TRAVEL AND JOINING INSTRUCTIONS
There are three main international airports in Bulgaria: in Sofia (430 km from Sunny Beach), Varna (90 km from Sunny Beach) and Burgas (35 km from Sunny Beach).
There are several different ways to get from Sofia, Varna or Burgas to Sunny Beach.
• by bus: Please note that you can take a bus from Sofia or Varna to Sunny Beach, but there is no public bus service from Burgas Airport to Sunny Beach. To go to the bus station in Sofia or Varna, take a taxi from the airport. It is advisable to ask the taxi driver approximately how much the trip will cost before getting into the car as he may overcharge you later.
There are buses from Sofia or Varna to Burgas on the hour. Take those buses which stop at Sunny Beach or Nesebar. Alternatively, you can travel to Burgas, but then you will have to take another bus to Sunny Beach (45 km away). The journey from Sofia to Sunny Beach is approximately 7 hours and from Varna to Sunny Beach approximately 1 hour 30 min.
• by car: you can order a car from the selected hotels which we offer to book for you. Please inform us by email to send you the necessary information. The hotel will issue an invoice for the amount you pay.
• by taxi: we recommend that you use a taxi from Burgas Airport to Sunny Beach. It will be too expensive to travel by taxi from Sofia or Varna, unless you are a group of three or four.

SOCIAL ACTIVITIES
The social programme is of paramount importance for the success of the symposium. The informal atmosphere of the activities helps you to expand your social contacts with the rest of the participants. You will be informed about the events and times of the social programme additionally. A complete description of the provided activities will be published at http://www.travel-events.info.

FURTHER INFORMATION
Further information will be periodically available on this website. Any queries about the organisation and programme of the symposium should be addressed to Mr Ivan Genov, symposium coordinator and director of Info Invest Ltd, Burgas. Please visit http://www.facebook.com/ivan.genov1

Abstract
Biologically stabilized landfill leachate usually requires further removal of organic substances and ammoniacal-N before final discharge. Chemical oxidation may be a convenient method for removal of organics but does not appear efficient in ammoniacal-N removal. Under the best operational conditions lab-scale application of electrochemical oxidation to treatment of leachate with low BOD/COD ratios and high ammoniacal-N content resulted in 75% COD removal and 100% ammoniacal-N oxidation. Ammoniacal-N oxidation appears to follow chemical oxidation by chlorine and chlorites formed by electrochemical conversion of chlorides in the leachate (1600 mg/l). Further developments on pilot plant are on progress.
Key words: forest floor, surface soil, organic matter, nutrients accumulation, marquis ecosystem

1. INTRODUCTION
Biological stabilization in landfill leachate may be a result of application of pre-treatment strategies, of degradation processes within the landfill and their eventual enhancement or of biological treatment of the leachate. Whatever the case the resulting leachate may still contain high COD values (generally higher than 1000 mg/l), low BOD/COD ratio and significant concentrations of ammoniacal-N and halogenated compounds.

2. FUNDAMENTALS OF CHEMICAL OXIDATION
2.1 Organics and other compounds in biodegraded leachate
The organic content of MSW landfill leachate may vary extensively according to different influencing parameters and can be roughly classified into three main groups (Christensen, 1982; cit. in Kylefors, 1997 ) :

Body text: The body text begins after a blank line from the key words. Do not indent paragraphs. Blank lines should be left only if necessary. Headings in the text are written with Bold capital letters after a blank line, aligned left. They are numbered using Arabic numerals. Subheadings have an initial capital letter and the following small letters in Italics. They use multi-level numbering with Arabic numerals, such as 1.1; 1.1.1; 1.1.2; 1.2; 1.3 etc.

Example:
2. MATERIAL AND METHODS
2.1. Plant material
Aerial parts of Satureja hortensis L., Thymus vulgaris L., Salvia officinalis L. and Mentha piperita L. (Lamiaceae) were obtained from plant culture of the Crop Research Institute, Prague. They were oven-dried at 40 °C for 72 h, stored at room temperature and milled prior to extraction experiments.
2.2. Insects
The housefly Musca domestica L. (Dip., Muscidae), larvae 4th instar and adults 3-4 days old, Spodoptera littoralis (Lep., Noctuidae) (larvae 4th instar, 35 ± 5 mg weight) and Culex quinquefasciatus SAY (Dip.) larvae 4th instar, were obtained from the stock culture maintained in the Crop Research Institute, Dept. of Entomology.
2.3. Plant extracts
Carbon dioxide from pressure bottle was pumped by a compressor to a heated extractor of 150 ml volume and 30 mm I.D. filled with 50 g of savory. The entrainer, ethanol, was pumped by a high-pressure pump and mixed with the CO2 stream to the extractor, which flow rate was adjusted to 1.4 g min-1.

Figures, tables, diagrams and formulas: Figures, tables and diagrams have to be incorporated in the text electronically, irrespective of the programme they have been made with. They can be colour or black-and-white. Before incorporating figures and diagrams in the paper, they have to be saved as a single image. Figures, tables and diagrams break the text and a line is left before and after them. The maximum size of figures, tables and diagrams is 15 x 15 cm. Their orientation is Portrait. The captions are written under them with font size 11 points and centred. The numbers and the text inside are written with Times New Roman, font size 10 points. Formulas are created with the WORD editor or built in as objects if created with other programmes.

2. SPATIAL TECHNOLOGIES AND ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE
Spatial technologies are generally considered Remote Sensing, GIS and GPS, but could also include other related technologies such as navigation systems. They depend on a number of interrelated disciplines and technologies (see figure below.) These technologies are becoming increasing seamless and being utilized both in












Relationship of spatial technologies and supporting disciplines

analysis and real time applications. The comprehensive study of spatial technologies, geographic information and the supporting disciplines have now been placed under the rubric of Geographic Information Science (GIScience) (Longley 2005).
