Companies sessions

The Programme Committee of Sardinia 2017 is now soliciting abstracts for a number of companies sessions to be included into the main conference programme.

The primary goal of those sessions is to create a balance scientific and industry contributions, in order to foster exchanges between practitioners and researchers, promote novel solutions to today’s challenges in the area of Waste Management, and provide practitioners in the field an early opportunity to evaluate leading-edge research and present their own products and services. Each session will be allotted 90 minutes and will include a selected number of oral presentations followed by ample time for discussion and opportunities for networking.

Companies sessions broaden the range of commercial opportunities available during the symposium, which includes exhibition areas, rooms available for private or open meetings, networking lunches/breakfast on spectacular seafront terraces, and numerous sponsorship packages.

Topics
Themes of particular interest include but are not limited to those identified in the main conference topics. Submissions may describe technologies, methodologies, applications, prototypes or experiences of clear industry relevance. Particularly, we encourage submission of stories of success in the field of waste management and papers addressing key policy initiatives.

Submissions
Submissions, in the form of 1-2 page abstracts (A4/ PDF format) must be sent by email to papers@sardiniasymposium.it no later than April 15th. Each abstract should describe the content of the proposed presentation, which should be of a technical or strategic nature (i.e. purely marketing/promotional material will not be accepted). 

As regular abstracts, proposals for industry sessions will undergo a thorough selection process. Acceptance will be based primarily on the novelty and applicability of the insights proposed. All accepted papers will be included in the Sardinia 2017 conference proceedings to be made available at the beginning of the conference.
