The 1st Norwegian Environmental Chemistry Symposium (NECS 2020) will take place September 14 to 16, 2020 at Hotel Alexandra in Loen, Vestland County. This symposium is planned as the first of a new conference series in a re-newed modern format addressing leading experts, authorities, regulators and scientists associated with all aspects of chemistry applied in environmental sciences, monitoring and regulations..
The Organising Committee will ensure a timely and exciting programme of invited lectures on emerging issues as well as contributed oral and poster presentations. The symposium aims to provide an interdisciplinary platform for students and academic and industrial researchers, public managers to present and discuss the most recent advancements, trends and concerns as well as practical challenges and solutions in environmental chemistry.
Important topics of environmental chemistry to be discussed, are
Marine and Arctic pollution
