The Congress will address the broader context of arsenic research along the following themes (but not only be restricted) to the following themes:

Theme 1: Arsenic Behaviour in changing environmental media
  • Sources, transport and fate of arsenic in groundwater systems
  • Origin and reactivity of organic matter in high arsenic groundwater systems
  • Biogeochemical processes controlling arsenic mobility and redox transformation
  • Linkage of arsenic dynamics to groundwater hydraulic changing
  • Impacts of climate change on groundwater arsenic and other redox-sensitive elements
  • Arsenic and other trace elements in Chinese groundwater
  • Spatial and temporal evolution of arsenic in mine waste and tailings
  • Arsenic mobility and fate in contaminated soils and sediments
  • Arsenic in dust and road deposits
  • Advances and challenges in arsenic analysis in solid and aqueous matrix

Theme 2: Arsenic in a Changing Agricultural ecosystem
  • Processes and pathways of arsenic in agricultural ecosystems
  • Arsenic dynamics in rhizospheres
  • Microbial ecology of arsenic biotransformation in soils
  • Molecular mechanisms of plant arsenic uptake
  • Arsenic in marine biota
  • Speciation and toxicity of arsenic in food chain

Theme 3: Health Impacts of Environmental Arsenic
  • Neurophysiological and IQ impacts of arsenic
  • Exposure and epidemiology of arsenic impacts on human health
  • Genetic predisposition of chronic arsenic poisoning
  • Reliable biomarkers for arsenic exposure
  • Risk assessment of chronic ingestion
  • Threshold values of food arsenic
  • Multi metal synergies in chronic exposure cases

Theme 4: Technologies for Arsenic immobilization and Clean Water Blueprints
  • Adsorption and co-precipitation for arsenic removal
  • Ion exchange and membrane technologies
  • Nanotechnology applications in arsenic treatment
  • Arsenic solidification and immobilization for contaminated soils
  • Phytoremediation of arsenic-contaminated soils
  • Innovative technologies

Theme 5: Sustainable Mitigation and Management
  • Societal involvement for mitigations of long-term exposure
  • Policy instruments to regulate arsenic exposures
  • Risk assessments and remediation of contaminated land and water environments – Case studies
  • Mitigation and management of arsenic in a sustainable way
  • Drinking water regulations of water safety plan
  • Arsenic in drinking water and implementation plan for safe drinking water supply from sustainable development perspectives
