The International Symposium on Managed Aquifer Recharge (ISMAR) is the world’s preeminent symposium on managed aquifer recharge (MAR). With the continued unsustainable, overuse of groundwater in many areas of the world, managed aquifer recharge, or the intentional recharge of groundwater aquifers, has become more important than ever in recovering depleted aquifers and developing resilient groundwater supplies for the future ISMAR started with the first Artificial Recharge of Groundwater Conference in 1988 in Anaheim, convened by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Since then, ISMAR symposia have been run jointly under the auspices of the ASCE, International Association of Hydrologists (IAH), and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). ISMAR is truly an international event, having been held in Orlando, Fl (1994), Amsterdam (1998), Adelaide, Australia (2002), Berlin (2005), Phoenix, AZ, (2007), Abu Dhabi (2010), Beijing (2013), Mexico City (2016), and Madrid (2019). ISMAR 11 is going to be held April 11-15, 2022 at the Long Beach Hilton Hotel. It will include a day of workshops, three days of technical sessions and a final day of field trips to local recharge projects. This is a truly an international event that will attract attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors from all over the world. There is sure to also be a strong US presence, because, in California, the passage of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) in 2014, requires that most groundwater basins in California be sustainably managed within the next 20 years. MAR will be a key tool in achieving sustainable groundwater management and is sure to be implemented on a wide scale in the coming years. There are multiple opportunities to sponsor various elements of ISMAR11. The facilities at the Long Beach Hilton are fantastic and exhibit space is placed to maximize attendee contact! Estimated Number of Attendees: 400+
