Arizona State University’s College of Liberal Arts and the Southwestern and Rocky Mountain Division of the American Association for the Advancement of Science are bringing together experts, students, and the public for the one-day forum "Adapting to a water-stressed West" on Nov. 4. The West is a long-standing, drought-stricken part of the U.S. where population growth and consumption are increasing water needs, but little to no water is coming in. The forum hopes to promote a useful discussion on sustainable water methods and development challenges. The forum also includes a student poster session and a demonstration of the Decision Theater – Water Simulation program developed by Decision Center for a Desert City. The deadline for submission of a poster abstract is Monday, Oct. 21. To register for the event or the poster competition, visit https://clas.asu.edu/aaas-swarm.
