This symposium will be broken down into a three days program on 17-19 September 2020. Each of the three days of the symposium will consist of a mixture of the following types of sessions.
Scientific program includes: Plenary Lectures (PL, 35 min including discussion), Keynote Lectures (KL, 25 min including discussion), Oral Communications (OC, 15 min including discussion), Oral Poster Presentations (OPP, 5 min with discussion), and Poster Presentations (PP).
Submissions abstracts for the CIMEE20 sessions can be made according to the below principles and format:
The plenary sessions are the most prestigious sessions of the congress. These are exhaustive reviews of major subjects and state of the art techniques within the specialty, addressed to all participants. Speakers in plenary sessions are invited and are among the most renowned in their field of expertise (head lab, specialists and research directors).
Plenary sessions are scheduled at “prime time” in the programme, unopposed to other activities in order to achieve maximal attendance
Special sessions are 60-minute lunchtime sessions and feature presentations by some of the world’s key leaders in research and implementation, high-level leaders from the scientist sphere, head lab. These sessions represent key moments during the conference and provide an opportunity for high-level speakers to give total insights into the environmental remediation and their field of work.
Participants are welcome to submit abstracts for oral presentations. The length of oral presentations can vary between 10 and 15 minutes, depending on the acceptance type and each session has a chair. However, if the submitted abstract cannot be thematically organized into an oral session, it will instead be considered for a poster (only) presentation (see below).
Participants are welcome to submit abstracts for oral-posters, that is, posters in conjunction with a brief oral presentation. The posters will be on display for a full day, and the author will also briefly present (max 5 minutes) the content in an oral poster session, using max 2 slides. However, if the abstract cannot be thematically organized into an oral-poster session, it will instead be considered for a poster (only) presentation (see below).
Poster Presentations (only)
Participants are welcome to submit abstracts for poster presentations. Posters will be on display for a full day. All submissions are, independent of format, subjected to a peer-review process to secure high quality.
The workshops are designed by the Advisory Committee and selected facilitators. Workshops cover all tracks and include several cross-cutting issues and themes. Workshops are sessions in which the speakers are expected to share with the audience their personal experience in a field, either experimental or basic. These sessions are addressed to participants who wish to acquire practical knowledge on a specific subject, and therefore an interactive discussion during or at the end of the workshop is expected.
Please ensure your submission meets the conference’s strict guidelines for accepting scholarly papers. Download the template abstract and abstract submission form.

Welcome to the International Workshop entitled Innovative Materials: Applications for Environmental Remediation
The workshop will take place on 17-19 September 2020 and it will be online Conference. It is structured in five sessions of presentations, each followed by a dedicated breakout session and round table. The speakers were asked to be online and ready to present on the video-conferencing software at the start of the conference.
3rd INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM CIMEE20, Call for abstracts, Workshops, Special sessions
The conference is aimed to disseminate the results of research from universities, research centers, and government boards and bring synergy between research and industry. In the spirit of Materials chemistry, electrochemistry and Environmental analytical chemistry for a sustainable and brighter future, the conference will provide the opportunity for more environmental and efficient technology in the field of chemistry, chemical process and engineering. Deadline for abstract submission: August 31, 2020
Welcome to the 3rd International Symposium CIMEE20:
Workshop 3: Biogeochemistry for Environmental Sustainability
An understanding of biogeochemical redox processes is crucial for predicting and protecting environmental health and can provide new opportunities for engineered remediation strategies.
This workshop will focus on the importance of biogeochemistry in environmental chemistry as well as the role of remediation in sustainability. The workshop mainly discusses the Environmental monitoring, Remediation and Pollution Control of anthropogenic and pollutants across all environmental matrices (air, water, soil and sediment) using cutting-edge chemical technologies and tools.
