On to 2020: Submit your abstracts now for the next HYDROVISION International

HVI 2020 abstracts

We have opened up our call for abstracts for HYDROVISION International 2020 (Already, I know!), so now is your chance to contribute to this world’s largest hydro industry event.

This is an ideal opportunity to share your insight and knowledge with more than 3,000 colleagues in the hydro industry who will attend HYDROVISION International 2020 in Minneapolis, Minn., U.S. Abstracts for technical papers will be accepted in nine broad categories: civil works and dam safety, energy storage, equipment and technology, marine energy, market trends and asset strategies, new development, operations and maintenance, policies and regulations, and water and environment.

All abstract submissions will be evaluated by the Conference Planning Committee. Preference will be given to abstracts that focus on innovative, practical and proven technologies and methods and those that include the involvement of an owner or operator of a dam or hydropower project.

Abstracts that describe the focus and content of proposed papers (maximum of 4,000 characters) are due by Aug. 28, 2019, and the submitted will be notified via e-mail no later than Jan. 10, 2020, as to whether or not their paper has been selected. The presenting author for all selected abstracts will then be invited to make either a technical paper presentation or poster gallery presentation at HYDROVISION International 2020.

All presented technical papers will be made available to conference delegates through the online access to papers and presentations program.

In addition, we have issued a call for panelists for the panel presentation sessions.

Panel presentations will be made in a number of conference tracks: civil works and dam safety, energy storage, marine energy, market trends and asset strategies, new development, operations and maintenance, policies and regulations, and water and environment. Panel presentations are intended to be informal in nature, involving a moderator-driven panel discussion that includes questions from the audience.

The HYDROVISION International Conference and Exhibition will be held at the Minneapolis Convention Center July 14-16, 2020.
