CLEAN WATERWAYS will focus on improving oil and hazardous materials spill prevention and response on and around inland river systems. Our goal is to serve the spill response industry by hosting a forum that facilitates an open exchange of ideas, case studies and best practices for stakeholders from industry, government, environmental, emergency planning and response industries throughout maritime, facilities, rail, and pipeline.
The CLEAN WATERWAYS program is developed by a government/industry-based committee of approximately 40 industry professionals. All abstracts are reviewed for content and relevance by the committee and are selected by consensus.
What puts your abstract in a favorable light?
What will likely get your abstract rejected?
