The symposia on Electrokinetic Remediation have been held for more than a decade. The first was in Albi (France) in 1997, and was followed by eleven more editions that have spread all around the world: Lyngby, Denmark (1999), Karlsruhe, Germany (2001), Mol, Belgium (2003), Ferrara, Italy (2005), Vigo, Spain (2007), Seoul, South Korea (2008), Lisbon, Portugal (2009), Kaohsiung, Taiwan (2010), Utrecht, The Netherlands (2011), Sapporo, Japan (2012) and finally Boston, USA (2013). All of them were attended by a diverse audience representing the engineering and scientific communities with a well-deserved success of participants. We expect to achieve the same success with the 13th edition of this conference (EREM 2014) in Málaga (Spain) and that it will continue in the next edition, expected to be held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (2016).

The first editions of this conference were especially focused on the use of electrokinetic techniques for the remediation of soils contaminated with heavy metals, organic compounds, radioactive waste, etc. In recent years, there is a growing interest in the applicability of the electrokinetic techniques in other areas, especially their use in production processes: water treatment, waste water treatment, mining, food industry, etc. So, we hope that this edition in Málaga will provide a venue to present and discuss new research results concerning electrokinetics, which include but do not limit to: fundamental aspects of electrokinetics, applied research, environmental remediation, modelling and simulation, combined techniques, etc.

University of Málaga

The symposium will be held at the University of Málaga (UMA), a relatively young University that is celebrating in 2013 its 40th anniversary. Málaga is a city located in the south of Spain bathed by the Mediterranean Sea that was founded by the Phoenicians around 770 BC. Nowadays it is the sixth most populous city in Spain, and is the main city of The Costa del Sol, a touristic destination of world renown.

Our University is proud to host the 13th symposium on electrokinetic remediation (EREM2014), and kindly invite you to participate at the conference. You can contact us at
We welcome you and look forward to seeing you in Málaga.

Poster format is A0 portrait (height max 120 cm, width max 85 cm). A poster printing and placing service will be available to those participants that do not like carrying the poster with them for a fee about 25 €/poster. Details will be given in due time.


Oral presentations will be limited to 15 minutes. Session Chairs will also allocate 5 minutes for every speaker introduction and Q&A.
The organizer has set up Microsoft Power Point 2010 in a Windows 7 Professional edition in the session room for oral presentations. It is strongly recommended that all presentations be in Microsoft Power Point (PPTX), windows-based environment.

The conference sessions will be held at the NH hotel of Malaga. Location and arrival details can be found at the Hotel’s web page. Although Malaga has a very good net for visitor’s accommodation, early September is still in the top-touristic season, so we suggest you to book your rooms as soon as possible. The NH Hotel is obviously a convenient place to stay while attending the conference, but there are several optional hotels, some of which are suggested in the Accommodation section of our web site. For instance, the hotels Novotel and IBIS Budget are only 50 meters away from the NH, while the hotels Molina Lario and Malaga Palacio are about 800 meters (10 min walk).

Reception and Welcome will take place at the NH facilities on Sunday 7th. The desk for documents retrieval and registration will also be open on Monday and Tuesday.
