Important World Environmental & Water Resources Congress 2020 and the Watershed Management Conferences Update

After much consideration, we've made the difficult decision to cancel the World Environmental & Water Resources (WEWR) Congress 2020 and the Watershed Management (WM) Conferences, scheduled to take place in Henderson, NV, on May 17-21, 2020. To proceed in an efficient manner, we offer registrants the following options:

  1. Transfer your registration to the next WEWR 2021 Congress in Milwaukee, WI, on May 23-27, 2021. We will honor attendee registration pricing from WEWR 2020 Congress should you choose this option. Your registration fees will remain on your account as unapplied cash, which you may use by contacting ASCE Customer Service or calling (800) 548-2723 by Friday, .
  2. Receive a full refund of the registration fee without penalty. Cancellations must be received in writing by emailing the ASCE Customer Service Team.

Registrants who do not indicate their cancellation options in writing by Friday, , will automatically be canceled and refunded.

Should you choose to be refunded, consider applying these funds to renew or purchase an ASCE-EWRI membership, or purchase one of our ASCE-EWRI journals or books & standards to complete your personal library.

Please rest assured that the final papers submitted to the WEWR Congress 2020 Proceedings and the WM Conference 2020 Proceedings will officially be published in the ASCE Library and will be discoverable. Proceedings papers will be freely available for three months after publication. The WEWR Congress 2020 Proceedings will publish in May 2020. The WM Conference 2020 Proceedings will be available at the end of July 2020.

A new Call for Abstracts will take place for the WEWR Congress 2021 and for the WM Conference 2021. Authors may choose to resubmit abstracts for consideration for either conference. Abstracts will be reevaluated for relevancy by the 2021 conference committees, respectively.

Regardless of the option you select, we recommend visiting the hotel website to manage your existing hotel reservation. Please make the best decision for your own health and safety.

Again, we thank you for your continued patience and dedication to ASCE-EWRI, and we remain available to assist you during these troubled times.
