Graham, Adam and I attended the combined SETAC Europe Annual Conference and SETAC World Congress in Berlin last week. We’re sustaining members of SETAC Europe and, as always, it was good to catch up with friends and colleagues, meet some new people and attend some interesting sessions.
Adam and I both chaired parallel scientific sessions (Wastewater monitoring, treatment, analysis and effects, and Risk Assessment of metals and inorganic substances) and Graham and Adam both gave platform presentations on different aspects of metal bioavailability and the use of biotic ligand models.
In addition, we presented a series of posters across several sessions which we hoped would capture some of the work we’ve been involved with in the last year or so. Copies of these posters (as pdfs) are available to download using the links below. If you have any questions, or would like any more information please get in touch.
