  • 1st  Announcement for the 9th International Conference on Environmental Science and Technology - 2005

The ninth International biennial Conference on Environmental Science and Technology will present the most recent technological and scientific developments associated with environmental problems, emphasising the synthesis of scientific expertise achieved in individual disciplines of environmental science and technology. This synthesis, in combination with the integration of environmental information with economic and social aspects, is prerequisite for adopting sustainable solutions to the numerous contemporary problems.


In view of the success of the previous Conferences dating back to 1989, the meeting aims to bring together engineers, scientists and other professionals from a number of different countries, involved in environmental research and development activities.

The aim of the Conference is to identify and promote best practices in environmental resources management and planning, to present realistic scenarios and reliable economic analysis of environmental issues, to achieve a better understanding of environmental problems, and to seek their solution.

 In this conference, priority will be given to the following areas:

  • Global environmental change and ecosystems management,

  • Water resources management and planning,

  • Water quality issues, 

  • Air quality issues,

  • Solid waste management, recycling and sustainability

We welcome abstracts of original work on any environmental issue including those related to the following topics: 

  • Environmental dynamics:
meteorology, hydrology, geophysics
  • Environmental pollution:

sources, pathways, sinks and interactions between pollutants
  • Environmental sustainability:   

     - Solid waste management
     - Water supply and waste
       water treatment and reuse
resources management & recycling;
