Join us as we head east to the "Point" of confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers, in the transformed "Steel City," Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for the 2018 UCOWR/NIWR Annual Conference. 

The Conference Planning Committee invites you to propose a Special Session for the conference.  A special session organizers' role is to propose a relevant and timely topic, recruit speakers to submit abstracts to the session, and moderate the session during the June 2018 Conference.  Special sessions can be in the form of a panel discussion or a group of 4 or more oral presentations on a specific topic.  Multiple session track proposals are welcome.  Those interested in organizing and hosting a special session should provide the following information:

  • Title of proposed special session
  • A brief description (less than 350 words) stating the importance of the topic and the rationale for the proposed session
  • Organizer(s), including contact information
  • A draft list of presenters (to submit abstracts via the general call for abstracts) and their tentative titles.

The above information should be submitted directly to the Conference Chair, Kevin McGuire (This email address is being protected from spambots.
