Scientific Programme

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).

Sessions Types

Submissions abstracts for the CIMEE20 sessions can be made according to the below principles and format:
Plenary sessions
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
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.
Oral Communications
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).
Oral-poster Presentations
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.
