CANADA: 44TH AMOP TECHNICAL SEMINAR ON ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINATION AND RESPONSE
The 44th AMOP Technical Seminar on Environmental Contamination and Response will take place from June 7 to 9, 2022. On behalf of Environment and Climate Change Canada, we are announcing that the 44th AMOP Seminar will be a virtual-only format Seminar. The Seminar provides a forum for professionals working in the field of oil and hazardous materials spills. The forum facilitates the transfer of scientific results and is intended to link research and the operational community. All submitted papers are peer-reviewed by scientific and technical experts.
The Technical Seminar features plenary sessions of 20-minute presentations on spill-related topics including Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosives (CBRNE). Sessions will begin at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time each day. The presentations include a 5-minute question and answer period. Sessions may also conclude with Speaker’s Corner presentations at which results of more recent research can be discussed without an associated paper. For 2022, the 44th AMOP Technical Seminar will not have a registration fee but will have limited availability. Interested participants may include an international audience of government, industry, and academic scientists, as well as operational specialists involved in the prevention, planning, response, and recovery from the accidental release of oil and chemical spills.
