12 th International UFZ-Deltares Conference on Groundwater – Soil – Systems and Water Resource Management

International Conference

Lieu et date : Barcelona 16-19 April 2013


AquaConSoil is organized by the HelmHoltz Center for Environmental Research in Germany and Deltares of the Netherlands, along with the Catalan Waste Agency, IRTA-GIRO and the University of Barcelona. It receives support from the Government of Catalonia and the Barcelona City Council.


The twelfth edition of AquaConSoil, the top European congress on groundwater-soil-systems and water resource management, will be held in Barcelona from 16 to 19 April 2013. The program of conferences will focus on water management in arid and semi-arid zones, as experts consider this a key topic for Mediterranean countries, and will incorporate topics related to technological land usage like geothermic energy, capturing and storing CO2 and green engineering related to urban environments.

Conference themes

A. Using functions of soil – water systems Soil, sediment and groundwater as a resource of valuable materials (and waste cycles) ; Urban (ground)water management ; Thermal energy in soil-water systems ; Role of soil-water systems in climate change adaptation and mitigation ; Eco-engineering

B. Soil and water resources management in water scarcity regions Assessment of quantity, quality and vulnerability ; Solutions for salinization of soil-water Systems

C Assessment and monitoring Fate, transport and risks ; Developments in site investigation and Monitoring ; Effects of climate change and/or groundwater management ; Ecosystem services assessment and monitoring

D Remediation technologies for soil, groundwater and sediment Technologies for (in situ) remediation and management of soil contamination : ; Costs and management  ; Sustainable remediation / Environmental footprint ; Sector specific cases of soil contamination management

E Concepts and policies Soil-water systems policy and regulation ; Regional management of soil-water Systems ; Sustainable use of the subsurface ; Resource efficiency
