The in-person conference will be held June 28-30, 2022

The 2022 Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors (AEESP) Research and Education Conference will be hosted by Washington University in St. Louis together with Missouri University of Science & Technology, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and University of Missouri-Columbia.

The AEESP Research and Education Conference will address the most critical environmental challenges of this era. Its theme, “Environmental Engineering and Science at the Confluence” is designed to span the field of environmental engineering, to explore convergence and to highlight emerging developments. The theme also ties in geographically with St. Louis located at the confluence of the Mississippi, Missouri and Illinois Rivers.

The conference will draw on convergence in environmental engineering and science as an organizing framework for workshops, plenary talks, panel discussions, and oral and poster presentations.

The conference will encompass four areas of convergence:

  • in education and research
  • in air, water and soil
  • of research and action
  • of research, practice and entrepreneurship.
