Dear Colleagues and Friends,
The Ministry of Environment of the Slovak Republic and the Slovak Environment Agency is delighted to invite you to participate in the


The conference will be held from

8 to 10 October 2018 in Banská Bystrica, Slovak Republic.

Following three previous successful editions of the International Conference CONTAMINATED SITES in 2013, 2015 and 2016 we have a great pleasure to welcome participants from all over the world again – now in the heart of the Slovak Republic in Banská Bystrica.

On the contrary to the last International Conference CONTAMINATED SITES 2016, which was organised on the occasion of the Slovak Presidency of the Council of the European Union in Bratislava, this year’s conference has been organised as an activity of the Slovak Presidency of The Visegrad Group 2018/2019 and will be a unique opportunity to provide an outstanding setting for all participants including scientists, researchers, students, company representatives and policy makers to share their projects, scientific experiences, innovations and ideas about contaminated sites.

We are looking forward to making the conference an unforgettable scientific and social event together.

See you in Banská Bystrica in October 2018!
Vlasta Jánová
Ministry of Environment of the Slovak Republic
