Sardinia Symposium is back!

Following the success of the previous edition, which saw the enthusiastic participation of 354 delegates from 46 countries, we are pleased to announce SARDINIA 2023 – 19th International Symposium on Waste Management and Sistainable Landfilling to be held in person from 9th to 13th October 2023 in the traditional venue of the Forte Village Resort in Santa Margherita di Pula, Italy.

The Sardinia Symposia are a biennial event organized by the International Waste Working Group (IWWG), with the scientific support of the Universities of Padova, BOKU and the Technical Universities of Luleå and Hamburg.
Founded in 1987, the conference usually gathers more than 700 participants from all around the world, with more than 400 papers presented at each edition, making the Sardinia Symposium the most important solid waste management conference in the world.

The 18th edition held in 2021 has been delivered in a hybrid format and, after these challenging 2 years, the Symposium is now back in its traditional format, face-to-face, in person. All the speakers will deliver their presentation in person and delegates will experience all the usual highlights of Sardinia Symposia including leading keynote presentations, parallel oral sessions, workshops, active labs and other practical activities, discussion forums, poster presentations, commercial exhibition, b2b meetings, outstanding networking opportunities and exciting social events!
