After careful consideration and in response to continuing developments surrounding COVID-19, we are postponing the International Network of Environmental Forensics (INEF) 2020 Conference scheduled for June 30–July 2 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
With the health and safety of participants our highest priority, the INEF Committee is planning to reschedule the conference for a later date, while at the same time monitoring global developments surrounding this pandemic closely and consulting guidelines from WHO and local authorities. We will announce the rescheduled conference dates as soon as possible. We thank you for your support as we work through this challenging time.
During this time, we invite you to continue submitting abstracts for consideration in all areas of environmental forensics, including chemistry, biology, statistics and legal. Abstracts should be submitted to Katie McClure at firstname.lastname@example.org, and include full address and contact details for the lead author and the presenting author and indicate whether the submission is an oral or poster presentation. Some additional information can be found below.
Conference Abstract submission We will be welcoming abstracts on all areas of environmental forensics, including chemistry, biology, statistics, and legal. Abstracts are welcome from forensic practitioners working in academia, industry and the public sector.
The following guidelines will assist you in the preparation of a successful abstract. Submissions should be written from a strong technical background and should clearly demonstrate a familiarity with the related work and field. A template to assist you in preparing your abstract is available here. Abstracts should be no longer than one A4 page in portrait layout. The title of the abstract should be as concise as possible and co-authors and affiliations listed. The use of figures, graphs and schemes is recommended where this aids the understanding of the text.
Authors of accepted abstracts (oral and poster) will be invited to submit their research for publication in a special issue of the RSC Journal Environmental Science Processes and Impacts (ESPI) (Impact factor 2.6). Travel grants are available for Early Career Researchers - contact David Megson (email@example.com) for more information.
