12th International Conference on Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Water Pollution (Water Pollution 2012)
|Event Date/Time: Jul 10, 2012||End Date/Time: Jul 12, 2012|
A worldwide increase in water demand for communities, industries and agriculture has placed great importance on water science and management practice. The future development of most countries will depend decisively upon how the increased demand for water will be satisfied, and how the economic and environmental costs for the demand will be met.
The environmental problems caused by the increase of pollutant loads discharged into natural water bodies requires a framework based on scientific results for its regulation and control. The changes in water quality due to pollutant discharges allow for more efficient ways of controlling and treating waste loads.
Environmental problems are essentially multidisciplinary and require engineers, scientist and managers to work together on a wide variety of issues. Hence it is essential to promote the exchange of information between the different parties involved in water pollution problems.
The Water Pollution conference started in Southampton in 1991 and has been held in Milan, Italy, in 1993; Porto Carras, Greece, in 1995; Lake Bled, Slovenia, in 1997; Lemnos, Greece, in 1999; Rhodes, Greece, in 2001; Cadiz, Spain, in 2003; Bologna, Italy, in 2006; Alicante, Spain, in 2008; and Bucharest, Romania, in 2010.
Conference topics include;
* Water quality
* Groundwater and aquifer issues
* Environmental monitoring and control
* Pollution prevention
* Lakes and rivers
* Agricultural contamination
* Wastewater treatment and management
* Offshore pollution and oil spills
* Emerging technologies
* Health risk studies
* Socio-economic costs
* Education and training
Papers presented at Water Pollution 2012 will appear in a volume of WIT Transactions on Ecology and the Environment (ISSN: 1746-448X, Digital ISSN 1743-3541). The papers will also be archived online in the Wessex Institute eLibrary and delegates will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper for possible publication in one of the International Journals edited by the Wessex Institute.
