AEESP 2023 – June 20-23, 2023 – Boston, MA

Hosted at Northeastern University by a planning team of New England universities

The Conference Planning Committee was so pleased to welcome over 800 participants to the 2023 AEESP Research and Education Conference in Boston, MA in June 2023, hosted by Northeastern University jointly with a large team of universities in New England including University of Massachusetts-Amherst, University of Massachusetts-Boston, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Tufts University, University of Connecticut, University of Maine, University of New Hampshire, and University of Rhode Island. Conference activities were held Tuesday, June 20 through Friday, June 23, 2023.

The conference theme, “Responding Together to Global Challenges”, reflected the many contributions environmental scientists and engineers are making to address several concerning global, historical, and emerging challenges to living in a health, safe, and just society.  The attendees contributed to an exciting technical program highlighting responses to specific challenges of a changing climate, emerging environmental quality and human health threats, aging infrastructure and networks, marginalization of communities, and evolving education demands.

The conference schedule included the conventional and highly sought-after workshops and technical presentations, networking events, career development opportunities, and community outreach.  Unique elements of this year’s conference included a career fair and outreach activities on Conference Day 1, a gala and awards dinner on Day 2 at the New England Aquarium, and a series of field trips in and around Boston on Friday June 23 on Friday.  The workshop program is available here, and the final science program included almost 240 oral talks and 335 posters!
