9th International Phosphorus Workshop – IPW9
The unique trait of the International Phosphorus Workshops (IPW) is the combination of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. The IPW’s arose from the understanding that eutrophication of waters is related to phosphorus management on land, including rural and urban areas, and that combating any phosphorus related problems requires the proper understanding of biogeochemical mechanisms and processes underlying the terrestrial-aquatic phosphorus continuum.
The 9th International Phosphorus Workshop will take place
from 8 to 12 July 2019
in ETH Zurich, Switzerland.
The aims of IPW9 are to gather experts from natural, engineering and social sciences in order to
- Discuss concepts, which drive research and use of phosphorus in our societies;
- Review the progress in knowledge and technology related to phosphorus;
- Define questions for future research and action to solve phosphorus related problems.
These objectives will be addressed in five themes, each from an interdisciplinary perspective, including natural, engineering, socio-economic and political sciences. Novel results and methodologies shall be presented as well as science-to-application case studies.
Registration is required. Further details on registration fees, program and speaker as well as general information can be found on the conference website.
