Welcome to 2016 Changshu China the 10th International Wetlands Conference!

The INTECOL International Wetlands Conference is the largest, most influential international conference in the field of wetland science and applications. It is held every four years with the support of the INTECOL Wetland Working Group (WWG). We are pleased to announce that the 10th INTECOL International Wetlands Conference will be held in Changshu, China, on September 19-24, 2016.

This conference will provide a platform to review advances in research on wetland biodiversity and ecosystem management as well as the functional roles of wetlands in wastewater treatment, ecosystem services and wise use. The conference program will include various symposiums, workshops and open sessions related to the conference theme, plus a one day mid-conference excursion.

To promote collaboration and interdisciplinary dialogue, we invite you to propose symposiums with specific topics. Each symposium should have two conveners and six speakers (15 min presentations plus 5 min discussions). We anticipate supporting the registration and accommodations for the two conveners of a number of high-quality symposiums, to be selected by the International Scientific committee. We also invite you to propose workshops on any aspects of wetland engineering, cultural values and technique applications which will provide an exchange of information withother professionals. The proposals should include the following:

· The title of the symposium/workshop

· The names of the conveners, with short 100-200 word CVs

· A 300-500 word motivation explaining the theme and objectivesof the symposium/workshop
