Call for Papers

To apply to participate in this workshop, please submit:

  • a title and 100-300 word abstract for your proposed research jam.  You may include one figure, but the abstract must fit on one page.  Research Jams are focused on framing new ideas in an intellectual context, looking for connections across fields, and finding what is new and exciting within a given idea.  The intention behind research jams is to provide a format for collaborative, constructive discussion about early stage research ideas.  This discussion can then be focused on the big ideas, and contextualizing work rather than focusing on details of methods and data, or the validity of results.  
  • a 100-300 word personal statement discussing your academic background, why you are interested in participating in this workshop, and how you see your work contributing to the field of socio-hydrology or water governance.  

Submissions should be emailed to by January 31st, 2018.  You will be notified that your submission has been received within one week of submission.  Accepted participants will be notified by Feb 28th.  You must register by April 30th, 2018. Travel, lodging, and most meal expenses will be covered by the workshop for accepted participants.
