COTE summer school

"Interactions between ecosystems and rural–urban fringes"

Bordeaux, France, June 11 - 15, 2018

The Summer School is part of the COTE Cluster of Excellence training program and gathers PhD students in environmental sciences, each specialized in different disciplines such as ecology, chemistry, biology and even sociology. Through talks, field trips and roundtables with international experts on integrative ecology, the program will provide a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach on the interactions between ecosystems and rural-urban fringes.

Sunday, June 10, 2018 (all day) to Thursday, June 14, 2018 (all day)

drinking water

Clean drinking water is a valuable resource for human societies and the protection of drinking water is of considerable importance to researchers and governments. How can we ensure the continued protection of drinking water in Canada and beyond our borders?

Please register to join us for GRADtalks: Drinking Water on Thursday, June 7. 

Monday, June 4, 2018 — 9:00 AM to Wednesday, June 6, 2018 — 9:00 AM EDT
Global Water Futures

This will be the first annual general meeting of the Global Water Futures (GWF) program. Plenaries, project reporting, posters, student events, breakout sessions, and other important GWF initiatives will take place during this time. 

The primary purpose of the GWF inaugural Annual Science Meeting is to provide an opportunity for all GWF researchers and affiliated highly-qualified personnel to gather and share their scientific findings and other relevant activities and outcomes with GWF community and users/stakeholders.

Monday, June 4, 2018 — 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM EDT
PIT tag in the field

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is hosting a workshop led by Warren Leach, Oregon RFID, on Radio Frequency Identification Transponders for tracking studies in rivers.

Topics covered

RFID for fish and wildlife tracking

Monday, June 4, 2018 — 8:01 AM to Saturday, June 9, 2018 — 4:00 PM EDT

This course addresses the development of computational models of watershed hydrology in support of water resources management and scientific investigation. The full model development and application cycle is considered: pre-processing, understanding, and generating input forcing data; system discretization and algorithms for simulating hydrologic processes; parameter estimation; and interpreting model output in the context of often significant system uncertainty.

Saturday, May 5, 2018 — 11:00 AM to Sunday, June 24, 2018 — 8:00 AM EDT
THEMUSEUM, the Water Institute, Clean Water Here

A global photography exhibit created by Clean Water Here and 1x.com, and in partnership with the University of Waterloo’s Water Institute, is coming to THEMUSEUM in Kitchener this spring.
