Meet Me in St. Louis – June 28-30, 2022 AEESP Research and Education Conference
Conference Website: aeesp2022.wustl.edu
The Conference Organizing Committee is delighted to announce that the 2021 AEESP Research and Education Conference will be hosted by Washington University in St. Louis together with Missouri University of Science & Technology, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and University of Missouri-Columbia. The conference dates are June 28-30, 2022, continuing the Tuesday-Thursday format of the most recent conferences. Our theme, “Environmental Engineering at the Confluence,” is inclusive of the full breadth of environmental engineering, while providing an opportunity to explore convergence and highlight emerging developments in our field. The program will be organized around four areas of convergence: convergence of education and research, convergence of research in air, water, and soil, convergence of research and action, and convergence of research, practice, and entrepreneurship. We look forward to working with the AEESP community to develop a set of pre-conference workshops to be held on Tuesday June 28, before the opening keynote lecture and a reception of St. Louis barbeque and blues. We are excited to offer new “Meet the Candidate,” “Three Minute Thesis,” and “Early Career Showcase” workshops and poster sessions for doctoral students, postdocs, and early-career professors. The conference website will go live this July with information about workshop proposals, abstract submissions, housing and travel, and key features of the program. The Washington University campus is just 15 minutes from Lambert St. Louis International Airport with easy connections to the airport and downtown by light-rail. Our central location and an array of housing options, including on-campus residence hall accommodations, are designed to make the 2022 conference accessible and affordable. The Washington University campus is adjacent to Forest Park, which hosts the St. Louis Zoo, Art Museum, History Museum, and Science Center; notably admission to each of these institutions is free! We encourage conference attendees to take advantage of Forest Park and the numerous other tourism and recreation opportunities in the St. Louis region.
