30 April - 4 May 2023, Dublin, Ireland (hybrid event)
SETAC Europe 33rd Annual meeting

The Scientific Committee for the SETAC Europe 33rd Annual Meeting is committed to putting together a not-to-be-missed conference with an exciting scientific programme addressing the overarching theme of “Data-driven environmental decision-making” for the protection and restoration of the environment. To support the transition to renewable economies and sustainable business practices, and to facilitate the translation of scientific knowledge into data-driven policy making and regulation, SETAC Europe 2023 will bring together scientists from various disciplines in academia, business/industry and government to share, debate, discuss, disseminate and facilitate the use and re-use of their most recent scientific knowledge to support adaptive and responsive environmental management and protection.

The breadth of topics that SETAC Europe 2023 will address:

  • The environmental fate and effects of emerging and existing pollutants and their mixtures, at cellular, organism, community, population and ecosystem levels;
  • The development of solutions to reduce, replace and regulate the use of known pollutants;
  • Strategies and methods to mitigate and remediate contaminated soil, air and water;
  • Innovations to foster more sustainable practices in agriculture, waste treatment, resource management and more; and
  • Life cycle thinking approaches including supply chain data collection, impact assessment modelling and footprinting methodologies.


Abstract submission: 30 November 2022


11 - 15 June 2023, Venice, Italy
ICCE 2023 - 18th International Conference

The conference will provide a unique and inspiring information and communication platform for environmental scientists and a forum of professional exchange in the field of environmental chemistry and related disciplines. An interesting programme of social events will accompany the Conference. In addition, several satellite events will be associated with the Conference for in-depth discussion, seminars and workshops on highly relevant selected topics.

Registration: 30 April 2023

Abstract submission: 24 March 2023

Challenges in Quality Assurance and Quality Control of Micro- and Nanoplastics Analysis – ICCE 2023 Satellite event

In this Satellite event, we will present and discuss a series of concepts, examples and recommendations how to translate and implement established QA/QC tools into MP analysis of complex matrices. These include among others the selection and use of different surrogate standards (e.g. coloured, isotope-labelled, fluorescent or metal doped) along different steps of the analytical chain to account for, e.g., extraction, pyrolysis or imaging efficiency, the development and use of controls such as fresh and aged MP standards and spiked reference materials, as well as inter-laboratory comparisons and ring trials. Whenever possible, one should resort to complementary analytical approaches based in orthogonal instrumentation and detection principles, and determine concentrations based on both on number and mass concentration, and in combination with size distribution. Figures of merits of any validated analytical method include method detection limits, blank levels, (linear) concentration ranges, repeatability and reproducibility, recoveries, matrix effects, etc. Their determination and reporting should (even) more regularly become good analytical practise among analytical chemists investigating MP in complex matrices.

AquaConSoil 2023

AquaConSoil is a bi-yearly event where scientists, policy- and decision makers and industry representatives gather to learn, share and engage on sustainable use and management of soil, sediment and water resources. Since 1985 we welcome approximately 800 visitors from all over and outside Europe. The 2023 ACS conference will address 5 topics:

  • Topic 1 - Water and soil resource recovery in the context of Circular Economy and European Green Deal
  • Topic 2 - Soil-water-sediment system contribution to climate change adaptation and mitigation
  • Topic 3 - Sustainable remediation, emerging contaminants and prevention towards zero pollution
  • Topic 4 - Water and Soil in the digital world
  • Topic 5 - Tools and systems Thinking Approaches to manage complexity in sustainable soil-water-sediment systems

The deadline for abstract submission is 31 January 2023
