The Norwegian Environmental Chemistry Symposium
From Monday 14 September 2020 -  08:00
To Wednesday 16 September 2020 - 17:00


September 14 - 16, 2020, Hotel Alexandra, Loen, Norway

In these Corona times, most of us are missing their professional environment. Hopefully, by mid-September the pandemic has calmed down so that we  can meet again in person. We therefore wish to invite the Norwegian scientific community in environmental chemistry to a refreshing and stimulating gathering in an informal setting at Hotel Alexandra in Loen, located in the beautiful fjord and glacier district of Norway.

Catch the pulse of Norwegian Environmental Chemistry in 2020

This symposium is addressing leading experts, authorities, regulators and scientists within all aspects of environmental chemistry. The symposium will provide an interdisciplinary platform for students, academic, industrial researchers and public managers to present and discuss the most recent advancements, trends and concerns as well as practical challenges and solutions in environmental chemistry.

A dozen prominent environmental researchers and managers will be invited for plenary lectures to address the past, present and future issues of environmental chemistry. We invite you to provide an oral or poster presentation at this symposium. Suggested topics are listed below, though presentations on adjacent topics that enlighten environmental chemistry are also sought for. We sincerely hope that you will respond positively to this invitation and call for papers. Please inform your colleagues about this opportunity to share and discuss recent experiences and to be scientifically updated in a typical Norwegian informal setting. We look forward to your active participation in this scientific event.
