Abstracts are due March 1
The goal of the
symposium is to encourage submissions that attempt to bridge the
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.
The deadline for submission of the standard abstract (format below)
is March 1. Plan on giving an 18-22 minute talk, with 2 minutes for
questions. The exact length of your presentation will depend upon
abstracts submitted. Submitting early
is encouraged. The speaker schedule will be posted on or about March 3. Please submit your abstract as an email attachment to brameS@clemson.edu.

(3) font is Time 12 point,
(4) first paragraph is not indented

Abbreviated Example: (modified from the 1999 symposium)
Continuous Sand-Iron Reaction Wall for Groundwater Remediation
Clark, Lisa M., email@example.com, RMT, Greenville, SC ; and Elizabeth Rowan, RMT, Nashville, TN
a pre-acquisition audit of a former industrial property in South Carolina
identified a number of environmental risks which led to the discovery
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
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
The thin upper (water table) aquifer is comprised primarily of silty to sandy
