Abstract Specifications & Submittal

Abstracts are due Friday, November 15th 2019

An independent Program Committee will review all abstracts. All topics are welcome within the scope of the technical- and project related aspects of (in-situ) soil remediation. We also invite participants to share their empirical research and field data combining studies done in relation to the technical design of a soil remediation approach. A selection will be made according to the following criteria:

  1. Level of innovation of remediation technique and/or project approach
  2. Level of empirical (field) data to be presented
  3. Degree to which the approach takes sustainability into account. Consider conservation of nature value, energy consumption/transition, usage of space, climate change-  and/or emission issues.

There are two platforms available during Remediationday 2020:

  1. A 20 minute presentation in the conference hall
  2. A 2 minute Posterpitch in the conference hall + Poster in the Foyer
