Call for abstracts for international conference
Abstracts for both oral and poster presentations will be accepted until April 30 for the 12th International Phytotechnology Conference, Sept. 27-30, at the Hilton Garden Inn Convention Center, Manhattan.
Kansas State University and the International Phytotechnology Society are co-hosting the event, which will provide opportunities for planners and designers, scientists, engineers, consultants, policy regulators and other interested individuals to explore and discuss how recent developments in phytotechnologies address current and emerging environmental challenges.
Phytotechnologies refer to plant-based technologies to clean water, soil, air and provide ecosystem services, including storm water management and energy from biomass. Educational sessions will address risk exposure and risk reduction, soil restoration and improvement, phytotechnology educational programs, career paths and applications of phytotechnologies.
Session topics, sample abstracts and further information on the conference are available.
Participants from the university include the Office of the Provost, Global Campus and the Department of Chemical Engineering, which is offering CHE 650 Hazardous Waste Engineering Seminar for those who want to attend the conference and earn one hour of credit.
