NETS 2003 Symposium



The first NETS symposium was held May 9-10, 2003. The symposium was sponsored by the U.S. Army Engineer Institute of Water Resources (IWR). The objectives of the symposium were: 1) to inform academic participants of current Corps processes and methodologies and Corps understanding of possible improvements; 2) to develop a shared view of “improved" inland navigation economic evaluation techniques; 3) to identify and prioritize a list of research tasks necessary to bridge the gap between current practice and desired future; and 4) to Identify a defendable peer review process for evaluation of tools and methodologies to be used by the research effort. The following were some of the items and studies reviewed during the symposium:
