Clemson Hydrogeology Symposium


Registration is closed for the 2024 event. Additionally, no day-of-event registration will be offered this year.

With over 40 presentations in concurrent sessions on topics such as groundwater remediation and modeling, site characterization, geophysics, geomechanics, and more, the annual David S. Snipes/Clemson Hydrogeology Symposium draws scientists and engineers from universities, government and industry to the Madren Conference Center at Clemson University. The presentations will cover a wide assortment of topics, from hydrogeology to contaminated site remediation to geophysics.

Register by 11:59 PM on March 1 to take advantage of our early bird rates! Regular online registration ends at 11:59 PM on March 20. Late registrations for $260 may be available on the day of the event. We offer in-person and remote options for the March 28 Day of presentations. Due to space constraints, after we reach 350 in-person attendees, registration becomes remote only. If you delay registering till the last minute, check the website before making the drive, as we may not have in-person availability.
