On April 6-7, 2023, AWI will host its 2023 Symposium here on campus at The University of Alabama. It will have a theme of H2O R20: Water Research to Operations, and will feature an opening talk from the Birmingham Director of Public Works, a student poster session, a water career fair, oral presentations, a faculty workshop, and a keynote address from James Spann!
The student poster competition ($200 to first place) will occur in the early evening on April 6, after the opening address. so if your parents will be in town for Honors Day, be sure to bring them for support.
