Opening Remarks: Mike Cook, Program Director, Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation, US EPA

I. Adaptive Management in Land Revitalization
Techniques of adaptive management, developed to deal with uncertainty and change in ecosystem management, can be used to advantage in long-term stewardship of contaminated sites.
Panelists: Jonathan Z. Cannon, John Pendergrass.

II. Systems, Decision and Risk Analyses for Remediation Site Recycling
This session addresses use of tools and methods from engineering, economics, decision theory, finance, enterprise modeling, risk management, and systems analysis to the management of portfolios of remediation sites. The aim of portfolio management is adaptive learning for the discovery and maximization of opportunities for reuse. Application to EPA's Superfund and similar large-scale programs of remediation sites will be discussed.
Panelists: Peter Beling, Jim Lambert, Mark White, Igor Linkov.

Keynote Speaker: Marianne Lamont Horinko, Assistant Administrator, Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response, US EPA

III. Superfund Sites are Real Places
Designing the next evolution of the post-industrial landscape requires more than a risk assessment. Integrating ecological integrity and cultural values renews the site as a vital place within its community.
Panelists: Julie Bargmann, Daniel Bluestone, Niall Kirkwood.

IV. Building Consensus for Reuse Planning: Cleaning up the Other Mess
This panel examines how different communities have built broad stakeholder and community consensus for reuse and how land-use planning ties together the many threads of contaminated site recovery.
Panelists: Bruce Dotson, Frank Dukes, Frances Costanzi, Penny Nigh.

V. Practical Applications: The Law and Economics of Contaminated Site Redevelopment
Distinguished practitioners reflect on their experience in redeveloping sites in light of the research presented at the conference.
Panelists: George Overstreet (moderator), Michael Hancox, Jennifer Hernandez, Eleanor White.

Dinner Speaker: Tom Adams, Office of Environmental Management, US Department of Energy

Saturday, April 3, 2004:

VI. Benefits of Superfund Remediation and Reuse
This session focuses on activities conducted under the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), and the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) to clean up and reuse properties on which hazardous wastes have been released. However, it turns the tables on the usual conversation about Superfund and focuses on the benefits of these actions, not the costs (about which much has already been written). The presenters will discuss some of the emerging findings from two EPA initiatives, the Superfund Benefits Analysis (SBA), and a variety of studies of local economic impacts at specific Superfund sites.
Panelists: David Slutzky (moderator), Alex Farrell, Michael Hancox, Robin Jenkins.

VII. Remediation for Reuse
This session will highlight technical remediation approaches to maximize the likelihood of successful reuse. Projects and methodologies that demonstrate close integration of remediation design and reuse planning will be shared, including technical approaches to streamline remediation and minimize the time before sites are available for productive reuse.
Panelists: Teresa Culver, Dean Hargens, Marwan Sadat.
