The International Conference on Heavy Metals in the Environment is the oldest and one of the largest conferences on heavy metals which provides an integrated perspective on research, technology and management of all aspects of heavy metals in a trans-disciplinary context. This conference will provide a unique platform for sharing knowledge on the state-of-the-art research activities in all aspects of heavy metals among a broad international scientific community, policy makers and industrial personnel.

ICHMET 2020 will be held as a hybrid event. International presenters who are unable to attend the offline conference can give their presentations by submitting presentation files before the conference.
