Geosyntec Staff Contributing to the SERDP & ESTCP Symposium 2018

Geosyntec professionals will be making significant technical contributions at the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) and the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) Symposium 2018: Enhancing Department of Defense's (DoD's) Mission Effectiveness at the Washington Hilton Hotel in Washington D.C. on November 27 – 29, 2018.

Professional staff with poster presentations are: Helen Dawson, Ph.D. (Washington, D.C.), Jason Conder, Ph.D. (California), Rula Deeb, Ph.D., BCEEM, PMP (California), and David Reynolds, Ph.D., P.Eng. (Ontario).

Geosyntec staff attending the conference are: Stephen Foster, Ph.D. (Colorado); Jennifer Arblaster (Vermont); Helen Dawson, Ph.D., Neal Durant, Ph.D. (Washington D.C.); Jason Conder, Ph.D., Rula Deeb, Ph.D., BCEEM, PMP, Michael Kavanaugh, Ph.D., P.E., BCEE (California); David Major, Ph.D., BCES (Ontario); Lisa V. (Smith) Goode, Ph.D., P.E. (Oregon); and Heather Rectanus, Ph.D., James Wang, Ph.D., P.E. (Maryland).

The SERDP & ESTCP Symposium is a nationally recognized conference focusing on the DoD's priority environmental and installation energy issues. The 2018 Symposium will highlight SERDP and ESTCP's recent efforts to enhance mission capabilities, reduce costs in times of increasing fiscal constraints, and improve environmental and energy performance. The Symposium brings together environmental and energy researchers and technology developers with the defense user and regulatory communities to showcase cutting edge environmental technologies and ideas. The 2018 Symposium will offer 16 technical sessions, a number of short courses, more than 450 technical poster presentations, and exhibitors from funding and partnering organizations. There will be a variety of networking opportunities for the more than 1,000 attendees from the military services; academic and research institutions; private sector technology and environmental firms; and Federal, state, and local regulatory and policy making organizations.

SERDP and ESTCP are the Department of Defense's environmental research programs, harnessing the latest science and technology to improve DoD's environmental performance, reduce costs, and enhance and sustain mission capabilities. The Programs respond to environmental technology requirements that are common to all of the military Services, complementing the Services' research programs. SERDP and ESTCP promote partnerships and collaboration among academia, industry, the military Services, and other Federal agencies. They are independent programs managed from a joint office to coordinate the full spectrum of efforts, from basic and applied research to field demonstration and validation.
