1st Announcement and Call for Papers

The Landfill 2019 Conference & Exhibition will be held at the Caledon Hotel, Spa, Casino and Entertainment Centre on the 19th and 20th of September 2019. Landfill 2019 will seek to bring the Landfill and Alternative Waste Treatment industries together to learn about the latest techniques and developments - as well as to provide a forum for the exchange of knowledge and ideas. Although sponsorship packages are available, the Landfill 2019 Conference is a conference supported by an exhibition and social programme rather than being a trade expo.

IWMSA Landfill conferences typically attract 100-150 delegates with 10-15 stands/booths in the accompanying exhibition area. Delegates have a range of capability and expertise in various relevant fields including: Landfill construction and operations; waste transportation; civil and geotechnical engineering; geosynthetics; waste compaction; waste treatment equipment; alternative treatment/management technologies (such as refuse derived fuels, waste to energy plants and funding models).

This conference will attract decision makers from government and the private sector, prospective users, academics, vendors and suppliers, policy makers and representatives of various national organizations working in the arena of Landfill and Alternative Waste Treatment.

Submissions close 5 July 2019

You are requested to submit proposals for Academic Panels, Executive/Industry Forums, Lightening Talks, Podium Presentations or Tutorials, and Workshops - please send your proposals to Reon Pienaar Reon@jpce.co.za.  Proposals should take the form of a summary consisting of not more than 300 words. See below for more details.

Academic Panels – No Charge – No Branding

Academic panels bring together researchers, for an interactive discussion on a specific topic among panel speakers and the audience.  Panels provide opportunities for the practicing professionals to both share and learn about the latest ideas, trends, and products and innovations of particular interest to the industry.

Academic panel sessions are 30-45 minute moderated discussions. A panel submission must include:

  • A Panel Organizer with a commitment to arrange the specific topic of interest;
  • 3 to 4 Panellists with a commitment to join in under the specific topic.

Before the submission of a panel proposal, it is expected that the Panel Organizer contacts all the envisaged Panellists in order to get their agreement to serve on the panel.  The Panel Organizer will serve as moderator during the panel.

The following structure is proposed.  The organizer/chair has to establish a few questions to be addressed by the participants.  The chair gives a presentation up to 5 minutes at the beginning of the panel, to introduce the topic.  Participants should address the questions posed. With this scheme, there will be enough time for discussion in the panel (which is the main goal of a panel).

The panel proposal should include:

  • Title for the proposed panel
  • Name, affiliation, contact information, and short biography of the Panel Organizer
  • Motivation and background for the panel, indicating topics to be discussed as well.
  • Names, affiliations, and short biography of the Panellists intended to invite.

Submissions close 5 July 2019

Executive/Industry Forums – ZAR 7 500 - Branded

The Executive/Industry Forum will follow the same format as the Academic Panels.  The major difference is that theOrganisation/Company sponsoring the slot, may choose panellists, topics and questions. The panellists will be restricted to company executives, like CEOs and CTOs, who will give their vision on the forum topic to the audience.

Submissions close 5 July 2019

Lightning Talks – No Charge – No Branding

Lightning Talks are short 6 minutes talks on current topics.  The point of a Lightning Talk is not to give a detailed talk, but rather to briefly present a main idea or concept.  The topics acceptable for these talks are any subject that is conference-related. This platform gives an opportunity to those who would not normally present full presentations or who are exploring new areas and wish to share the outcome.

Come to talk about a nifty trick, some thoughts triggered by presentations at the conference, or if you are a student, share the highlight of your thesis project.  The main goal of the talk should be making your point fast and then, we move on to the next talk.  No hard and fast rule about the presentation format, no judgment either.  However, the 6 minutes time limit is strictly enforced, and you will be asked to stop at the end of 6 minutes.

Submissions close 5 July 2019

Podium Presentation – No Charge – No Branding

Podium presentations will have a15 minute duration and will be held during the morning and afternoon coffee-breaks in the Exhibition or in a Conference Room during the conference.  The number will be limited to 6.  These presentations will typically focus on products, services, and solutions offered by companies. In order to maximize attendance, lucky draw prizes should be offered at the end of each presentation (provided by the companies presenting). This form of presentation would also ideally suitethose with a presentation of limited content.
 

Submissions close 5 July 2019

Tutorial – No Charge – No Branding

The tutorial is an interactive method of transferring knowledge seeking to teach and supply information to complete a certain task. Usually lasting 45 - 90 minTutorials are an extended lecture, or series of lectures, intended to give a broad view of a particular area of research, rather than being focused on the speaker's own contributions. The proposal should concisely describe the content and objectives of the tutorial, and must include:

  1. Title of the tutorial;
  2. Name, affiliation, and a short biography of each tutorial speaker/s;
  3. A description of the technical issues that the tutorial will address, emphasizing its timeliness;
