Submit/Edit an Abstract

The Annual Conference on Soils, Sediments, Water and Energy at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst has become the preeminent national conference in this important environmental area. The conference attracts 600-800 attendees annually which includes a wide variety of representation from state and federal agencies, military, industry (including railroad, petroleum, transportation, and utilities), environmental engineering, environmental consulting, and academia.

A strong and diverse technical program is developed each year in concert with a variety of educational, social, and networking opportunities. Live equipment demonstrations augment the exhibition hall, bringing real world application to the technical theory presented in the sessions. Focused day and evening workshops provide attendees with practical information for immediate application.

The conference promises to be an exciting opportunity for all those concerned with the challenge of developing creative, cost-effective assessments and solutions that can withstand the demands of regulatory requirements.
