****************ST. LAWRENCE ECOSYSTEM CONFERENCE BACKGROUND****************

This is the second call for papers for the 9th Annual International
Conference
on the St. Lawrence River Ecosystem, to be hosted by the St. Lawrence River
Institute
in partnership with Queen's University.

This year's conference theme on Brownfield Developments highlights the
challenges that all communities in the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River
ecosystems face in revitalizing waterfronts and nearby lands affected by
past industrial and other human activities. Issues relating to this topic
range from Bill C56 legislation governing Brownfields,  risk assessment and
remediation of contaminated sediments and waterfront lands to assessing
appropriate land uses for Brownfield sites. We invite scientists,
specialist, land developers, students and  managers to present their
research on this and other topics relevant to the Great
Lakes & St. Lawrence River Ecosystem.  This three-day event will be held on
May 6-7-8th, 2002 at the NavCanada Conference & Training Centre in
Cornwall, Ontario, Canada.
