AIMS & SCOPE

Currently, the Euro-Mediterranean region is facing not only significant political, economical, and social challenges, but also an ever-growing environmental degradation that have made environmental and resource protection an increasingly critical issue. These issues have re-energized the debate on the Euro-Mediterranean integration process through concrete cooperative projects in many sectors, especially those concerned with environmental awareness, assessment, and improvement. This integration process is intended to reduce the development gap between the northern and southern coasts of the Mediterranean and to create new and closer political, economical, social, cultural, and, most importantly, scientific ties between these two shores founded on common concerns.

In this context, and with the specific aim to promote Euro-Mediterranean scientific partnership so as to develop and integrate environmental research in the region, a group of Euro-Mediterranean scientists have recently launched the Euro-Mediterranean Journal for Environmental Integration. under the auspices of ‘‘Springer’’. The journal, supported and hosted by the University of Sfax, Tunisia and the Association UNIVERSITY & Environment (AUE), offers a scientific platform for presenting and discussing the latest advances in research with a focus on emerging environmental issues and challenges in the Euro-Mediterranean region. This first international journal from the Euro-Mediterranean region, encompassing all disciplines of the environmental sciences, seeks to give more concrete expression to the Euro-Mediterranean integration process. It aims to supplement existing North–South programs and agreements with a new multilateral scientific program with a particular emphasis on the environmental vulnerability and proactive remediation of the Euro-Mediterranean region.

 

To further strengthen Euro-Mediterranean environmental integration, the Editors of the Euro-Mediterranean Journal for Environmental Integration have decided, in close collaboration with “Springer”, to launch the 1st Euro-Mediterranean Conference for Environmental Integration (EMCEI). The conference aims to gather new research contributions from all disciplines of environmental sciences by many Euro-Mediterranean scientists from diverse backgrounds, in particular from the geo- and bio-environmental sciences and engineering, and thus make an essential contribution towards ensuring that science and knowledge contribute to the promotion of a more sustainable environment for the Euro-Mediterranean region.

 

TOPICS

The Committee of EMCEI invites research papers on all cross-cutting themes of the environmental sciences and engineering, principally focusing on the following major topics:

  • Topic 1. Innovative Approaches & Methods for Environmental Sustainability
  • Topic 2. Environmental Risk Assessment, Bioremediation, Ecotoxicology & Environmental Safety
  • Topic 3. Water Resource Assessment, Planning, Protection & Management
  • Topic 4. Environmental Engineering & Management
  • Topic 5. Natural Resources (Characterization, Assessment, Management & Valorisation)
  • Topic 6. Intelligence Techniques in Renewable Energy (Biomass, Wind, Waste, Solar)
  • Topic 7. Sustainable Management of Marine Environment & Coastal Areas
  • Topic 8. Remote Sensing & GIS for Geo-Environmental Investigations
  • Topic 9. Environmental Impacts of Geo/Natural Hazards (Earthquakes, Landslides, Volcanic & Marine Hazards))
  • Topic 10. Environmental Health Sciences (Natural & Social Impacts on Human Health)
