The program will be organized around four areas of convergence: convergence of education and research, convergence of research in air, water, and soil, convergence of research and action, and convergence of research, practice, and entrepreneurship. 

The conference team plans to hold events for doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers, assistant professors and mid-career professors at the 2021 conference. A new feature of the 2021 conference will be a “Meet the Candidate” poster session in which doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers about to enter the academic job market will introduce their background, research and teaching plans. Also planned is a poster session for assistant professors who are in the first three years of their positions.
