International Society for Environmental Biogeochemistry (ISEB) 23rd Symposium

September 24 @ 8:00 am - September 29 @ 5:00 pm

Abstract submissions close on 31 May for the International Society for Environmental Biogeochemistry (ISEB) 23rd Symposium to be held in Palm Cove, Tropical North Queensland, Australia,from 24-29 September, 2017.

The Symposium brings together environmental scientists with a diverse range of interests in an intimate setting which encourages close interactions and exchange of information. A major attraction of the ISEB Symposia are their broad, cross-disciplinary coverage and single theme format. Attendance is typically 150 people

The 2017 Symposium theme is: “From cells to Earth scale processes: traversing the breadth of temporal and spatial scales in biogeochemistry”. The meeting will consist of several thematic sessions led by keynote speakers who are experts in their field.

The topics covered in the 23rd ISEB Symposium are:

  • Biogeochemistry of mined/industrial environments and impacts of resource extraction
  • Frontier techniques in environmental biogeochemistry and microbiology (e.g. –omics)
  • Aquatic and terrestrial microbiology including studies on extreme environments
  • Impacts of pollutants on ecosystems and their remediation
  • Biological interactions and transformations of metallic and organic contaminants in the environment
  • Soil, water and landscape processes (including atmospheric fluxes/interactions)
  • Microbe-mineral-organic matter interactions
  • Marine and coastal biogeochemistry (special focus on tropical coastal systems e.g. reefs)
  • Biogeochemical cycling of major (C, N, P, S) and minor elements – methods, applications, fundamental and applied studies

The middle day of the Symposium is traditionally set aside for field trips which this year, will include an opportunity to visit the Great Barrier Reef.
