Call for Abstracts for NALMS 2015 Symposium

The North American Lake Management Society (NALMS) encourages you to submit your abstracts for their 35th International Symposium to be held in Saratoga Springs, New York from November 17–20, 2015.  The theme of NALMS’ 2015 International Symposium, North American Lakes: Embracing their History, Ensuring their Future, is tied to the historic location in Saratoga Springs, New York.  Lakes in this region, including Lake George and Lake Champlain, served as strategic locations in the French and Indian War, the American Revolution, and the War of 1812.  These waterways now play a major role in the economy of the region, and lake management efforts are essential to preserving water quality.
NALMS encourages the submission of papers or posters on specific topics or others that address topics of broad interest to the lake and reservoir management community.  State drinking water program and source water protection staff may have good information to share on many of the suggested topics such as those listed below.

  • Harmful Algal Blooms – Research and Monitoring
  • Lake Management Case Studies
  • In-Lake Restoration and Management Techniques
  • Internal Loading
  • Reservoir Management

Abstracts are due by May 22, 2015.  Detailed information about submitting abstracts and more information about the Symposium is available in the full Call for Abstracts.
