NEMC 2020 - The Environment in 2020: Past, Present & Future
Due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, the Symposium Steering Committee has decided to make this year’s Symposium a virtual conference, with the focus on the technical presentations for the NEMC portion of the meeting. This means there will be no committee meetings of The NELAC Institute (TNI) and no training courses. The Conference will feature 139 oral presentations and 40 poster presentations, organized into four (4) tracks, plus four (4) plenary presentations and eight (8) lunch presentations. Attendees can register for the tracks they wish to attend or register for all four tracks at a discounted price. After the conference, attendees can view recordings of all presentations for which they register, as well as all keynote, plenary, and lunch presentations.
Some of the highlights for the week include:
A special half-day general session with a keynote speaker focused on the conference theme and updates from EPA program offices;
A virtual exhibit program showcasing the latest innovations in environmental monitoring;
An innovative new technology showcase; and
Two (2) special keynote presentations on the conference theme.
The titles of the presentations, abstracts, and authors can be found on the NEMC website athttp://nemc.us.
