Symposium on Urbanization and Stream Ecology


A draft of the full program and the titles and abstracts for all presentations are now available on the SUSE4 Track descriptions and program page

Registration and lodging are closed for SUSE4! 

The Symposium on Urbanization and Stream Ecology is an interdisciplinary meeting held approximately every four-five years with the specific aim to further the scientific study of stream ecosystems in urban landscapes. The fourth symposium will be held at Haw River State Park, Browns Summit, NC on May 31-June 3, 2017. The theme of SUSE4 will be making urban stream rehabilitation a co-evolutionary process by creating a framework to support productive conversations among academics and professionals from the fields of stream ecology, engineering, management, planning, and the social sciences. In addition, the meeting cost are quite low. For example, a student can attend the meeting with housing and all meals for as low as $205, and a professional staying in a 2-person cottage can attend the meeting with all meals included for $345.  The official SUSE4 announcement is now posted to the SUSE4 Overview page.

Reminder – SFS special sessions in urban stream ecology
We want to bring to your attention two urban special sessions (and many others of potential interest to this group) at the Society for Freshwater Science after SUSE4. The SFS organizers have contacted meeting organizers and asked that the urban sessions occur early in the meeting to make it more feasible for participants to attend SUSE4 and SFS. The SFS special session descriptions are listed here:

Session S02 is on stormwater engineering and green infrastructure and is organized by Ken Belt (
Session S23 is on urban stream restoration (following the SUSE4 theme) and is being organized by Allison Roy ( and Mateo Scoggins (
