The Conference Organizing Committee from the University of Florida is pleased to welcome you to the 8th International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS) Groundwater Quality Conference (GQ13) to be held at the University of Florida, J. Wayne Reitz Union, in Gainesville Florida, USA, April 21-26, 2013. The conference is being hosted in the U.S. for the first time, and only the second time in North America. Previous GQ Conferences were held in Tallinn, Estonia (1993), Prague, Czech Republic (1995), Tübingen, Germany (1998), Sheffield, United Kingdom (2001), Waterloo, Canada (2004), Fremantle, Australia (2007), and most recently in Zurich, Switzerland (2010).

During the conference participants can expect to have a socially and technically stimulating experience that brings you up-to-date on the latest issues related to Groundwater Quality, including new approaches for measuring, modeling, and managing water quality. The GQ13 conference will be an opportunity to form new collaborative relationships and to renew existing ones, and to develop new ideas and directions for future work.
