The “ESST2023 | Symposium on Environmental Science and Sustainable Technology” on 26 – 27 October 2023, is accepting abstract submissions until 16 July, 2023 (mew extended deadline).

With increasing environmental problems such as air, water and soil pollution that threaten both human health and the environment, this symposium aims to bring together researchers, experts and practitioners from academia, industry and government to share their latest research findings and discuss the latest developments in the field of Environmental science and Sustainable technology. The theme of this year’s symposium is “Bridging Macao and the Greater Bay Area” with focus on addressing environmental challenges faced by Macao and the Greater Bay Area (GBA). The symposium will provide a platform for experts to share and discuss effective and sustainable technologies to tackle these challenges and to establish new collaborations between Macao and the GBA researchers to develop sustainable solutions for a better future. We invite you to join us in this exciting opportunity to connect, collaborate, and contribute to the development of sustainable solutions.

The two-day symposium will include invited speeches and oral presentations selected from abstract submissions. Eminent scientists from the region will be invited as well as practitioners from industries in Macau and the GBA. Three poster sessions will be arranged for sharing latest and on-going projects. The mobile exhibition of “Macau Mangroves & Ocean Plastic Pollution” will be on display throughout the symposium.
