Metrics and Analysis for Complex Groundwater Communities Workshop
Friday November 18 | Adelaide
Attendees will learn new groundwater ecosystem assessment techniques. We will begin with a review of the environment and challenges, and proceed to new assessment methods using microbes, and analysis techniques for stygobiota. Useful techniques from other fields will also be presented and possible implementation discussed. The workshop will begin with basics, moving to the advanced, and will suit a wide range of experiences.
Business Model Innovation Workshop: Disrupt or be Disrupted
Monday November 14 | Adelaide
The Water Industry Alliance (WIA), in collaboration with the Defence Teaming Centre (DTC), is hosting a full day workshop on Business Model Innovations.
In a volatile, uncertain world ensuring that you have an appropriate Business Model is a must. These new Business Models are being rapidly “copied and pasted” from one country to another, from one industry to another. Everyone is learning - as much from failure as they are from success.

Dr. Rebecca Nelson is the 2016 NCGRT / IAH Distinguished Lecturer
We are pleased to have Dr. Rebecca Nelson as the 2016 NCGRT / IAH Distinguished Lecturer. Dr. Nelson will tour every state and territory in Australia to deliver her lecture entitled: Regulating the cumulative impacts of groundwater withdrawals: Australia and further afield.
The regulation of groundwater extraction has shifted dramatically through an intense era of intense water reforms spanning three decades. A key outstanding issue is controlling withdrawals with an eye to their cumulative impacts on groundwater resources and dependent systems. Such control is complicated not just by the incremental additive effects of many small withdrawals, but also by interactive and synergistic effects. This complexity is intensified further by data paucity, potentially significant time lags, and simultaneous background changes to natural systems, such as those caused by climate change.
