5 - 9 May 2024, Seville, Spain
SETAC Europe 34th Annual Meeting

The Scientific Committee for the SETAC Europe 34th Annual Meeting is committed to putting together a not-to-be-missed conference with an exciting scientific programme addressing the overarching theme of “Science-Based Solutions in Times of Crisis: Integrating Science and Policy for Environmental Challenges.” SETAC Europe 2024 will bring together scientists from various disciplines in academia, business/industry and government to share, debate, discuss, disseminate and facilitate the use and re-use of their most recent scientific knowledge to support adaptive and responsive environmental management and protection.

The breadth of topics that SETAC Europe 2024 will address includes:

  • The environmental fate and effects of emerging and existing pollutants and their mixtures, at cellular, organism, community, population and ecosystem levels;
  • The development of solutions to reduce, replace and regulate the use of known pollutants;
  • Strategies and methods to mitigate and remediate contaminated soil, air and water;
  • Innovations to foster more sustainable practices in agriculture, waste treatment, resource management and more; and
  • Life cycle thinking approaches including supply chain data collection, impact assessment modelling and footprinting methodologies.

The scientific programme consists of 7 tracks for parallel sessions.

13 - 15 May 2024, Limoges, France
14th International Passive Sampling Symphosium and Workshop

IPSW aim to attract a diverse audience from experts in the passive sampling development and application technologies to new users becoming more familiar with the PS advantages. All together working to advance the science behind PS and increase the use of PS approaches to meet risk assessment, policy, and regulatory needs. The IPSW platform has transformed from a local event into an internationally recognised platform of experts in the PS field.

The 2023 IPSW aims to attract a diverse audience, from experts in the development and application of passive sampling techniques to inexperienced users becoming more familiar with the PS advantages. With the continued maturation of passive sampling, this meeting will provide opportunities to share knowledge and experiences related to specific practical applications of these tools, novel uses, regulatory acceptance, and future directions of study. The programme will be assigned to the following key topics reflecting the development and application of passive samplers in air, sediment/soil and water:

  • Hydrophobic compounds
  • Hydrophilic compounds
  • Volatile and semi-volatile compounds
  • Metals, inorganic compounds
  • Development of novel passive sampling devices
  • Environmental applications and monitoring with passive samplers
  • Toxicity assessment based on passive sampling methods
  • Key aspects for QA/QC, accreditation, data treatment and interpretation
  • Environmental policies and strategies for implementation of passive samplers

Early Bird registration and abstracts submission - 31 March 2024

8 - 12 June 2025, Belgrade, Serbia
ICCE2025 - 19th International Conference on Chemistry and the Environment 

The ICCE Conference on Chemistry and the Environment is a traditional high quality event which gather scientists from Europe and all over the world who work in environmental chemistry and related disciplines. Aim is to show most recent findings and their applications, discuss them and make platform for developing contacts and networking among academia, competent authorities and/or policy makers. Detailed session titles will be known later.
