The 12th International Symposium on Environmental Concerns in Rights-of-Way Management
September 23 – 26, 2018 Denver, Colorado
About the Rights-of-Way (ROW) Symposia
For over 40 years, the ROW Symposium Series have addressed the environmental impacts that result from siting, constructing, using and maintaining rights-of-way.
The symposia draw together and publish practical information on ways of reducing the environmental impacts that result from siting, constructing, using and maintaining rights-of-way.
Theme: “Managing Rights-of-Way in a Changing Climate”
Whether planning new infrastructure or operating existing corridors, environmental management of rights-of-way is evolving alongside changing climates, regulatory requirements, and stakeholder concerns. The 2018 Symposium will provide insights on how these changes are being managed from multiple perspectives.
The plenary panelists will include a climatologist at Colorado State University, an R&D director at the Université du Québec, a director of vegetation management at an energy company, a geotechnical engineer, and a representative of the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
Each day of the symposium will include big picture content as well as information particular to the various aspects of rights-of-way management, including
- Planning and Regulation
- Vegetation and Ecosystems
- Wildlife and Habitat
- Tools and Technology
Abstracts for paper presentations and case studies will be accepted from September 1 – December 15, 2017. Registration and hotel reservations will open April 1, 2018.
