Under Western Skies (UWS) is a biennial, interdisciplinary conference
series on the environment. The fourth conference organizers invite
prospective researchers, authors, artists, and presenters to consider
submitting proposals for oral and poster presentations as well as workshops
and panels.

The conference theme, Water: Events, Trends, Analysis, will be threaded
through four inter- and transdisciplinary conference tracks:

1.            Policy, programs, planning, and management: trends and
emerging topics in this track include history of water, integrated water
management, business risk, stakeholder engagement, governance,
jurisdictions and law, instruments and tools, science and technology,
informing decision makers, innovative interventions and practices,
monitoring and assessment, education, urban planning and design, and
lessons learned.

2.            Safety, reliability, and sustainability: trends and emerging
topics in this track include human rights to water, borders and
transnational issues, resilience and adaptation to climate change,
catastrophes and disasters, alpine and glacial change, tensions in
sustainability, invasive species, conservation, human health and wellbeing
impacts.

3.            Environmental Humanities Issues and Interfaces: trends and
emerging topics in this track include water representations in law and
public policy; in history and environmental history; in world religions,
global literature, film, and drama; in the cultures of science; and in
collaborative projects involving the sciences and humanities.

4.            Agricultural and Industrial Use: trends and emerging topics
in this track include water commodification, rural and Indigenous
communities, water technologies and treatment, impact of scale,
transportation, oil and gas development, mining, fisheries and oceans, and
hydropower.

The UWS Committee look forward to receiving contributions from all
environmental fields of inquiry and endeavor, including but not limited to
the humanities, natural and social sciences, public policy, business, and
law. Non-academic proposals are also welcome.

Please submit your panel or individual proposal at
 https://underwesternskies.submittable.com/submit
<https://underwesternskies.submittable.com/submit>, by January 31st, 2016.

The UWS conference series is the 2015 recipient of the Environmental
Community Organizer (ECO) Award conferred by the Environmental Studies
Association of Canada (ESAC)  (http://esac.ca/eco-award/).
