An event not to miss in the Mediterranean this year... Mark your calendar for the most comprehensive environmental sciences conference in the Euro-Mediterranean and surrounding regions. The conference will be an occasion to highlight research into potential solutions for environmental concerns and protection requirements on the basis of innovative approaches that contribute to preserving a sustainable environment in the region. The Conference Scientific Committee invites research papers on all cross-cutting themes of earth and environmental sciences, with a main focus on 13 major themes covered by the Euro-Mediterranean Journal for Environmental Integration (see Conference Tracks). The deadline for submission is 15 May 2019. Please read the Author Guidelines before submitting. The accepted contributions to the conference will be published in the proceedings by Springer. The Conference Proceedings of the previous edition has been indexed in the Web of Science.


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 and findings into the activities of related sectors in the region, a group of Euro-Mediterranean scientists have recently launched the Euro-Mediterranean Journal for Environmental Integration. This Springer journal, which started in 2016, has been now indexed in the Web of Science (ISI’s ESCI database). It  offers a scientific platform for presenting and discussing the latest advances in research with a focus on emerging environmental issues and challenges in the region. In particular, this first regional journal from the Euro-Mediterranean, encompassing all disciplines of the earth and environmental sciences, seeks to make societies and decision makers from related sectors aware of the importance of integrating environmental considerations into their respective activities. In this context, the journal provides a scientific forum that promotes the exchange of knowledge and fosters collaborations to improve the consistency of environmental management efforts between the countries of the northern and southern shores of the Mediterranean.

To further strengthen Euro-Mediterranean environmental integration, the Editors of the Euro-Mediterranean Journal for Environmental Integration organize this year, in close collaboration with Springer, the 2nd Euro-Mediterranean Conference for Environmental Integration (EMCEI-2). The conference aims to gather new research contributions from all disciplines of earth and environmental sciences by Euro-Mediterranean scientists from diverse backgrounds, and thus makes an essential contribution towards ensuring that science and knowledge contribute to the promotion of a more sustainable environment for the Euro-Mediterranean region.



The scientific committee of the 2nd EMCEI invites research papers on all cross-cutting themes of the environmental sciences and engineering, with a main focus on the following 13 conference tracks:

  • Track 1. Engineering applications for environmental management
  • Track 2. Process control, simulations and intensification for environmental management
  • Track 3. Ecotoxicology, environmental safety and bioremediation
  • Track 4. Biotechnology for environmental management
  • Track 5. Climate-change-related effects on the environment and ecological systems
  • Track 6. Natural resources, agriculture and the environment
  • Track 7. Smart technologies for environmentally friendly energy production
  • Track 8. Remote sensing and GIS for environmental monitoring and management
  • Track 9. Environmental impacts of natural hazards and environmental risk assessment
  • Track 10. Sustainable management of marine and coastal environments
  • Track 11. Sustainable management of the urban environment
  • Track 12. Sustainable management of the indoor and built environment
  • Track 13. Environmental-change-related impacts on human health
