Welcome to CleanUp 2013, the 5th International Contaminated Site Remediation Conference –
Australia's premier conference for the contaminated site and remediation industry.
CleanUp is moving
CleanUp 2013 is moving to Melbourne! This change in venue constitutes the next stage in the conference’s extraordinary growth after four successful events in Adelaide.
CleanUp 2013 will be held at the Crown Melbourne on 15-18 September – please keep an eye on the website for registration and accommodation details.
The conference themes have been finalised and can be viewed
Late abstracts - The Organising committee are happy to receive abstracts past the advertised deadline;
