History of Speciation Conferences



A landmark in the history of speciation analysis was the Dahlem Workshop on the Importance of Chemical "Speciation" in Environmental Processes, held in Berlin, 1984, September 2-7. The main contributrions to the workshop have been published in a sampler entitled: The Importance of Chemical Speciation in Environmental Processes, edited by M. Bernhard, P.B. Brinckman and P.J. Sadler, Springer, Berlin, 1986 (ISBN 0-387-15362-4).
 
Very important for the development of interdisciplinary cooperation between scientists from different fields was a series of workshops organized within the framework of the EU funded network "Speciation '21" during the years 1998-2000. The outcome of these workshops is summarized in a sampler entitled "Trace element speciation for Environment, Food and Health", edited by L. Ebdon, L. Pitts, R. Cornelis, H. Crews, O.F.X. Donard and Ph. Quevauviller, Royal Society of Chemistry, Cambridge, 2001.
 
One of the important ongoing meetings dedicated to speciation analysis is the International Symposium on Speciation of Elements in Biological, Environmental and Toxicological Sciences, which traditionally has been organized as a Pre- or Post-Symposium of the CSI conference.

The following table gives access to the web sites of the meetings and the publications of the conference contributions:

Another important speciation meeting is the:

International Conference on Trace Element Speciation in Biomedical, Nutritional and Environmental Sciences which has been developed from the International Workshops on Trace Element Analytical Chemistry in Medicine and Biology both of which have been traditionally held at GSF/Neuherberg Munich in Germany.

The International Association of Environmental Analytical Chemistry is organizing the IAEAC Workshop, which since the 8th workshop is dedicated on the  "Progress in Analytical Methodologies in Trace Metal Speciation". Since 2007 this symposium has been named "TraceSpec". The following table gives access to the web sites of these workshops:
