During the upcoming IAHS from 10 – 14 July, there will be a special program for Early Career Scientists*. Although these sessions are organized by and for Early Career Scientists, they are open to everyone. The sessions aim to (1) bring together peers in an informal environment, (2) improve scientific skills such as writing, (3) stimulate scientific discussion with peers and experienced scientists, and (4) contribute to building a global community of Early Career hydrologists
1. Sun 9 July 15:00 – 17:00 | Early Career Scientist Meeting
Program with informal and scientific parts. Highlight is the Meet the Expert session, during which three experts will share their visions on “Predictions under change in ungauged basins”. After 10-15 min presentations, the floor will be opened for an interactive discussion.
Confirmed speakers: Hubert Savenije, Berit Arheimer, Thomas Skaugen
2. Mon 10 Jul 17:45 – 19:00 | How to write a paper, and get it published
This short course will shortly recall some basic aspects of paper writing (in terms e.g. of content, form and readership) and give practical tips of how to get started, how to respond to reviewers’ comments, how to “negotiate” the author list, and how to select a journal.
Confirmed speakers: Dominic Mazvimavi, Graham Jewitt
3. Mon 10 Jul 19:00 – ..:.. | Early Career Drinks & Dinner
After the Short Course, Early Career scientists can join for (non-sponsored) drinks and dinner at Blue Waters Cafe.
4. Wed 12 July 12:40 – 13:40 | Creating Community for Early Career Hydrologists
This meeting will be open to representatives of early career networks, early career leaders, and anyone who is interested in contributing or participating in creating a community for young scientists. Participants will share examples of existing early career networks and leadership activities, and brainstorm about potential improvements for the (near) future.
All sessions are free of charge. Registration is appreciated (can be for each session separately, or all at once), to make sure all practical arrangements are made. To register, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward meeting you in Port Elizabeth!
