HydroInformatics Conference: Swimming in Data without Drowning in the Deluge

Date & Time

July 25-27, 2017 


University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Alabama


Host: Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc (CUAHSI)

The Hydroinformatics Conference addressed how the proliferation of data and cyberinfrastructure has created a new ecosystem for water related sciences in which to research, learn, and educate. This flood of information and systems, however, can be difficult to navigate and can add challenges to scientific and teaching workflows. To fully realize the advantages of information technology in water related research and education, we must develop, maintain, support, and employ data tools and resources that are useful, enable transformative science, and have low barriers to use. As part of this conversation, Lauren Patterson gave one of the keynote addresses titled: “Internet of Water: Sharing and Integrating Water Data for Sustainability”.
