The establishment of EVISA is funded by the EU through the Fifth Framework Programme (G7RT- CT- 2002- 05112).

IAP2012 lies within the framework of a series of conferences initiated in Wageningen (The Netherlands, 1997) and followed in Miskolc (Hungary, 2002), Jülich (Germany, 2004), Granada (Spain, 2006), Kyoto (Japan, 2008) and most recently in Beijing (China, 2010).

As a general objective, IAP conferences seek to provide a forum for researchers working in the interdisciplinary field of Environmental Science.

The main focus is brought on the importance of Colloids and Interfaces in natural environments both from fundamental and applied perspectives. This includes topics of societal concerns like environmental protection, remediation of polluted sites, optimization of mineral resources or the impacts of nanotechnology residues on the environment.

With the course of time, IAP conferences broadened their scope. IAP2012 warmly encourages the participation of scientists providing that their field of expertise is relevant for the understanding of interfacial processes at model or environmental particles, or that of transfer phenomena in natural sites. In line with the wide spectrum of disciplines (physics, biology, physical-chemistry, chemistry, mineralogy) relevant for environmental science, IAP2012 is intended to cover research work pertaining to length scale ranging from the angstrom to that of a natural site.

The IAP2012 conference also offers industrial companies an opportunity to appreciate the international state of the art in scientific research and applications in the domain.

The main topics covered in the conference include :

  • Resources and interfaces: water treatment, mineral processing, polluted soils and industrial waste remediation, bioremediation.
  • Environmental colloids and interfaces: properties, structure, reactivity.
  • Environmental Microbiology: bioavailability, ecotoxicity, diversity and population dynamics.
  • Interfacial processes in the environment: adsorption, aggregation, speciation, (bio)adhesion.
  • Synchrotron source as a tool in environmental science: case studies.
  • Scale changes: from the colloidal interface to the ecosystem.
  • Nano-Particles in the environment.
