Environmental Forensics

The Sardinia 2017 Programme Committee is currently soliciting abstracts for inclusion in an International Workshop on Environmental Forensics applied to Waste Management and Contaminated Sites. The workshop aims to unite renowned scientists and researchers to discuss the most advanced theories and newly-emerging challenges in the field.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited, to:

• Environmental liability in waste management • Legal Considerations, including strategic considerations for chemical fate in litigation and arbitration • Contaminant source identification, correlation and remediation • Historical reconstruction of contaminant release into the environment • Contaminant Fingerprinting for source identification and/or age-dating: analytical techniques, methodologies, legal aspects • Integrated Case Studies, employing environmental fate and damage assessments

Abstracts should be submitted to the Organising Secretariat using the online form available by June 15th


All accepted final papers will be published in a dedicated set of Proceedings (ISBN classification).

Publishing partnership with Environmental Forensics Journal:


A selected number of leading papers will be processed for publication on a special thematic issue of Environmental Forensics, published by Taylor & Francis (IF 0,687).
The journal is an international, quarterly, peer-reviewed publication comprising scientific studies that explore or are relevant to the source, age, fate, transport, as well as human health and ecological effects of environmental contamination. Journal topics encompass all aspects of contamination mentioned above within the environmental media of air, water, soil, sediments and biota.
