9th International Symposium On Wetland Pollutant Dynamics and Control

WETPOL is an international symposium bringing together wetland scientists, engineers and practitioners working on wetland ecosystem services, including water quality improvement, climate regulation, and flood control.

The 9th WETPOL will take place from 13-17 September 2021 organised by BOKU University Vienna, Austria. WETPOL is an international symposium bringing together wetland scientists, engineers and practitioners working on wetland ecosystem services, including water quality improvement, climate regulation, and flood control.

The conference will create a framework for wetland scientists and practitioners to exchange knowledge and advance the overall understanding of these complex ecosystems. The goal is to improve our 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.

The conference programme will focus on process-based topics on pollutants dynamics in various types of wetlands including recent advances in the following areas:

  • Biogeochemical cycling of carbon and nutrients
  • Carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas emissions
  • Wetland plants ecophysiology and invasiveness
  • Impact of climate change on wetland systems
  • The role of wetlands in pollutant management at the catchment scale
  • Attenuation of diffuse pollution in wetlands
  • Behaviour of priority and emerging pollutants
  • Molecular and microbial advances related to pollutant fate, disposal and removal in wetlands
  • Advances is modelling for process understanding and design
  • Increase process understanding for TW types, e.g. Evaporative willow systems, Sludge treatment wetlands, Intensified wetlands, Microbial electrochemical wetlands resources recovery from wetlands
  • Role and functioning of wetlands and other nature-based solutions in urban settings
  • Other related topics.

Abstracts can be submitted from now on until 15 April 2021 via the conference website. Call for abstracts for the virtual WETPOL 2021 symposium:

  • How can nature-based solutions and wetland systems contribute to the transition to a circular society
  • Role and functioning of wetlands and other nature-based solutions in urban settings
  • Green walls for wastewater treatment

Several Special Issues in well‑known journals will be available for publication of the full papers. Details will be announced in due time. We do hope that also the virtual edition of WETPOL 2021 will attract your attention and we are looking forward to receiving your abstracts soon.

Due to the current situation of the pandemic we are forced to hold WETPOL 2021 as a full virtual event!
