2019 Sediments Conference
February 11-14, 2019 | New Orleans, Louisiana
The Tenth International Conference on Remediation and Management of Contaminated Sediments will be held February 11-14, 2019, in New Orleans, Louisiana, at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside.
Situated on the bank of the Mississippi River at 2 Poydras Street, the contemporary and award-winning Hilton is conveniently located in the revitalized Arts District. It is within easy walking distance to the French Quarter and Jackson Square. It is home to world-famous Dragos Seafood Restaurant and a wealth of other eateries, from gourmet to traditional Cajun, can be found in the surrounding area. In your free time, shop The Outlet Connection that is connected to the hotel, visit the nearby Audubon Nature Institute that features an aquarium, butterfly garden, and zoo, or tour one of the area’s many museums.
The Sediments Conference series is a forum for sharing research results, practical experiences, and opportunities associated with investigating, remediating, and restoring the environmental and economic vitality of waterways. Managing these aquatic systems requires complex actions that affect a diverse group of stakeholders and touch a wide range of environmental, economic, political and social issues.
The Ninth Sediments Conference (New Orleans, January 2017) was attended by nearly 1,200 scientists, engineers, regulators, remediation site owners, and other environmental professionals, representing universities, government agencies, consultants, and R&D and service firms from over 20 countries.
The technical scope for the 2019 Sediments Conference will provide updates and additions to topics covered by the 2017 Conference and reflect emerging issues and initiatives in sediments remediation and management. Details on sponsor participation, abstract submittal, short courses, and exhibits will be added to this website as they become available.
