The conference is designed to encourage the exchange of ideas and knowledge between diverse groups of the scientific community concerned by current issues in environmental science, engineering, and management. As it happened in previous CEMEPE/SECOTOX conferences, the organizing committee is in contact with international scientific journals and selected articles from the conference proceedings will be published in special issues of the journals, after they are reviewed. The conference participants will be informed regarding these issues via e-mail. All professionals, researchers, environmentalists and policy makers involved or interested in the area of the conference are invited to present papers relating to the conference topics. Indicate your preference for an oral or poster presentation. Authors are requested to submit abstracts, by e-mail as a Word file attachment to the Symposium Secretariat, by January 31, 2017.
