Water for Food

Graduate student poster competition is open

The Water for Food Conference graduate student poster competition is an opportunity for students to present their research about potential solutions for managing and using water resources to feed an increasingly hungry and thirsty world. Presenters must submit a 250-word abstract by March 25 to be considered for the competition.

Posters will be displayed during the conference and viewed by international scientists, scholars and decision-makers from academia, government, industry, private foundations and nongovernmental organizations. In keeping with the conference theme, “Paths to Solutions,” posters will be accepted in four categories:

  • Reducing the Yield Gap: Biophysics, Technologies, Policies and Economics
  • Maximizing Water Use Efficiency in Agriculture
  • Groundwater and Surface Water Hydrology
  • General topics related to Water for Food

The top three presenters and the top finishers in a viewers’ choice competition will receive free conference registration and a prize toward travel expenses or cash.

The Water for Food Conference Poster Committee will review the abstracts and determine by April 1 which posters to accept. Full details about the submission guidelines, prizes, deadlines are available here.
