Joint Event - ICEENN 2019 and NanoFASE Concluding Conference

The NanoFASE concluding conference will be organized in Vienna in coordination with the 14th International Conference on Environmental Effects of Nanoparticles and Nanomaterials - ICEENN 2019. ICEENN 2019 is the leading international conference on environmental nanoscience. ICEENN brings together researchers, industry and regulators to discuss recent advances in our understanding of the fate and behaviour of nanomaterials, their applications and possible effects in the environment and the key issues relating to maintaining the economic and social benefits of nanotechnology.

Submit your abstract now!

In September, ICEENN 2019 is jointly organized by the Department of Environmental Geosciences at the University of Vienna and NanoFASE project. This offers participants a whole week of fascinating research, applications and training on topics spanning from basic research to application, modeling and regulatory aspects.

Contributions are invited to the following topics:
A - Eco-Toxicology of Nanomaterials
B - Nano-Bio Interactions and Uptake
C - Analytical Methods and Instrumentation
D - Release, Behavior and Fate in the Environment
E - Applications in the Environment
F - Modeling, Data Repositories and Nano-Informatics
G - Nano and Microplastics in the Aquatic Environment

The registration and call for papers are open. For more details visit: https://nano2019.univie.ac.at/home/

At the NanoFASE concluding conference open sessions get demonstrations and insight into the NanoFASE project models and the clickable Exposure Assessment Framework. We will offer free registration for sessions on 5-6 September. Follow our social media accounts to learn what’s on offer!

The Gordon Research Seminar on Environmental Nanotechnology

The Gordon Research Seminar on Environmental Nanotechnology is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. The event will take place on 1 & 2 June 2019 in at the Jordan Hotel at Sunday River, Newry, ME, United States.

The 2019 meeting will host three engaging science sessions, featuring talks from submitted student and post-doc abstracts. Topics include 1) the design and use of nanomaterials for environmental applications, 2) novel methodologies enabling the study of the potential negative impacts of nano-enabled products, and 3) public policy and educational outreach as they apply to the sustainable use of nanotechnology. An important goal of the 2019 meeting is to inspire attendees to consider the broader context of their research efforts. Attendees will have abundant opportunities for discussion and networking with both peers and leaders in the field from a variety of career paths during poster sessions, a mentoring session, a networking lunch, and informal social activities.

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by May 4, 2019GRS Speaker Abstract Deadline: Although applications will be accepted until the date noted above, any applicants who wish to be considered for an oral presentation should submit their application by March 1, 2019
