Join Us at IAH 2012 Niagara Falls!
September 16 – 21, 2012
We are now less than one year away from IAH 2012 Niagara Falls. The organizing committee has been hard at work for the past three years planning for this event and we’re pleased to report that things are starting to fall into place.
From September 16 to 21, 2012 we will be meeting at the beautiful Sheraton on the Falls Hotel, which sits just downstream of, and overlooks, Niagara Falls. The hotel has wonderful rooms for guests and is linked to a casino and an indoor water park next door. IAH 2012 Niagara Falls could turn into a holiday for the entire family! With the leaves just starting to change to their fall colours of red, orange and yellow, September is a perfect month to travel to Ontario, Canada!
Call for Abstracts Coming Soon
Look for the opening of the call for abstracts/papers module of the IAH 2012 Niagara Falls website on December 1, 2011. If you have colleagues who should be on our E-news list to receive the Call for Abstracts notice, please be sure to direct them to the home page at www.iah2012.org to sign up for our newsletter.
Technical Program Planning Well Underway
The theme of IAH 2012 Niagara Falls is Confronting Global Change – our technical program will focus on the profound environment, economic, technological, and political changes that are occurring at a global scale. Technical sessions will cover many topics across the breadth of groundwater science. Visit the Congress website at http://www.iah2012.org for more information.
Plenary Session Speakers Confirmed
We have invited four of Canada’s world-renown hydrogeologists to be our plenary speakers at IAH 2012 Niagara Falls:
All have graciously agreed to be our featured speakers. These will be talks that you won’t want to miss!
Proposed Field Trips
Several field trips are in the works – here are the details on three post-conference field trips currently in development:
Prior to the conference join us for a leisurely biking tour of the Niagara Parkway.
Take a Look at our Social Program
In addition to a strong technical program, the committee has also been working to ensure that your visit is memorable from a social point of view. We have arranged for the conference gala dinner to be held at the Elements Restaurant, which sits on the brink of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Beneath the restaurant, we will have exclusive access to the tunnels that lead underneath and behind Niagara Falls. Take the elevator to the bottom of the falls and gaze up in wonder and amazement as nearly 5,400 m3 of water, the drainage from over 400,000 square kilometres of the North American continent, drops over 50 m into the NiagaraGorge each second!
2012 also marks the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812, an important event in Canadian history. The Niagara area played a key role in the war and the Canadian government has just announced plans for country-wide celebrations next year. Look for 19th century British soldiers to be a part of our Canadian Congress celebration.
While in Niagara Falls the Congress will also provide opportunities to visit local award winning wineries. We are also planning a road hockey game – come and take on your Canadian colleagues in one of Canada’s most celebrated sports. Look for the Wednesday night alumni events to be held after our field trip day which will visit many of the local geological and tourist spots surrounding Niagara Falls.
