Submission Deadline November 15, 2019

 

The 2020 RPIC Federal Contaminated Sites National Workshop will provide a forum for the contaminated sites community to learn about technical, scientific and organizational innovations, and best practices for the management of contaminated sites. The Workshop will offer a unique opportunity for the public, private, and academic sectors to meet and exchange new ideas and information with colleagues and industry representatives from across the country and abroad.

GUIDELINES FOR SUBMITTING ABSTRACTS

The Real Property Institute of Canada (RPIC) and the Contaminated Sites Management Working Group invite you to submit presentations related to the assessment, risk management, remediation and management of federal contaminated sites. As the Workshop is being held in Quebec City, presentations proposed to be delivered in French will be given special consideration.

All abstract submissions will be done through our online submission system at https://2020rpicfcsnw.exordo.com/ login by November 15, 2019. Please note that submissions sent via email will not be considered. All presenters are required to register for the Workshop.

Presentations will be selected for inclusion in the preliminary program on the basis of a peer review by the Technical Committee. Abstracts with a commercial or marketing tone (promoting services not the science) will not be accepted. Authors will be notified of acceptance by December 13, 2019.
