SUSE4 Talks and posters


The abstract submission deadline has passed

SUSE4 will include 3 different presentation formats: Restoration Case Studies, Restoration Vignettes, and traditional posters. Details on the types of talks and requirements are below.

Poster presentations will be Thursday evening and are intended to be the primary avenue for participants to share original research projects. Any topic related to urban stream ecology and/or management is welcome. Posters should be no larger than 36-inches tall by 48-inches wide (landscape orientation) and be able to be attached to a card-board backer to hang on an easel. Please contact Bob Smith if you have any questions about your poster presentation (

Restoration Case Study presentations will be 20-25 minute talks (5-10 min Q&A), and these presentations that will cover large, regional, multidisciplinary restoration projects. The 30 minute slot is designed to give speakers time to share project background; some of the scientific, engineering, logistical, social, and/or management challenges, and positive outcomes. Projects should be at the watershed or regional scale (i.e., not just a single 300 m reach) and may be at any stage of restoration (e.g., planning, implementation, monitoring). Topics will cover a diverse set of locations, scales, approaches, and topics. Contact Thomas Parr ( if you have any questions about creating your case study presentation.

Restoration Vignettes will be 6 minute talks (2 min Q&A) sometimes called “lightning” talks”, and they will offer an opportunity for speakers to share projects and new research results related to urban stream restoration. Projects should focus on topics related to the meeting theme and/or track breakout sessions, and are designed to spark new ideas/thoughts about urban stream management. Contact Joanna Blaszczak ( if you have any questions about creating your case study presentation.
