CIRI's Spring 2016 Science & Research Symposium: first call for papers
The Cleaning Industry Research Institute International, planning for its Spring 2016 Cleaning Science & Research Symposium 'Cleaning Science, Health, Environment, and The Clean Standard: Field Testing, New Research, Innovative Methods, Findings, and Challenges' (date, details, and location to be announced), has made its first call for research papers showing application of cleaning science to advance professional cleaning practice and the public welfare.
CIRI invites proposals for topics and/or papers for its symposium following the successful structure of prior research symposia, including presenting:
* Cutting edge research
* Recent findings
* Innovative processes
* New data
* Field experiences
* Scientific review papers
* Fundamentals of cleaning science
* New approaches to cleaning science
* Applications and importance of cleaning science to health and indoor environments including schools, hospitality, childcare, healthcare, and other markets
* Applications and importance of cleaning science to overall building and facilities maintenance, cleaning and/or restoration.
Proposed title, authors and brief summary, abstract or outline of the topic or paper for presentation should be emailed not later than October 2015 to Steven M. Spivak, CIRI advisory chair and University of Maryland, School of Engineering professor emeritus at: E: [email protected]
Steven is being assisted by other CIRI science and research leaders and submissions will be subject to confidential internal CIRI review for content, rigor and applicability. Those selected shall be from among themes noted below, although other proposed conference themes are encouraged.
Proposed Conference Themes
- Latest evidence on cleaning effectiveness
- Fluorescent markers and their role in cleaning monitoring
- The role and experiences with ATP in cleaning monitoring
- New technologies for managing cleaning and restoration
- The cost impact(s) of improved cleaning & hygiene management
- Impact of cleaning effectiveness on health outcomes
- Best practice management of cleaning processes using the ISSA Clean Standard: K-12 (2014) as well as Institutional and Commercial facilities (2015)
- Cleaning sustainability and Green Cleaning
- Betterment and impacts from improved cleaning processes
- Do new 'natural' alternative cleaning technologies have any evidence to support their use?
- What is the evidence in supporting the processes of cleaning in the context of natural disasters and disaster management?
The event, which has received consistent praise, respect and support from the greater cleaning community - consists of a two-day midweek programme: a first afternoon and evening welcome reception, followed by 1.5 days of informative meetings with time for questions, discussions, and breakout sessions. It may include an additional one - two days for training, examination and certification on field practices and business applications of The Clean Standard.
Updates on The Clean Standard - developed by the International Sanitary Supply Association (ISSA) and CIRI to define measurable targets for better, healthier cleaning outcomes in K-12 (2014) as well as Institutional and Commercial facilities (2015) - will be a special focus, facilitating the better application of processes and products to optimise indoor environments in specific markets through effective cleaning and measured outcomes.
