person and remote capabilities to provide a more equitable and accessible conference experience. We aim to include robust programming for the student and early-career audience and to offer enhanced opportunities for two-way engagement, including a series of structured debates and discussions, plus innovative session formats focused on the community. For those who attend #FIHM22 in person, there will be a community service component in Puerto Rico.
In August, we will announce the calls for proposals. We encourage you to visit our website regularly for the latest updates and details.
We look forward to seeing you in San Juan (or online) from 19-24 June 2022 for #FIHM22!
