The AEESP Research and Education Conference is the flagship event for members to exchange information on novel research and educational activities, as well as develop professional competencies. It serves as a venue for the exchange of information among academics and practitioners, particularly relating to the advancement of innovative research and the preparation of students for professional practice in environmental engineering and science. AEESP Conferences are held every other year and are balanced with respect to content on research and education.
The University of Michigan is leading a consortium of universities in the Great Lakes Region, all with significant affiliations to AEESP (Michigan State University, Michigan Technological University, the University of Notre Dame, the University of Toledo, and Wayne State University) to host the 2017 AEESP Research and Education Conference in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In a diversion from the past and attempt to be more family-friendly, the 2017 meeting will begin with workshops on Tuesday, June 20 and with the conference on Wednesday and Thursday, June 21-22. The theme of the conference is Advancing Healthy Communities through Environmental Engineering and Science. We will emphasize a transdisciplinary program that highlights our traditional disciplinary skills but in new ways and in collaboration with complimentary disciplines and tools, such as: systems analysis, public health, governance and policy, economics, and social sciences.
