Deep societal and economic impacts from drought conditions mandate a better understanding of how droughts are characterized and how drought mitigation strategies are designed. Yet, droughts continue to be one of the most difficult natural disasters to model.

This symposium will serve as a forum for researchers and stakeholders to interact and exchange current and emerging techniques for drought characterization, along with methods for local and regional data collection, compilation, and format standardization. This symposium will attract studies that demonstrate how the new knowledge base created from the cyberinfrastructure for data collection, when combined with visualization techniques, leads to improved understanding and practical applications. It will feature a series of invited presentations, posters, and panel discussions, as well as participation of both graduate and undergraduate students.

This symposium is sponsored by the National Science Foundation through the Office of Cyberinfrastructure and the Hydrological Sciences Division, and is in partnership with EWRI (Environmental & Water Resources Institute of ASCE) and US Department of Agriculture, National Institute of Food and Agriculture (USDA NIFA). Information about the symposium, registration, submission, lodging and transportation and driving directions can be found at
