Apologies if you have already had too many emails about the IAH Congress in Rome (13-18th September, 2015: http://www.iah2015.org). However, the deadline for the abstracts is almost here – 31st March!
If you have not already submitted an abstract, there are many sessions (http://www.iah2015.org/sessions/) to choose from, but can I draw your attention to S8.11 Nanotechnology and groundwater: threats and promises (Topic T8 – New tools and new frontiers):
Nanotechnology applications continue to proliferate across a very wide range of human activities, from clothing to food production, energy storage to paper manufacture, electronics to medications. Two major issues of relevance to groundwater are: What is the contaminant potential of engineered nanomaterials? and What hydrogeological uses could nanomaterials be put to? Session 8.11 invites contributions on any topic relevant to these issues, including: the transport and fate of manufactured nanoparticles (including particle-particle, particle-surface, and particle-solute interactions, and role of nanoparticles in groundwater contamination); manufactured nanoparticle toxicity (including to indigenous microbes); application of nanotechnology in hydrogeological investigation; and application of nanotechnology in remediation.
Hope you can make it!
