Student Participation

Student Papers are due October 30, 2019.

University students through Ph.D. candidates are encouraged to attend the Conference and will find participation valuable to their career development. In addition to the technical information gained by attending presentations and visiting exhibits, students will be able to meet and talk with environmental professionals representing a wide range of work experience and employers. 

Recruitment is a major focus of many participating Exhibitors and Sponsors and the Conference will provide enhanced networking opportunities for student job-seekers.

Student Paper Competition

Student papers may be submitted on any topic relevant to the overall technical scope of the Conference. The primary author of each  winning paper will receive a complimentary, nontransferable registration and a cash award, which will provide substantial assistance with travel and hotel costs. Competition participants will be informed of the results in December 2019.

Students who wish to present their work at the Conference (if they win the competition or not) should submit an abstract through the online system by the September 9, 2019, abstract due date. They may then submit their competition papers by the October 30 student paper due date.
