Thanks to over 700 abstracts having been received for this year’s congress in Malaga, the scientific committee will have plenty to keep them busy in the upcoming weeks. The review process is well under way; abstract acceptances are on track to be issued by 15th June. The committee advises that it will also accept late requests for poster presentations up until the 26th May – one last chance for you!

This year’s congress is being organised by our Spanish Chapter (IAH-GE) and the Center of Hydrogeology of the University of Malaga (CEHIUMA), who we know will make us feel most welcome. With the overall theme of Groundwater Management and Governance – Coping with Water Scarcity, the congress has 10 topics:

  • Groundwater assessment and management
  • Groundwater and climate change
  • Groundwater sustainability and governance
  • Groundwater footprint and virtual water
  • Tools, methods and models to study groundwater
  • Groundwater, wetlands and natural heritage
  • Karst Hydrogeology
  • Groundwater quality and pollution processes
  • Groundwater and socioeconomic development in Latin-America
  • Urban Groundwater

IAH congresses are one key way in which our groundwater family meets to share knowledge and ideas. With several hundred specialists expecting to attend this year’s congress from across the globe, international exhibitors should welcome the opportunity to promote their products and services. IAH corporate supporters who would like to have an exhibition stand are entitled to a 50% discount for exhibition space and one free registration fee. Email for more information.

Early bird registration closes on 30th June – and as well as these discount rates, reduced registration fees are available to students. Don’t delay – we’d love to see you in Malaga!
