Update on preparations for the IAHS 2017 Scientific Assembly

"Water And Development: Scientific Challenges In Addressing Societal Issues”
Dear Colleagues

Herewith an update to assist you with preparations for the IAHS 2017 Scientific Assembly in South Africa in July.

•       The programme is close to being finalised. You have already received information on the acceptance of your paper or poster. Confirmation of your presentation date and time will be sent soon.  Meanwhile, an overview of the programme is available on the conference web site at http://cwrr.ukzn.ac.za/iahs/session-programme 

•       The past few weeks have been very busy for many hydrologists with meetings such as EGU etc. taking place. Given these activities, we have taken the decision to extend the early bird registration to May 15.

•       The Boardwalk Hotel, hosting the conference, has released a number of rooms at a low rate. Please contact them directly to take advantage of this opportunity. Details are on the conference web site.

•       The assessment of the Young Water Scientists support applications is ongoing and will be finalised in the next week or so. It is too late to apply for financial support now.

•       We are planning to hold a group dinner on the beach on Thursday evening i.e. July 13. Registration and payment for the dinner will be done when you register on site in July. The international frisbee competition will precede this.

•       More detailed information on local issues, such currency, electrical sockets, cell phone coverage, sim cards, security, health care etc. will be posted on the conference web site next week.
