About the Events

The 15th International Symposium on Aquatic Plants will be held in stunning Queenstown, in the South Island of New Zealand, from 18–23rd of February 2018. The aim of the conference is to promote debate on all issues relating to the science and management of aquatic vegetation, and will include a wide scientific programme. It is the first time this meeting has been held outside of Europe, reflecting the rising interest in aquatic vegetation globally.

Previous International Aquatic Plant Symposiums have had an intimate and collegial atmosphere which has facilitated discussion, formal networking and the enjoyment of delegates. To retain this atmosphere, the total number of delegates for the conference is limited, so we will be encouraging delegates to register early. As Queenstown is a very popular destination, we will also be recommending that delegates book their accommodation well in advance of travel.

About Queenstown: Queenstown is located on the shore of Lake Wakatipu among dramatic alpine ranges; it’s rumoured that gold prospectors - captivated by the majestic beauty of the surrounding mountains and rivers - gave this now cosmopolitan town its name. Queenstown is the home of the ultimate adventure bucket list. There are activities such as bungy jumping, sky diving, jet boating, horse trekking, cycling and river rafting all year round. For the less thrill seeking you could take a lake cruise on the 100 year old steamship, and there are beautiful walking tracks, wine tasting, golfing and fishing opportunities. There is something for everyone and on our mid-week excursion we will touch on many of these delights as well as the aquatic botanical fare.

About the Organizer

The meeting is being arranged under the auspices of SIL and the EWRS. An international scientific committee oversees the conference and its outputs while a local organising committee looks after the conference management. Local committee members are Deborah Hofstra, Paul Champion and John Clayton from the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA), Hamilton, New Zealand. Assistance in development of the science and social programme is provided by colleagues within NIWA, from Australia (Tony Dugdale), the USA (John Madsen) and Europe (Andreas Hussner and Petra Redekop). Carolyn Lewis is the Conference Organiser assisting the local committee to run this event.
