4th  International Conference on Bangladesh Environment (ICBEN)-2020

A BAPA-BEN Conference

December 26-27, 2020

[Please note that the timing of ICBEN-2020 (December 26-27 Bangladesh Standard Time) was conceptualized for an in-person conference located in Bangladesh. Due to COVID-19 and the switch to a virtual mode, the beginning of the conference now conflicts with Christmas (Dec 25) for our participants in North America and Europe. We apologize for the conflict and will make every attempt to accommodate speakers and participants joining us from these locations. Thank you for your understanding.]
