It is our pleasure to invite you to our Symposium on Environmental Microplastics which is to be held online from November 10-12, 2021.

Microplastics (MP) have recently been considered as emerging contaminants in the water environment. In the last number of years,  many of Scientific literature reported that Microplastic particles are distributed widely throughout the world’s freshwaters, oceans, and seas, including the water column and sediments reaching as far as the deep sea. However, the practical considerations and protocols for microplastic pollution have not been understood properly regarding their distribution, biotoxicity, sampling, and identification in the aquatic environment. There are many questions remain open. This symposium provides an opportunity to share available knowledge, fill in gaps, identify new questions and research needs, and develop commitments to operationalize solutions; and generate momentum for the work that remains to be done. 

Conference Technical Program Agenda has been finalized. Please watch below video for the details. Registration is open, you can register online to reserve your seat.

The 3 days symposiums will consists of Keynote Lectures, Invited Lectures and Panel Discussions.

Further there will be short presentations from Young Researchers/PhD students.

Speakers Profile

We have invited microplastics subject experts, working on various aspects of microplastics such as measuring technique, real-world monitoring and toxicological effects of Microplastics.

This symposium provides an unique opportunity to learn from experts and give guidance for future work.
