Presentations: An orientation to the issues —

This page includes embedded documents and recordings of presentations from the May 17, 2013 Public Research Symposium, held at UW Fox Valley in Menasha, WI.  The UW Fox Valley meeting was one of two public research symposia held in May 2013 and focused on: what do we know, what do we need to know, and how might we answer remaining questions? These public research symposia were intended to 1) help establish a common basis of information for workgroup participants and other interested stakeholders, and 2) help identify the set of issues for the workgroup to address.

Meetings were held on May 9, 2013 at UW Stevens Point and May 17, 2013 at UW Fox Valley. Recordings of the presentations from the May 17th meeting are available through the links below, along with copies of presentation handouts for the meeting.
