The 5th International Symposium on Sediment Management (I2SM) will be held in Montréal, Québec, Canada on July 10 to 13, 2016.
Organized by Université de Sherbrooke and the École des Mines de Douai, the event will be held at Montreal Marriott Chateau Champlain.
The management of dredged sediments is a significant issue in the world. Every year, millions of cubic meters are dredged for the maintenance of canals and harbors.
With the shortage in some region of the world of natural resources in many engineering fields, the beneficial reuse of sediments can optimize the management of the natural resources.
In this order, the valorization of dredged materials as a resource constitutes a technical and economical challenge.
The aim of I2SM is to get together academics, professional figures and public agencies involved in sediment issues to review recent advances on sediment management research and engineering aspects.
