About EWMS 2020

The fifth edition of EurAsia Waste Management Symposium, will take place from
26 to 28 October 2020 at YTU Davutpaşa Congress & Cultural Center, Istanbul, Turkey.

EurAsia Waste Management Symposium will provide a comprehensive overview of effective waste management strategies across the Asian and the European regions. Also, the symposium will provide the opportunity to discuss and evaluate the current and future regional waste management strategies and recycling projects face to face, to establish business or research relations and to find global partners for future collaboration. All parties of waste management such as universities, industrial organizations, public institutions and organizations, local governments and legislators are welcome to attend to the symposium in order to share their experiences and to bring a common body of knowledge for the solution of the waste management problems in the region.
All the submitted papers will be peer reviewed by the distinguished members of the Scientific Committee of the Conference. All accepted papers of the conference will be processed for publication in the Environmental Research and Technology, a newly launched open access journal published by Yildiz Technical University.
The symposium will be organized by Yildiz Technical University (YTU), ISTAC Inc., and International Waste Working Group (IWWG) and supported by the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization. The topics of the symposium will include almost all areas of waste management including legislation, collection, transport, treatment, recycle and reuse options for municipal, hazardous, medical, and other waste types. The Symposium will include oral presentations, poster sessions, and specialized workshops.
We hope EurAsia Waste Management Symposium will be the largest event for colleagues to promote exchanges to contribute to development of solid waste management in Asia and Europe.
We would like to invite you to EurAsia Waste Management Symposium 2020
at YTU Congress Center at the meeting point of continents, cultures, arts,
history and science.


Given the ongoing public health crisis, the Organizing Committee moved the 5th EurAsia Waste Management Symposium 2020 to a fully VIRTUAL FORMAT. The presentation format of the accepted submissions will be changed to “Virtual Oral Presentation” and “Virtual Poster Presentation” depending on their status. Please remember that the full-paper submission deadline is extended to 30 September 2020.

Swithcing EWMS 2020 to a fully VIRTUAL FORMAT allowed us to re-open the Call for Papers to EWMS 2020. If you missed the deadline before, you can submit your full-paper or an extended abstract in the required format until 30 September 2020.


Due to many requests from colleagues, the Organizing Committee included a Special Session with New Topics for presentations in EurAsia Waste Management Symposium 2020. A special session including presentations about all areas of Environmental Engineering will be held during EWMS 2020. Submit your full paper before 28 August 2020.
