10th Wetland Pollutant Dynamics and Control (WETPOL) International Conference

10th September 2023 @ 9:00 am - 14th September 2023 @ 5:00 pm BST


The international conference on Wetland Pollutant Dynamics and Control –  WETPOL – will have its 10th edition from 10-14 September 2023 in the beautiful medieval city of Bruges, Belgium.

WETPOL is a biannual international conference bringing together wetland scientists, engineers and practitioners working on wetland ecosystem services, including water quality improvement, climate regulation, and flood control. WETPOL was initiated in 2005 in Ghent (Belgium), and has since then seen successful follow-up conferences in Tartu (Estonia, 2007), Barcelona (Spain, 2009), Prague (Czech Republic, 2011), Nantes (France, 2013), York (UK, 2015), Big Sky (Montana, USA, 2017), Aarhus (Denmark, 2019) and Vienna (Austria, 2021).

The goal of the conference is to improve the understanding of the role wetlands perform in processing nutrients and contaminants, and to discuss and demonstrate how restored and constructed wetlands in the future, via their associated ecosystem services, can contribute to ensure sustainable water management and resource recovery while at the same time regulating and mitigating impacts of global climate change.

You are warmly invited to submit an abstract before April 2nd, 2023. All details can be found here.
