About 200 Australian and international researchers will be attending the Symposium, which is by invitation only. Purpose of Symposium The WIRADA Science Symposium is being convened to: * celebrate the achievements of the WIRADA program over the first three years * showcase the research approaches and outcomes (in the context of research operationalisation) with a broader national and international audience, and in the context of research * validate our science by exposing it to critical peer review agree the research breakthroughs that must be achieved over WIRADA’s final two years * reflect on the research challenges that would need to be addressed beyond June 2013. Desired outcomes The WIRADA Science Symposium will: * validate the research methods and outcomes by our Australian and international peers * elicit fresh or novel ideas that help shape water information R&D over the final stages of WIRADA and identify core research threads requiring further high-impact R&D effort * strengthen collaboration between CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology with leading international and Australian researchers * produce a peer-reviewed publication * provide input to WIRADA Management Committee’s consideration of requirements for water information R&D beyond June 2013, and strengthen the collaborative working culture between CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology.
