ON 7 November 2014, conference delegate registration opened for Interspill 2015, with an Early Bird incentive rate available for those booking before 31 December 2014.
The Conference Programme has been boosted by a record number of abstracts from the call for papers which closed in August. Over 150 abstracts have been received, and this has led to a third stream being added to the Conference Programme on Wednesday 25th March.
Conference Chairman, Rob James of OSRL said “The record number of abstracts were of very high quality and reflected our range of issues well. It has been difficult to select from the choice, and we have extended the number of papers to be presented by 20% and have selected over 30 papers for Poster presentations. This is in addition to the papers that will be presented as part of the Spill Industry Seminar and the Science Workshops.
The 2015 Programme is very exciting, and is a reflection of the position that the Interspill event has achieved since its launch in 2000. My hope is that this programme will stimulate even higher numbers of delegates to attend.”
The range of spill related issues that are the basis for the 2015 Conference selected by the Conference Committee include:
Multi Agency response
Remote Sensing / Earth Observation
Future Risk / Future Requirements
Emerging Technologies and Strategies
The preliminary 2015 Conference Programme is now being updated and will be available on the website shortly. www.interspill2015.com
In addition to the Conference Programme, a full programme of Short Courses will be offered on the Monday preceding the Conference, aimed at providing a primer for those new to the industry.
The Scientific Workshop, organised by Cedre, has a confirmed programme line-up for 2015, which includes, Dispersant Breakthrough, BioRemediation, HNS Pollution and Spill impact assessment.
The Spill Industry Seminar, organised by Eurospill, will shortly publish its programme, featuring major industry players, and ranging from manufacturing developments to latest services available.
The 2015 Exhibition will be the largest to-date with over 100 exhibitors confirmed. The exhibition is free to attend and provides a platform for industry, academia and government to meet, discuss and network in a face-to-face environment.
