Submitting Abstracts


Abstracts are due Feb 24

The goal of the symposium is to encourage submissions that attempt to bridge the gap between research and industry. Towards this, we encourage presentations in a wide array of formats, from case studies of previous or ongoing projects given by working professionals to applied and theoretical research results given by academicians.

Please indicate your choice of poster or oral presentation when you send in your abstract.

Abstract Submission Guidelines
Plan on giving an 18-22 minute talk, with 2 minutes for questions. The exact length of your presentation will depend upon the number of abstracts submitted. Submitting early is encouraged. The speaker schedule will be posted about a week after abstracts are due. Please submit your abstract as an email attachment to brameS@clemson.edu. The desired file format is MS Office 2010/2013. If that is not available, send me what you have and I will try to open it.

Note to Presenters: We require that you submit a copy of your presentation for Web posting before the Symposium.

Please read: Guidelines for Presenters

(1) Title: only the first letter of each appropriate word is capitalized and in bold. Please do no make the authors or title all bold!
(2) Author list: First author has last name first and bold, all other authors are first name - last name and in bold. There are two acceptable fomats for the author section. The first one shown below should be used if applicable. Only use the second version when the author affiliations are in mixed order.

Beebe, Alex, donaldb@g.clemson.edu, and J.W. Castle, Department of Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences, Clemson University, Clemson, South Carolina; and J.H. Rodgers Jr., School of Agricultural, Forest, and Environmental Sciences, Clemson University, Clemson, South Carolina

Or (if the authors affiliations are in mixed order, you can use superscript notation)

Beebe, D.A.1, donaldb@g.clemson.edu, J.H. Rodgers Jr.2, and J.W. Castle1,
1Department of Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences, Clemson University, Clemson, South Carolina
2School of Agricultural, Forest, and Environmental Sciences, Clemson University, Clemson, South Carolina

(3) font is Time 12 point,
(4) first paragraph is not indented
(5) succeeding paragraphs are indented

(4) total number of words around 500. This length is more of a guide - don't worry about exceeding this.
(6) extended abstracts are also welcome. Please limit the text to 3000 words and 2 figures.

Abbreviated Example: (modified from the 1999 symposium)

Continuous Sand-Iron Reaction Wall for Groundwater Remediation

Clark, Lisa M., lisa.clark@rmtinc.com, RMT, Greenville, SC ; and Elizabeth Rowan, RMT, Nashville, TN

In 1992, a pre-acquisition audit of a former industrial property in South Carolina identified a number of environmental risks which led to the discovery of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in soil and groundwater at the site. Closure activities were initiated in potential source areas, and hydrogeologic investigations were conducted to evaluate aquifer conditions and constituent concentrations in groundwater.
       The site is located in the Coastal Plain physiographic province of South Carolina. Three aquifers -- a water table aquifer, an intermediate aquifer, and a deep aquifer - underlie the site. The upper two aquifers are impacted by chlorinated hydrocarbons. The thin upper (water table) aquifer is comprised primarily of silty to sandy fill material.
