Deadline Extension of Abstract Submission

We have received more than 500 submissions. However, due to several kind requests, we have decided to extend the deadline for (short) paper submissions. The new deadline is 31 May 2017. This is a firm deadline and there will be no further extension.

AIMS & SCOPE

The Euro-Mediterranean region is currently facing not only political, economical, and social challenges, but also an ever growing environmental degradation that have turned environmental and resource protection into an increasingly important issue. These issues have re-launched the debate on revitalizing the Euro-Mediterranean integration process by means of concrete cooperative projects in many sectors, especially those related to environmental awareness, assessment, and improvement. This integration process is mainly intended to reduce the development gap between the northern and southern shores of the Mediterranean and to create new and closer political, economical, social, cultural, and most importantly scientific ties between these two shores on the basis of common concerns.

 

In this context, and precisely to promote the Euro-Mediterranean scientific partnership so as to develop and integrate environmental research in the region, under the auspices of ‘‘Springer’’ a group of Euro-Mediterranean scientists have recently launched the Euro-Mediterranean Journal for Environmental Integration. The journal, supported and hosted by the University of Sfax, Tunisia and its Association UNIVERSITY & Environment (AUE), offers a scientific platform for presenting and discussing the latest advances in research that focuses on emerging environmental issues and challenges in the Euro-Mediterranean region. In the process, this first international journal from the Euro-Mediterranean region encompassing all disciplines of environmental sciences seeks to give more concrete expression to the Euro-Mediterranean integration process by supplementing existing North–South programs and agreements with a new multilateral scientific program that emphasizes in particular the vulnerability and proactive remediation of the Euro-Mediterranean region from an environmental point of view.

 

To further tackle this task aiming at strengthening the Euro-Mediterranean environmental integration, the Editors of the Euro-Mediterranean Journal for Environmental Integration decided in close collaboration with “Springer” to launch the 1st Euro-Mediterranean Conference for Environmental Integration (EMCEI). The conference aims to gather new research contributions from all disciplines of environmental sciences by many Euro-Mediterranean scientists from diverse backgrounds, in particular from the geo- and bio-environmental sciences and engineering, and thus make an essential contribution towards ensuring that science and knowledge can contribute to promoting a more sustainable environment for the Euro-Mediterranean region.

 

TOPICS

The Committee of EMCEI invites research papers on all crosscutting themes of environmental sciences and engineering, principally focusing on the following major topics:

  • Topic 1. Innovation Approaches & Methods for Environmental Sustainability
  • Topic 2. Environmental Risk Assessment, Bioremediation, Ecotoxicology & Environmental Safety
  • Topic 3. Water Resources Assessment, Planning, Protection & Management
  • Topic 4. Environmental Engineering & Management
  • Topic 5. Natural Resources (Characterization, Assessment, Management & Valorisation)
  • Topic 6. Intelligence Techniques in Renewable Energy (Biomass, Wind, Waste, Solar)
  • Topic 7. Sustainable Management of Marine Environment & Coastal Areas
  • Topic 8. Remote Sensing & GIS for Geo-Environmental Investigations
  • Topic 9. Environmental Impacts of Geo/Natural Hazards (Earthquakes, Landslides, Volcanic & Marine Hazards))
  • Topic 10. Environmental Health Sciences (Natural & Social Impacts on Human Health)
