Please join us for our first ever Water@UW-Madison Poster Session, a free event featuring research, art, and activities about water in the UW community.
The session will take place on October 28
th from 3-5 p.m. at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery at 330 N Orchard St. The event is open to the public and will include:
  • Posters featuring the work of UW faculty, students, and water resource professionals
  • Refreshments and cash bar
  • Opportunities to network with people from all over the UW Water Community

Thank you to everyone who submitted an abstract! We are very excited to feature posters from over a dozen different departments that work with water on campus. Please see the list of featured posters below. Don't miss this exciting chance to meet the presenters and learn about all of the great work they do in water across campus!
