2023 Urban Riparian Symposium

Down By The River: Managing for Resilient Riparian Corridors

February 8-10, 2023
Embassy Suites and San Marcos Convention Center, San Marcos, Texas

Abstracts are being sought for oral presentations, discussion topics (new format), and posters for the Urban Riparian Symposium on February 8-10, 2023.  The theme is Down by the River: Managing for Resilient Riparian Corridors. The Symposium will be held in person only at the Embassy Suites and Convention Center in San Marcos, TX. 

Please submit abstracts using this electronic form (https://forms.gle/SpBAijR5wBYjccSx6) or email to texasriparian@gmail.com on or before December 5, 2022. Email Blake Alldredge balldredge@utrwd.com with any questions.

Oral Presentations

Oral presentations will be 20 minutes in length (15-minute presentation, 5 minutes for questions). If your abstract is accepted, you will receive additional information regarding presentation logistics and guidelines. Please note that the length of each presentation is subject to change. If your presentation is part of a series of presentations, please notify us of the other presentations that it is paired with.

Fervent Riparian Open Discussion Opportunity (FRODO)

FRODOs are a new component being added this year.  The presenter will introduce an article or topic with a short (5-10 minute) introduction that includes some guidance for discussion.  The following 45-60 minute moderated discussion will be open to all. This is a great opportunity to present management problems, construction conundrums, half-baked ideas, ecologically rooted philosophy, or anything related to healthy riparian areas and streams.  This would also be a great forum to host a debate with two or more presenters proposing a variety of perspectives on a topic (wholeheartedly or for fun).

Poster Presentations

Poster presentations are strongly encouraged as they allow extended informal discussions and active participation of co-authors. There will be a dedicated poster session on Thursday, February 9 in addition to the posters being displayed throughout the conference.
