The main objective of this conference is to promote discussions of high scientific quality among a worldwide audience. Participants of this conference will include a number of prominent experts as well as young researchers in the fields of aquatic ecosystems contamination and mechanism of effects of xenobiotics on wildlife. The conference will provide an international and friendly forum for exchanging state-of-the-art information, knowledge sharing, and networking, with focus on xenobiotics, mechanisms of action and relevance to the ecosystems.

Relevant research areas include advances in chemical analysis, and chemical identification of toxicants, mechanisms of toxicity in aquatic environments and the understanding of responses to toxic agents at subcellular, cellular, tissue, species and community level. One special objective of this conference is to broaden our view on new compounds, new areas, new mechanisms and new integrative concepts on xenobiotic effects in aquatic ecosystems.
