Dear Subscriber !

Welcome to the January issue of EVISA's Speciation Newsletter.

Let us start the New Year with a short review of last year. First, thanks to all of you for your fidelity over the years. Last year again we had more than 520,000 visitors on our web site, making the EVISA website truly the first choice for all of you interested in chemical speciation. Again, we updated the site on a daily basis with topical information and also worked hard to keep existing information  up to date. Alltogether, more than 1050 pages were added, so that the site is now containing more than 13,700 pages (for details see our report below).

One of the main activities of EVISA is the organization of conferences and workshops. While in 2010 none where taking place, we were quite busy in organizing the METALLOMICS 2011, that will take place June 15-18 in Münster, Germany.  The role, functions and mechanisms of metallic species in organisms is the focus of this symposium. Experts from different disciplines of this highly interdisciplinary science have been invited to present the state of the art.  Please feel invited to join us for this stimulating event. The call for papers is open until February 28 !


EVISA is keeping you updated  with what is going on in speciation analysis. In this section you will find news about the most current research results, about trends, legal issues and informations from manufacturers in the field of speciation analysis.

With all the links to further information and publications the News archive is a valuable collection of "hot topics" in speciation analysis. We continuously update even former news with new links and information so that all news are actual all the time.

EVISA's activities during the year 2010
The year 2010 was a successful year for EVISA with important developments. Nearly 520,000 users visited the EVISA web portal during the year and watched more than 4.25 Mio pages on our portal.

Arsenic species in rice: Call for analytical laboratories
The Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (IRMM) is looking for analytical laboratories which can quantify arsenic species in rice.


With a list of about 50 current entries EVISA is informing you about interesting events and keeps you updated with their deadlines. By consulting our list of deadlines you won't miss the opportunity for early registration at reduced fee or the chance to submit your contribution in time.

EVISA provides information about open positions for Ph.D. students, PostDocs and permanent staff in the field of speciation. Looking to fill a vacancy or needing a new career challenge? Either way this service is FREE. Many laboratories and research facilities (from Greenland to Crete) have already found their highly educated stuff through this service by EVISA. If you would like to post an open position here, please contact us at info@speciation.net !





EVISA's directory of scientist is a versatile tool to facilitate contact with scientists in the field of speciation and related sciences. The directory is fully searchable for names, addresses, research topics etc.  You should bookmark this directory as an always up-to-date address book. (In order to hinder SPAM robots for collecting the E-mail accounts, we hide them in a special format).

More than 265 active scientists in the field of speciation analysis already joined the directory. Join this great directory that is extensively linked to all type of other information on this site, such as homepages, conferences and literature.

If your entry is still missing in this directory, please contact us at info@speciation.net.



EVISA provides an easy access to external information. Our database contains more than 2100 links to relevant information from numerous top scientific resources spread over the whole Web. The database is searchable both via full-text and categories such as elements, type of species and type of information. We are permanently updating our links section.

If your web site is missing here, please e-mail your link information to info@speciation.net.
