The theme of the 2021 congress is “Bridging Science to Practice for Sustainable Development”.

The Congress will address the broader context of arsenic research within the following themes:

Theme 1: Arsenic in Natural Soil and Water Systems

  • Sources, transport and fate of arsenic in groundwater systems
  • Biogeochemical processes controlling arsenic mobility and redox transformation
  • Arsenic dynamics and well hydraulics
  • Climate change Impacts on groundwater arsenic and other redox-sensitive elements
  • Co-occurring arsenic and other geogenic trace elements in groundwater sources
  • Spatial and temporal evolution of arsenic in mining and legacy mining areas in Europe
  • Arsenic mobility and fate in contaminated soils and sediments
  • Arsenic in dust and road deposits
  • Analytical advancements and challenges on arsenic in arsenic analysis in solid and aqueous matrix

Theme 2: Arsenic in Agriculture and food production

  • Processes and pathways of arsenic in agricultural ecosystems
  • Dynamics of arsenic in rhizosphere
  • 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 Arsenic

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

Theme 4: Technologies for Arsenic Removal from Water

  • 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 for Sustainable Development

  • Societal involvement for mitigations of long-term exposure
  • Policy review and design instruments to regulate arsenic exposures
  • Risk assessments of contaminated land and water environments – Case studies
  • Sustainable 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
  • Role of the academia in addressing the arsenic mitigation – bridging science to practice
