Call For Papers

The global forum for all aspects of contaminated site assessment, management and remediation, including the latest on PFAS.

Submit papers:

With outstanding scientific and educational programs across the two conferences, the program blends research and industry best practice, drawing on experience from Australian and international markets. More than 700 delegates are expected to converge on the Adelaide Convention Centre, coming from all relevant areas of government, research and industry.

This highly respected, not-to-be-missed conference is an excellent opportunity to share expertise and make connections.

Prospective authors/presenters are invited to submit original works that contribute to the theory or practice of remediation, including the proposal of new methodologies, new research directions and new approaches or schemes for current existing issues.

Abstract submissions
Abstract template and guidelines are available at
The text must be justified, single-spaced 11 point Arial font throughout, unless specified (headings, tables etc. – see template). Body text headings are as per the template (all are Arial font, 12 point: first-level caps and bold; second-level bold; third-level italic. Uppercase usage outlined in template). The text must fit, in its entirety, on two (2) standard A4 pages with 2.5cm margins on all sides. Longer abstracts will not be accepted.
