As 2006, the First International Congress on Arsenic in the Environment, was held in Mexico City in 2006, focusing on “Natural Arsenic in Groundwaters of Latin America”. As a result of that event plans were made to hold a series of biennial congresses with rotating venues in different continents, continuing with the themes of the congress held in Mexico and also including aspects connected with toxicity and effects on health. These events would provide participants with an up-to-date, global view of the studies of this contaminant that have been carried out, on a multi- and interdisciplinary level. Hence the present announcement of the Second International Congress, As 2008, with the title “Arsenic from Nature to Humans”, which will be held in Valencia (Spain) from 21 to 23 May 2008.
