Stay tuned! The next webinar in the CLU-IN mining webinar series will be held in Fall 2014.
SETAC Asia/Pacific 2014 Conference
September 14-17, 2014 | Adelaide, South Australia
The theme of Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry's (SETAC) 2014 Asia/Pacific conference is Advancing Science for a Sustainable Environment. The Conference will bring together high profile national and international speakers and delegates from around world. The program consists of topics on aquatic and terrestrial ecotoxicology and ecology, environmental analysis and monitoring, emerging contaminants, environmental chemistry and remediation, effects and exposure modeling, risk assessment, regulation and public perception, and life cycle analysis and sustainability.

NAAMLP 2014 Annual Conference
September 21-24, 2014 | Columbus, Ohio
The National Association of Abandoned Mine Land Programs (NAAMLP) will soon be hosting its annual conference. Stay tuned for more details or click here for updates.
Uranium Mining and Hydrogeology 2014 International Conference and UMREG 2014
September 21-25, 2014 | Freiberg, Saxony, Germany
The seventh International conference of Uranium Mining and Hydrogeology of the Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg, or "UMH VII," will be used as basis of an international forum for discussing uranium related problems in conjunction with protecting and preserving our environment. This conference builds on the very successful past conferences (UMH I to UMH VI) from 1995 until 2011. Practitioners, consultants, regulators, policymakers, researchers, scientists, engineers, and students will have numerous opportunities to learn about innovative and emerging scientific advances and technologies that are needed to address a wide range of environmental issues associated with uranium mining and mine closure. Key session topics include mining technologies, reclamation and remediation, regulatory issues, monitoring measures, modeling techniques, biogeochemistry of uranium, and risk assessment studies.
The International Atomic Energy Agency Technical meeting of the Uranium Mining and Remediation Exchange Group (UMREG) will take also place during the conference. UMREG is a network of peers working in the remediation of uranium mining and ore processing facilities that has existed for nearly 20 years.

34th Oil Shale Symposium
October 13-15, 2014 | Colorado School of Mines
Colorado School of Mines, along with the Center for Oil Shale Technology and Research, will host the 34th Oil Shale Symposium at the Green Center on the campus of Colorado School of Mines. The Symposium will review development of oil shale resources worldwide, including research and development, impact analysis, regulatory framework, and project and program status. The Symposium will consist of a broad overview session on October 13, followed by two days of technical sessions in many different program areas on October 14 – 15. An optional field trip is available on October 16 ? 17 to the Piceance Creek and Uinta Basins. The symposium content is directed primarily toward those active in the development of oil shale resources, including those in the energy industry, government, academic, and stakeholder communities. The field trip is directed at engineers, scientists, stakeholders, and regulators involved in oil shale development. Registration is available at http://csmspace.com/events/oilshale2014/registration.php.

SETAC North America 35th Annual Meeting
November 9-13, 2014 | Vancouver, BC, Canada
The SETAC North America 35th Annual Meeting is a 5-day event featuring a variety of training, networking, and learning opportunities. More than 2,300 scientists, assessors, regulators, and managers will gather to share and discuss emerging research, regulatory developments, and the latest methodologies in environmental toxicology and chemistry. The meeting draws a diverse group of scientists from academia, business, and government representing more than 40 countries. The daily program consists of more than 1,800 presentations in 88 poster and platform sessions. Session tracks cover topics such as aquatic toxicology and ecology, integrated environmental assessment and management, linking science and social issues, environmental or analytical chemistry, regulatory directions, remediation and restoration, and terrestrial or wildlife toxicology and ecology. Special symposia will tackle emerging issues or regional topics of interest. Click here to register.
10th ICARD & IMWA Annual Conference
April 21-24, 2015 | Santiago, Chile
The 10th International Conference on Acid Rock Drainage (ICARD) and the International Mine Water Association (IMWA) Annual Conference will be held as a single conference in Santiago, Chile in 2015. The conference will be a unique opportunity to gather the newly-formed local and South American acid drainage and mine water community. Conference themes include geomicrobiology; biogeochemical cycles and biomining; applied mineralogy and geoenvironmental units; prediction of drainage flow; prediction of drainage chemistry; mine water and drainage collection and treatment; dry covers; scaling from laboratory to field studies; reliable mine water operation; mine water management for closure; mine water geochemistry. Registration is open and can be completed at http://www.icard2015.com/english/registration.
