CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Researchers from the University of Iowa Center for Global and Regional Environmental Research and IIHR Hydroscience and Engineering Department, along with several other organizations, are preparing to put their heads together next week in Des Moines.

The symposium is called "Adapting to Weather Extremes: the Economic Impact in Iowa," and the goal will be to discuss Iowa's extremes in weather conditions, and the growing divide between them. Participants will look at the challenges and costs faced by the state when it comes to dealing with extreme weather.

Other objectives at the symposium include generating policy options for adapting to weather extremes, and to encourage discussions among government and business leaders to come up with ways to mitigate extreme conditions. The UI Public Policy Center is organizing the symposium, and the event will be supported by the Iowa Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR). It will start at 8 a.m. at HyVee Hall in Des Moines on December 11th. The even is open to the public.
