Environmental Microplastics Symposium 2021
Microplastics has received great attention in the recent past years because of its potential impact on the environment and human health. The number of publications in this topic has increased substantially. 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. 

It is important to bring the experts together for some knowledge updates, filling gaps, identify new questions and give some directions for future work.

SG Lab Forum has taken efforts to bring microplastics experts, working in different fields (technique, monitoring and toxicology) to organize an online symposium where latest updates can be presented and provide the base for some fruitful deliberation to improve our understanding on this emerging topic.

Following experts have agreed to be part of this symposium technical committee and contribute to the technical content of the symposium.
