On behalf of the Organisers and Scientific Committee, we invite you to the 13th International Passive Sampling Workshop and Symposium (IPSW 2022), to be held in Utrecht, the Netherlands. This meeting will take place from Sunday, September 18, to Tuesday, September 20, 2022.
IPSW structure - hybrid
On-site – oral presentations and posters
Supplementary online – presentation recording + book of abstracts (Detailed information ononline participation conditions will be specified at the second announcement according to the registered participants number
The 2022 IPSW aims to attract a diverse audience, from experts in the development and application of passive sampling techniques to new users becoming more familiar with the advantages of passive sampling, working to advance the science and increase the use of passive sampling approaches to meet risk assessment, policy, and regulatory needs.
IPSW 2022 aims 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 transformed from a local event into an internationally recognised platform of experts in the PS field. 13th IPSW will have a particular focus on the perspective of scientists and PS policymakers. Policymakers and water authorities who are involved with the Water Framework Directive monitoring are specially invited to join us. Together with them we want to work on bridging the gap between the development of PS methods and their implementation in regulatory monitoring. Important questions are:
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?
Sunday, September 18
(Arrival day) Registration Welcome party
Monday, September 19
Presentations - parallel sections Posters sections Evening social event I
Tuesday, September 20
Policy and science interaction - Passive sampling in the context of the WFD - Presentations and moderated interactive sessions, facilitated by Dutch water authorities Evening social event II
Sessions will be assigned to the following key topics reflecting the development and application of passive samplers in air, sediments/soils and water:
1. Hydrophobic compounds
2. Volatile and semi-volatile compounds
3. Metals, inorganic compounds
4. Hydrophilic compounds
5. Development of novel passive sampling devices
6. Environmental applications and monitoring with passive samplers
7. Toxicity assessment based on passive sampling methods
8. Key aspects for QA/QC, accreditation, data treatment and interpretation
9. Environmental policies and Strategy for PS implementation
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 other partners for this and other events. Help IPSW, help the power of passive sampling for environmental protection! More information is here: Invitation for Sponsors
