Dear Subscriber !

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

Last month more than 320 scientists from about 40 countries came together in Münster for the METALLOMICS 2011 to discuss advances in metallomics. The symposium that was accompanied by an instrument exhibition featured a scientific program in three parallel presentation streams and two poster sessions. More than 230 presentations from different disciplines highlighted the interdisciplinary character of this event. The big success of this conference and the growing awareness of the role of metallomics for life science assures the continuation of this symposium series. The next two symposia where already announce in Münster: METALLOMICS 2013 will be organized by the group of Prof. Alfredo Sanz-Medel (Oviedo, Spain) and the METALLOMICS 2015 will be organized by Prof. Xinrong Zhang and colleagues (Beijing, China). We look forward to meet you there !
There are only two weeks left in this month which is traditionally a holiday month with reduced activities with respect to international meetings before the conference season re-starts in August (see EVISA's Agenda of Events). However there is one important special event at the end of this month: the 10th International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant.

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.

Committee for Socio-economic Analysis agrees on two draft opinions on restriction proposals for mercury compounds under REACH
At its meeting in Helsinki 14-16 June 2011, the Committee for Socio-economic Analysis (SEAC) agreed on draft opinions on restrictions concerning mercury in measuring devices and phenylmercury compounds.


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.
