The meeting, funded by the National Science Foundation, brought together 127 scientists from 12 countries to present recent research, develop new collaborations, and advance the state of the science of urban streams. Meeting participants are currently preparing a special issue of the journal Freshwater Science that will feature articles based on talks and themes from the meeting.
