Sardinia 2013 - 14th International Waste Management and Landfill Symposium

organized by IWWG - International Waste Working Group
with the Scientific support of:
University of Paodva (IT)
Tongji University (CN)
Technological University of Denmark (DK)
Fukuoka University (JP)
University of Central Florida (US)
Hamburg University of Technology (DE)

The Sardinia Symposia were established 25 years ago and have rapidly become the Reference Forum in the field of Waste Management for the international community, where state of the art concepts, strategies and technologies are presented and experiences shared by leading scientists, administrators and practitioners. All new ideas and approaches applied worldwide in the last two decades were thoroughly debated and reviewed during the numerous workshop sessions in the Symposia, some of them purposely organized in cooperation to the IWWG task groups.

Up to 1000 delegates are expected to attend the 2013 edition of the Symposium which will address, among others, topics such as:

Waste policy and legislation
Waste management strategies
Public concern and education
Waste management assessment and decision tools
Waste characterization
Waste collection
Waste minimisation and recycling
Biological treatment
Thermal treatment
Mechanical biological treatment prior to landfilling
Sanitary landfilling
Integrated wastewater and solid waste management
Waste management and climate change
Waste management in developing and low income countries



Abstracts (at least one but no more than two full pages) prepared using the abstract template (to be downloaded from the Symposium website) should reach the Organization no later than 31st January 2013.
The abstract must clearly present background, objectives, methodology and results on a sound basis (innovative case studies, research data, practical experiences, investigations, etc.). Abstracts may be submitted for oral or poster presentation; offers of papers for workshops are also welcome.

The official language of the Symposium will be English. All papers must be written and presented in English. Authors will be expected to attend the conference and present their papers themselves.
In addition, the Symposium will arrange a session to be held entirely in Italian, in order to facilitate the participation of local delegates. Italian authors may freely submit papers for inclusion in both English and Italian sessions (in the English and Italian languages, respectively). Acceptance of abstracts will be communicated to the Leading Author by 28th February 2013. If notification has not been received by the above date, Authors should contact the Organizers.

Full papers should be addressed to the Organizers and received no later than 15th May 2013. Final papers should be prepared in accordance with the Instructions for Authors provided and their quality and contents should conform with the abstract originally submitted. Papers not complying with the conditions above will be removed from the Symposium programme. Authors presenting their work in an oral session or workshop will also be requested to submit their PowerPoint presentations no later than 10th September 2013.

All papers accepted for presentation at the Symposium will be published in Proceedings available at the start of the Symposium.

A selected number of the highest quality papers will also be invited to be peer-reviewed and published by the renowned scientific journal Waste Management, published by Elsevier.
