The Congress will address the broader context of arsenic research along the following themes (but not only be restricted) to the following themes:

Theme 1: Arsenic in environmental matrices and interactions (Air, water, soil and biological matrices)
  • Origin, distribution of arsenic in groundwater, transport and fate in aquifers
  • Biogeochemical processes and speciation
  • Arsenic speciation and mobility from mine waste and tailings
  • Arsenic in contaminated soils and sediments
  • Climate change impacts and coupling with mobility of arsenic in water and soil environments
  • Arsenic and other trace elements in Swedish /Fennoscandinavian groundwaters
  • Analytical advancements and challenges in measuring and monitoring of arsenic in solid and aqueous media
  • Synchrotron applications and innovative research on arsenic in natural systems
  • Bio-sensors in monitoring applications

Theme 2:  Arsenic in food chain
  • Transfer from environmental matrices (water, air, soil)
  • Bioavailability
  • Arsenic in Rice
  • Marine species
  • Speciation and toxicity of arsenic in food chain
  • Arsenic in processed food and beverages
  • Analytical challenges

Theme 3: Arsenic and health
  • Epidemiology
  • Indicators of exposure – Biomarkers
  • Arsenic and genomic studies
  • Risk assessment of chronic ingestion
  • Multi metal synergies in chronic exposure cases

Theme 4: Clean Water Technology for Control of Arsenic
  • Technologies based on adsorption and co-precipitation
  • Ion exchange and membrane technologies
  • Nanotechnology applications in arsenic treatment
  • Innovative technologies

Theme 5: Societal issues, Policy Studies, Mitigation and Management
  • Societal implications of long term exposure
  • Policy implications
  • Risk assessments and remediation of contaminated land and water environments – Case studies
  • Mitigation and Management
  • Drinking Water Compliance with Water Safety Plan
  • Arsenic in drinking water and the post 2015 Sustainable Development Goals
