Conference "Contaminated Sediments : Environmental Chemistry, Ecotoxicology and Engineering"

The ContaSed2015 Organizing Committee welcomes you to attend the conference "Contaminated Sediments : Environmental Chemistry, Ecotoxicology and Engineering" that will be held from 8 to 13 March, 2015 at the Conference Centre Monte Verità, Ascona, Switzerland.

Conference Themes :

  • Organic and Inorganic Contaminants : Inputs, archives, fate and behaviour of persis­tent organic pollutants (POPs), semipolar and semivolatile compounds, emerging contaminants such as pharmaceuticals, bactericides and engineered nanomaterials, surfac­tants as well as polycyclic aroma­tic (PAH) and petroleum hydrocarbons, heavy metals and organometalics.
  • Effects and Risk Assessment : Detection of bacteria with multiresistance genes. Developing scientific principles for sediment risk assessment as currently discussed on the European Union level in context with the Water Framework Directive and with sediment management activities.
  • Remediation and Engineering : Recently developed innovative techniques. Accidentally contaminated locations e.g. after oil spills. Discussions with respect to naturally occurring processes such as biodegradation and sediment redistribution. Contaminated sediments in the urban water cycle.
