Call for Abstracts now open

The ICARD 2021 Scientific Program Committee invites prospective authors to submit titles and abstracts for oral presentations and posters by 25 September 2020.

The theme of ICARD 2021 “Proactive measures and lasting outcomes” reflects that the sooner work starts on implementing a well-designed, effective ARD control strategy the more likely it is that that there will be sustainable benefits. While the operational life of most mines is usually measured in years or decades, the effective life of control strategies and remediation works have to be measured in centuries.

Submissions are encouraged across the wide range of topics of relevance to the prevention and management of ARD.

Abstract submission deadline: 25 September 2020, midnight AEST
