NEXT WORKSHOP 2015

 

 

Water Works 2015

 

 

Monday, 2 - Friday, 6 November 2015

University of the Free State - Bloemfontein, SA

 

The Water Works Scientific Workshop will be the 1st Annual Scientific Iphakade Workshop** that builds on the previous 10 (ten) Annual Scientific Inkaba yeAfrica Workshops.  The workshop will focus on water and its importance in the biosphere. Themes have been developed around the hydrological cycle, addressing the importance of water in each component of this cycle, as well as its sensitivity to impacts from human activity.  Specific focus is placed on the water challenges faced in South Africa.  Themes include: climate and the potential effects of climate change on water resources;  the impacts of mining, industry, agriculture and the energy sector on water resources;  management of our water resources; water and human rights and dignity;  earth stewardship science and the future of water in Africa and the world.

All Inkaba/Iphakade* students and supervisors intending to participate are requested to register before or on Friday, 25 September 2015.  Proposed student delegates with substantial research results to report on, should liaise with their Inkaba/Iphakade Supervisors/Mentors prior to registration.  Only 40 oral presentations of student papers can be accommodated. The 40 best abstracts will therefore be selected for oral presentation, while only poster presentations will be available for the remaining abstracts.

All 2015 Inkaba/Iphakade* Inkaba/Iphakade* students attending the workshop will be expected to submit an abstract and to make a poster to be displayed for the duration of the workshop/student conference, i.e. Monday, 2 - Friday, 6 November 2015.  An abstract template may be downloaded at http://iphakade.org/index.php/call-for-abstracts/ and should be submitted before 08h00 on Monday, 12 October 2015 to Dr Francois Fourie at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Since this workshop will focus on water-related issues, own MSc/PhD research should be framed within the context of water (eg. if research involves accurate distance measurement between the earth and moon, submisssion could consider the lunar influence on ocean tides).  Should framing own research within a water context, then consider doing research and writing an abstract on any water-related topic of relevance to your life.
