IAHS PUB 2011 International Workshop: P3 - Putting PUB into Practice

May 10, 2011 - 6:00pm to May 14, 2011 - 11:00pm

The current PUB Chair, Professor John Pomeroy of the University of Saskatchewan, supported by the International Secretariat and organising committees, is planning a workshop entitled 'Putting PUB into Practice', to be held in Canmore, Alberta, Canada from the 10th to the 14th of May 2011 (immediately prior to the Canadian Geophysical Union's annual meeting in the neighbouring town of Banff).

The principal aim of the meeting is to make progress towards a crystallisation of 'state of the art' PUB research, in order to facilitate its encapsulation in tools which contribute directly to the solution of real-world challenges in water resources management. We therefore hope to bring together a broad cross-section of researchers, practitioners and toolset developers with interests in this field.

The workshop will comprise presentations by a series of invited speakers with expert knowledge in specific aspects of PUB, augmented by breakout-group discussions and poster sessions. We will consider the challenges of making predictions in a range of data-availability scenarios, and a variety of hydroclimatic contexts, with the aim of translating improved theory into advanced practice.

Information on the aims, organisation and content of the workshop are available at iahs-pub.org/pub2011: more details covering the venue and registration are posted at the same address.

Thank-you for your interest in PUB - we hope to see you in May!
