SOLUTIONS for present and future emerging pollutants in land and water resources management
19 June 2018 - 21 June 2018
The 5-year FP7 EU Integrated Project SOLUTIONS is organising its final conference focusing on latest results, tools and conclusions on monitoring, modelling and prioritization of (emerging) chemical substances and their effects in European water resources. The event will be held in Leipzig (Germany) on 19 to 21 June 2018. Our major focus will be to disseminate and critically discuss the extensive outcome of this project with potential stakeholders and end-users of our SOLUTIONS. The programme is related to WFD implementation and advancement and will highlight novel approaches and tools for a more holistic and efficient monitoring and assessment of water contamination including exposure and risk models, effect-based monitoring tools, assessment and prioritization of mixtures, abatement options and policy recommendations. We will also discuss future perspectives for emerging pollution in the water cycle including remaining challenges and research needs. The conference is free of charge. Registration deadline is 15 May 2018. The conference is fee of charge.
Society for Freshwater Science 2018
20 May 2018 - 24 May 2018
The 64th annual meeting of the Society for Freshwater Science (SFS) will take place in Detroit, Michigan (USA) on 20 to 24 May 2018. In freshwater science and its applications, boundaries and divisions can be paradoxical. On the one hand, freshwater scientists must bridge boundaries in nature, connect disciplines and cross cultural. divides to advance basic understanding, open new lines of investigation, and address humankind's most pressing problems. Moreover, solutions to environmental challenges require improved translation of science and a richer, reciprocal linkage across boundaries between science and society. On the other hand, boundaries are important; absolute integration yields homogenization. Much as decades of research reveal the value of environmental heterogeneity, a more vibrant and relevant freshwater science community requires increased disciplinary and socio-cultural diversity. The challenge, then, is navigating boundaries and understanding them, not eliminating them. The SFS of the future will be defined by its treatment of such dynamic tensions, as, indeed, seems likely for human societies in general. In keeping with this theme and unique context, meeting activities will emphasize the sources of inspiration shared by our community, as well as our growing disciplinary and socio-cultural diversity.

International conference on environmental pollution, risk assessment and remediation
18 April 2018 - 20 April 2018
Environmental pollutants can originate from manmade activities or can be naturally present in the environment. They might be present in the soil, water, air and can enter the food chain. The population might get exposed to these pollutants via inhalation, contaminated food and water or through skin contact. The presence of these contaminants in the environment and the food web might have an important impact on the environment and public health. The ICEPRAR conference brings together scientists from academia, laboratories and industry, control authorities and representatives of national and international agencies from Europe and Africa to exchange scientific results and to discuss chemical contamination of the environment and the food chain, environmental remediation, risk assessment and public health impact.

The International Association for Sediment Water Science, bringing together a wide range of researchers from different disciplines, seeks to promote, encourage and recognize excellence in scientific research related to sediments and their interactions with water and biota in fluvial, lacustrine and marine systems and with particular reference to problems of environmental concern. The symposium that began in Amsterdam, Netherlands (1976) has continued on a three-year cycle, meeting in Canada (1981), Switzerland (1984), Australia (1987), Sweden (1990), U.S. (1993), Italy (1996), China (1999), Canada (2002), Slovenia (2005), Australia (2008), England (2011) and South Africa (2014). These tri-annual symposiums provide a forum for interdisciplinary discussions with the aim of better integrating knowledge of the biological, physical and chemical processes between sediments and water. The scale of the meeting is such that the exchange of ideas, techniques and approaches is fostered encouraging this integration and enabling future collaboration.

The effects of global change on floods, fluvial geomorphology and related hazards in mountainous rivers
06 March 2017 - 08 March 2017
The Symposium aims to bring together researchers from several disciplines as hydrology, fluvial geomorphology, hydraulic engineering, environmental science, geography, economy (and any other related discipline) to discuss the effects of global change over the river system in relation with floods. The symposium will try to improve our understanding of how rivers are likely to evolve as a result of global change and hence address the associated hazards of that fluvial environmental change concerning flooding. The symposium will include invited talks given by prominent experts, oral lectures, poster sessions and discussion sessions for each topic. A special issue in Earth Surface Processes and Landforms will be edited with contributions from the participants. Moreover a review/opinion paper from the discussion sessions will be elaborated and submitted to a International Journal indexed in the SCI.
