XII International Conference


Dear Colleagues,

on behalf of the Organizing Committee, I have the privilege of inviting you to participate in the 12th International Scientific and Technical Conference “ELEMENT CYCLE IN THE ENVIRONMENT: BIOACCUMULATION-TOXICITY-PREVENTION”, which will be held on 27 and 28 September 2018, in Warsaw, Poland, at the Conference Center of the Polish Army. The Conference is organized by the Institute of Environmental Protection – National Research Institute in cooperation with the Department of Infrastructure of Poland’s Ministry of National Defense.

The Conference will continue the theme discussed during our previous Conferences devoted to the latest scientific achievements in the field of issues related to the presence of elements and toxic substances in the environment, with particular reference to synergistic and antagonistic interactions as well as the possibility of preventing the incorporation of toxic elements and substances into the trophic chain.

The scientific program will focus on the sources of elements and toxic substances and their transformations in the basic components of the environment – air, water, soil and living organisms, as well as on the environmental and health risk assessments.

The results of the project related to nitrogen transformation in agroecosystems, entitled „Support for low-carbon agriculture adaptable to climate change now as well as in the 2030 and 2050 perspective”,  will be presented during the Conference.

Let me express the hope that, the same as the previous 11 Conferences, the forthcoming one  will prove to be a forum for the interactive exchange of views and experiences that will bring together the scientific community as well as practitioners and students dedicating themselves to environmental protection.
