14th International Passive Sampling Symphosium and Workshop
Dear participants, Due to unexpected reasons, we have decided to postpone this year's IPSW in the US. IPSW in the US will happen either in the autumn of 2024 or early 2025, and we will continue with the format: one year in Europe, second year in the US. The venue in the US will be specified later, one possibility is San Diego, California. At the same time, we are happy to inform you that next year's upcoming IPSW in Europe we are planning in France, University of Limoges 13th-17th May 2024 after SETAC in Seville.
IPSW aim to attract a diverse audience from experts in the passive sampling development and application technologies to new users becoming more familiar with the PS advantages. All together working to advance the science behind PS and increase the use of PS approaches to meet risk assessment, policy, and regulatory needs. The IPSW platform has transformed from a local event into an internationally recognised platform of experts in the PS field.
13th IPSW had a particular focus on the perspective of scientists and PS policymakers. Policymakers and water authorities who are involved with the Water Framework Directive monitoring were invited. We worked together on bridging the gap between the development of PS methods and their implementation in regulatory monitoring. Important questions were:
What is needed/required to get passive sampling implemented? These can be suggestions on the scientific level or policy level.
Can PS play a more prominent role in WFD monitoring than so far?
What are suggestions on the national level to use PS?
Supporting partners for IPSW 2022
Conferences are built on a non-profit basis so that registration fees cover the maximum of costs. We strive to keep fees at levels that are acceptable to those working in the field of environmental protection – from engineering professional groups, through educational institutions, universities to students. We thank those who supported us once or permanently for the whole time of the organization.
We welcome partners for next events to help IPSW, help the power of passive sampling to improve environmental protection. More information is here: Invitation for Sponsors
