Symposium BrochureThank you to all who attended this year's Partners in Environmental Technology Technical Symposium & Workshop held from December 4-6, 2007 in Washington, D.C. The event attracted more than 900 attendees.

Partners in Environmental Technology has become the hallmark of the annual Technical Symposium & Workshop hosted by the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) and the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP). The concept reflects not only the partnership formed by the two host organizations but, more significantly, highlights the many different partnerships that play a pivotal role in the success of federal technology development.

This conference assembled environmental researchers and technology developers with the defense user and regulatory communities to showcase cutting edge environmental technologies and ideas, as well as communicate the most difficult challenges of our defense establishment. Through this process, SERDP and ESTCP strive to provide a forum for users in the field to examine these technologies that may offer solutions to the most pressing problems.

A special thank you to all attendees who completed an Evaluation Form about the event. Your comments are useful in planning future conferences. If you still would like to offer your feedback, you may complete an Evaluation Form and send it back via e-mail, fax, or U.S. mail.

Mark your calendars for next year's Symposium scheduled for December 2-4, 2008 in Washington, D.C.
