History of the Speciation Workshop

The IAEAC has organized, since 1983, a series of workshops related to Trace Metal Speciation (see table). To date, ten meetings of this type were held throughout Europe and in Canada. Although the scientific scope of these workshops slightly changed over the years, the major emphasis has primarily been on environmental process and effect studies rather than on analytical methodologies for metal speciation. Starting in 2000, with the eighth meeting of the series, analytical chemistry was made the focal point of the workshop as indicated by the change of its title into "Progress in Analytical Methodologies for Trace Metal Speciation". It is expected that this is an adequate approach to accept the challenges associated with studying the behavior of trace metals in the environment and their interaction with biota. The 11th Workshop to be held in Münster/Germany in September 2007 is also following this concept.

Workshop Report
A report from the very succesful workshop is available on the
 EVISA server.

Final program
 The final program is available as a PDF for downloading.

Last minute changes !

Please recognize that the opening of the workshop had to be shifted 15 min earlier than previously announced (September 5, 8:15) !

Poster sessions
Due to the large number of posters submitted in the "Tools" section we had to change the composition of the two sessions: During poster session I  posters with numbers PO 1.x/PO 4.x and during the poster session II posters with numbers PO 2.x/PO 3.x will be displayed.

Short Course
Registration for the Short Course is mandatory. A registration form can be found here: Registration form for the Short Course

Scientific Program
Abstracts of the oral presentations are now available for downloading from the web site of the scientific programme.

More than 80 Posters will be displayed during two poster sessions. Abstracts are now available on the web site for the Poster Session I and the Poster Session II.
