EXHIBIT HALL: The Symposium & Workshop will feature poster presentations and exhibit booths that showcase technologies and scientific advancements from a variety of environmental research programs. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn first-hand about ongoing and recently completed SERDP research projects and ESTCP technology demonstrations. Those wishing to be considered to present a poster in the Exhibit Hall must submit an abstract no later than July 29, 2011. (Poster Abstract Information)
PLENARY SESSION AND PROJECT-OF-THE-YEAR AWARDS: The opening Plenary Session will feature three keynote speakers who will address environmental challenges facing DoD. Also, as part of the Plenary Session, SERDP and ESTCP Principal Investigators who have helped DoD achieve its mission while improving its environmental performance will be honored as the annual SERDP and ESTCP Project-of-the-Year Awards are announced.
TECHNICAL SESSIONS AND SHORT COURSES: A comprehensive technical program consisting of concurrent technical sessions and short courses covering a variety of scientific and technical subjects will follow the Plenary Session. Professional Development Hours (PDH) will be offered for all short courses. Attendance for these courses will be limited, and space will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration will open in late July and is required to reserve a spot. Below are this year’s technical session and short course topics.
