(With apologies for cross posting... Please see the below announcement for
the biannual GIS in Water Resources conference of the American Water
Resources Association in March 2010 in Orlando Florida. This conference has

AWRA’s GIS conferences have seen both the breadth and depth of GIS
application areas in water resources and the variety of GIS software tools
to support such efforts expand dramatically in recent years.  This sixth
specialty conference will include presentations and topics on a number of
exciting new developments and research findings at the intersection of GIS
and water resources engineering and sciences. Researchers, practitioners,
and students working in this field are encourage d to submit and abstract

source software, custom geospatial modeling solutions, virtual worlds,
web-based mapping, and more.
