  • DEADLINE: Award/Grant – Priestley Medal (ACS)
    All day
    2019.11.01

    The Priestley Medal is the highest honor conferred by the American Chemical Society (ACS) and is awarded for distinguished service in the field of chemistry.

  • DEADLINE: Award/Grant – Discovery Grant Supplements (DND/NSERC)
    All day
    2019.11.01

    The DND Supplement provides additional resources to researchers whose Discovery Grant applications were successful in the Discovery Grants competition and whose research addresses the DND target areas. Each award is valued at up to $120,000 over three years (up to $40,000 annually). These funds may be used to expand the recipient’s research group (e.g., students, postdoctoral fellows, technicians), to purchase or access specialized equipment, or for other initiatives or resources that would accelerate the recipient’s research program in the targeted areas.

  • DEADLINE: Award/Grant – NSERC Discovery Grants
    All day
    2019.11.01

    DEADLINE FULL APPLICATION

    This program supports ongoing programs of research with long-term goals rather than a single short-term project or collection of projects. These grants recognize the creativity and innovation that are at the heart of all research advances. These grants provide long term operating funds, but are not meant to support the full costs of a research program. Applicants are encouraged to increase the inclusion and advancement of women and other under-represented groups in the natural sciences and engineering, as one means to enhance excellence in research and training. Discovery Grants are awarded to individual researchers, normally for five years.

    Abstract

    Alteration of hydrological conditions in fluvial systems inevitably leads to changes in river morphology, riparian or riverbed vegetation and ecosystems. As literature shows, climate is one of controlling factor of the distribution of plant species. Rapid climate change leads to remarkable changes in the distribution and behavior of plants, contributing to modify the ecosystem equilibrium. Thus, riparian vegetation distribution could change in time and in space depending on the combination of factors affecting the settling and growth of vegetated elements. On one hand the presence of vegetation in rivers exerts an important ecological function and contributes to maintain suitable habitat; on the other hand vegetation and derived materials can be used for erosion control and slope protection to reduce risk events. Thus, the analysis of flow-vegetation interaction is important both to evaluating environmental processes such as sediment transport and mixing of transported quantities and to defining the role of vegetation in channel’s morphodynamics.

    In this conference, we aim to provide a meeting point for scientists from the entire world to present their most recent data and to exchange novel information on basic and applied aspects of microbial biofilms, and their interactions with surfaces. Since this is the first time this conference is located in South America, we also expect to gather Latin-American scientists and industrial companies working on biofilm topics, by promoting the generation of future biofilm related activities and collaboration projects involving South American and world partners. We expect to include topics relevant to South America, such as mining, water sanitation, infrastructure, and health.

    Topics

    • Biofilms and interaction with surfaces (biocorrosion, biofouling, membranes, bioleaching, bio-electrochemical systems, biofilms in medical devices)
    • Water and wastewater treatment (wastewater, drinking water, and mining wastewater)
    • Biofilm modelling (metabolic, reactors)
    • Biofilm ecology (EPS, bioremediation, marine biofilms, drinking water distribution systems, sampling and quantification methodologies).

    All day
    2019.11.13-2019.11.29

    Conference Title: Urban Hydraulic Cycle in a Climate Changing Environment

    We are pleased to welcome you to the 4th International Electronic Conference on Water Sciences (ECWS-4), which will be held online, promoted by the open-access journal Water http://www.mdpi.com/journal/water.

    In the last few years, three International Electronic Conferences on Water Sciences (ECWS-1, ECWS-2, and ECW-3) have addressed important water-related aspects. A fourth conference, aimed at deepening the discussion on issues of the urban hydraulic cycle (UHC), is needed, with the attention focused on water resources availability and exploitation and related management and works, drinking water processes, supply and water distribution systems, storm and sanitary sewers, and wastewater treatments.

    Climate change can alter the balance between the different components of the hydrological cycle. The induced variability may affect water resources availability, people’s lifestyle, and the behavior of water systems as a whole. It is necessary to introduce new models, processes, and methodologies for better (a) understanding how to exploit the available water resources and maintaining a sustainable regime of water use; (b) improving drinking water quality and sanitation, particularly in developing countries; (c) managing the water supply and distribution systems to reduce energy consumption and leakages, ensuring good quality; (d) designing, monitoring, and operating sanitary, storm, and combined sewers avoiding pollutant dispersion in the environment and urban floods; and (e) developing new wastewater treatments and processes to improve the water quality returned to the environment.

    The ECWS-4 invites researchers from the academia as well as from the industry to contribute with novel ideas and experiences to deal with processes within the context of UHC, making references to the following topics framed in a climate changing environment with a special focus on sustainability:

    • Managing Water Resources from Aquifers, Rivers and Lakes
    • Drinking Water Treatments and Processes with Special Focus on Developing Countries
    • Water Supply and Distribution Systems
    • Sanitary, Storm and Combined Sewers and Related Control Works
    • Wastewater Treatment Modeling, Optimization and Control
