Welcome

Dear colleagues,
The 2nd Euro-Mediterranean Conference for Environmental Integration (EMCEI) aims to gather high-quality, original research papers for publication following peer review in topical collections (special issues) of the Euro-Mediterranean Journal for Environmental Integration and other Springer journals on various multidisciplinary topics linked to the evolution and development of the Euro-Mediterranean environment in the past, present, and future (see Special Issues). The main objectives of the conference are to support research and innovation, to promote the exchange of scientific knowledge, and to foster collaboration among Euro-Mediterranean communities. The conference participants will have an opportunity to attend several keynote presentations on new indicators and directions in research, development and innovations in the multidisciplinary fields of the environmental sciences. To this end, several high-profile Euro-Mediterranean scientists will participate in this conference (see Keynote Speakers). Moreover, a social and cultural program is planned, where, participants can take a little time out to explore the wonders of the historical sites of Tunisia (see Social Program).

We invite you to come to Tunisia and contribute to and participate in an exciting conference in a stimulating environment!

Mitigation of Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Landfills: A tool to help southern Mediterranean countries close illegal waste dumps 

13 October 2019
09:45–10:30  

Open or illegal waste dumpsites represent a health and environmental emergency in the south Mediterranean region. Eventhough, closing of dumpsites is a central component for the Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) in this region, it is a financial challenge for most of these countries. In terms of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, open dumpsites will account for 8-10 % of the global anthropogenic GHG emissions by 2025. The main objective of this plenary is to present a methodology based on carbon credit protocols for South Mediterranean countries to finance the placement of soil covers to close their illegal waste dumpsites. The implementation of the methodology will lead to a reduction in GHG emissions and protects the geo-environment near these illegal waste dumps.

New insights into sustainable water management in regions of water scarcity

13 October 2019
11:00–11:45  

The twenty-first century is the century of grand challenges in many societal fields. One grand challenge involves providing access to clean water, especially in regions of water scarcity. In fact, more deaths are caused by the lack of clean water than wars. Furthermore, water is one of the core essential and basic necessity for economic growth. Hence, water reuse and recycling have emerged as an absolute necessity for adaptation to the transformations of the twenty-first century. On another side, valuable resources (e.g. plant nutrients, organic matter, minerals, etc.) are found in impaired waters and their recovery has become a necessity to protect the environment, create values and lower overall treatment cost. However, the outdated approaches and technologies and incomplete processes for water treatment and resources recovery should be substituted by new and more promising ones. In this regard, emerging membrane technology may offer solutions to this challenge. This plenary talk will give insights into the impending crisis posed by water stress and the potentials of membrane technology in sustainable water management.

How to prepare a successful scientific paper

13 October 2019
11:45–12:30 

Publication must be seen as an important, if not the most important, part of the research process. However, writing research papers for academic journals is not easy and is also very competitive. After producing data and generating ideas from your research, how do you write a clear and concise paper that attracts the attention of journal editors? How should you prepare a cover letter? How should you respond to reviewer reports? A Senior Publishing Editor from Springer Nature in Heidelberg, Germany shares his advice during three hours on how to effectively write and structure your paper, prepare a cover page and respond to reviewers’ comments.

Social Program

Euro-Mediterranean Musicology

To celebrate the closure of the 2nd Euro-Mediterranean Conference for Environmental Integration on Saturday evening, October 12th, we are delighted to announce that we have lined up a particularly brilliant and varied evening of Euro-Mediterranean music for you, performed by gifted local musicians… Wishing you lots of fun!
 

Guided Tours

We are also planning a half-day guided tour of old city Sousse and a visit to the Mediterranean village Sidi Bou Said on Sunday, October 13th after lunch at 2 pm.  

The two hour tour of old city Sousse includes many of the major sites of the medina (old town) of Sousse, one of the finest examples of Arab architecture in Tunisia, preserved almost completely unchanged throughout the centuries.

The half day visit to the Mediterranean village Sidi Bou Said will continue to amaze you throughout your entire trip. The entire town is located on top of a steep cliff north of Tunis, which overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. The view from Sidi Bou Said is absolutely phenomenal. The entire village is simply beautiful, with flowers draped from almost every wall and doorway, and beautiful flowing vines hanging throughout the entire area.

Useful information

Please take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance before travelling. ATMs are widely available in Tunisia though they don’t always work.

Almost all ATMs will accept Visa cards, and many will also accept Maestro cards for cash withdrawals.

Credit and debit cards are accepted in some but not all of the larger shops, restaurants and hotels. 1 Tunisian Dinar = 1/3 EUR The temperature drops into the realms of warm to mild in Tunisia’s Mediterranean resorts during November.

With an average maximum temperature of 20°C, Tunisia in November is heading for its cool, wet, winter season, but is still very sunny.

November is a very pleasant time to travel to Tunisia. November is also a good month for excursions into the southern desert regions of Tunisia, which remain dry, but offer bearable daytime temperatures, although nights are exceedingly cold.

Discover Port El Kantaoui, Sousse - Tunisia

Port El Kantaoui has one of the best known marinas in the Mediterranean.

A charming pleasure port, with its typical Moorish architecture and hustle and bustle along its quays, constitutes an attractive touristic pole where good living and relaxation are the predominating features.

It is located in the centre of the coastal touristic area of Sousse with its numerous hotel and structures dedicated to entertainment and leisure activities of the holidaymakers. At a distance of 12 km from this marina is the town of Sousse, a famous seaside resort of the Tunisian Sahel. It was founded during the Phoenician era and was known as “Hadrumetum”. It then became an important town of the Roman province and then of the Aghlabid dynasty. This port town, today known as the « Pearl of the Sahel » is inviting you to visit its museums and various historical sites. Its medina and its typical alleys which display its ancestral architecture, colours and local handicrafts, have been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The whole Sahel region, between the littoral and inland, yields a large portion of Tunisian heritage treasures throughout its history, with remarkable archeological sites such as Lamta or El Djem and its famous coliseum which hosts an international festival of classical music in summer.
