COGER 2018, 37th Annual Open Meeting

COGER 2018 will be held at the Manchester Conference Centre, UK between 11th-13th April, 2018.

The meeting will start at midday on Wednesday 11th April and finish at midday on Friday 13th April 2018. The main purpose of the COGER Open Meeting is an informal discussion of active and proposed research concerning all aspects of environmental radioactivity. The informal nature of the meeting makes it particularly attractive to students or first time presenters. Presentations that might help the COGER community engage with the ‘impact’ agenda are particularly welcome, especially from non-academic stakeholders.

Confirmed speakers include Prof Richard Wakeford at The University of Manchester, UK.

Environmental Chemistry of Water, Sediment, Soil and Air: Early careers meeting

Environmental Chemistry of Water, Sediment, Soil and Air: Early careers meeting is taking place in London, UK on 14th December 2017.

Organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Environmental Science Group, you will have the opportunity to share your research in a supportive environment, network with fellow early career scientists, and hear about the career opportunities available to Environmental Chemists.

Speakers include:

Dr Ailsa Stroud – Defra Air Quality team​
A Senior Scientific Policy Advisor, currently working for Defra’s Air Quality team, Ailsa Stroud has provided impartial scientific advice to the UK Government on atmospheric chemistry and air quality, climate change, global resilience and adaptation strategies and geoengineering. Following her PhD in Atmospheric Chemistry from the University of Cambridge, she spent 5 years as an Ice Core Analytical Chemist at the British Antarctic Survey, leading field programmes in both polar regions.She is also a Visiting Fellow at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice.​

 
Dr Laura Newsome​ – ​University of Manchester
Laura is a research scientist currently working at the University of Manchester. Her research explores how microorganisms affect the fate and transport of contaminants and metals in the natural environment. For her PhD she investigated how natural microbial processes can be stimulated in the subsurface to remediate radioactively contaminated groundwater.  In between obtaining her degree in environmental geology and starting her PhD, Laura spent 6 years working as a radioactive substances and chemicals scientist at the Environment Agency and as an environmental consultant.

Key Dates:

Abstract Deadline: 16th November

Early Bird Registration Deadline: 16th November

Registration Deadline: 30th November

Upcoming events with the Aerosol Society

On the 8th-9th November 2017 the Aerosol Society will be holding two events at the University of Birmingham.

 

A course on the “Fundamentals of Aerosol Science 2017” will be held on the 8th November – find out more here.

This established and highly recommended course provides an opportunity for both new and existing researchers to explore and understand aerosol science and improve or refresh their knowledge of some of the fundamental concepts.

Delegates are also able to choose to attend an interactive exhibitor demonstration and training workshop where our industry exhibitors will be showcasing their aerosol related instruments and technology.

 

The Annual Aerosol Science Conference will be held on the following day. This year’s theme is “Pushing the Limits in Aerosol Measurements and Simulations“.

Now celebrating its 31st year, the conference provides a forum for like-minded aerosol scientists from both academia and industry to network & share knowledge.

Aerosol processes are extremely complex, occurring over wide ranges in timescale and lengthscale, and extending to dense sprays and clouds. Refined measurement and simulation techniques are essential to adequately capture the microphysical detail while describing collective large scale effects and identifying new phenomena.

A focus of this meeting will be to explore the challenges faced in aerosol characterisation and simulation and how these challenges are being addressed.

Deadline for abstracts – 16th October 2017

IEEC 2017

We are delighted to introduce the 2017 International Environmental Engineering Conference & Annual Meeting of the Korean Society of Environmental Engineers (IEEC 2017), held on November 15 – 17, 2017 in Jeju, Korea.

The theme for this year’s meeting will be “Innovative Technologies and Climate Change Adaptation“. In recent years, researchers in environmental science and engineering associated with water, wastewater, air and soil/groundwater are more active than ever. In light of recent concerns about climate change and global environmental issues, resilient solutions for sustainable growth are urgently needed. Therefore, the theme of IEEC 2017 is to disseminate and share Innovative Technologies in environmental science and engineering with respect to climate change adaptation together with scientists, engineers, and policy makers around the world.

Important dates:

Abstract submission due: July 17, 2017
Early registration due: August 21, 2017

Congratulations to the Poster Awards winners at the 26th Japan Society for Environmental Chemistry Annual meeting

The 26th Japan Society for Environmental Chemistry Annual meeting was held in Shizuoka, Japan from 7 – 9th June 2017. This year’s event was attended by 700 people, with 156 oral presentations and 180 poster presentations.

Since 1990, the JEC has been working for the sound management of environmental chemicals through development of analytical techniques and waste treatment, understanding geochemical cycling of elements and molecules, and risk assessment. In order to facilitate communication between researchers and stakeholders in different countries, the JEC has held international conferences for exchanging knowledge related to environmental pollution by micro-pollutants by cooperating with societies in foreign countries.

23rd International Symposium on Environmental Biogeochemistry

23rd International Symposium on Environmental Biogeochemistry (ISEB23), Palm Cove, Australia on 25-29th September 2017, hosted by the International Society for Environmental Biogeochemistry.

The Symposium brings together environmental scientists with a diverse range of interests in an intimate setting which encourages close interactions and exchange of information. A major attraction of the ISEB Symposia are their broad, cross-disciplinary coverage and single theme format. Attendance is typically 150 people.

The theme of this years symposium is “From cells to Earth scale processes: traversing the breadth of temporal and spatial scales in biogeochemistry” and includes sessions on:

  • Biogeochemistry of mined/industrial environments and impacts of resource extraction
  • Frontier techniques in environmental biogeochemistry and microbiology (e.g. –omics)
  • Aquatic and terrestrial microbiology including studies on extreme environments
  • Impacts of pollutants on ecosystems and their remediation
  • Biological interactions and transformations of metallic and organic contaminants in the environment
  • Soil, water and landscape processes (including atmospheric fluxes/interactions)
  • Microbe-mineral-organic matter interactions
  • Marine and coastal biogeochemistry (special focus on tropical coastal systems e.g. reefs)
  • Biogeochemical cycling of major (C, N, P, S) and minor elements – methods, applications, fundamental and applied studies

Key Dates:

Abstract deadline: 31st May 2017

Early Bird Registration: 28th July 2017
