This announcement provides information about the goal and format of the meeting, instructions for preparing abstracts, accommodation and travel arrangements, registration details, and information about the social programme and the meeting venue.

The Organising Committee cordially invites you to attend this conference and to contribute to the programme. We sincerely hope that you will respond positively to this invitation and call for papers. Please inform your colleagues about this opportunity to share and discuss their recent experiences and to be brought up to date scientifically through a number of short courses given by leading international specialists. We look forward to seeing you attending and participating in this scientific event.


 
Background

There is a growing need for air and biological monitoring within the preventive context of identifying health hazards at the work place and in the environment and of keeping them under control. For characterising exposure to chemical and biological agents, sensitive, selective and user-friendly methods and relevant sampling strategies are needed. In recent years there has been continuous development in this field, and it is essential to promote knowledge of newly developed methods and strategies for workplace, indoor and ambient air monitoring, as well as to establish biological exposure indices that can be used together with, or instead of, workplace and environmental measurements. The recently described “chemical cocktail effect” merits multi-exposure monitoring. Seven previous meetings have been held to facilitate interdisciplinary discussion about these aspects of air monitoring: Geilo (1993, 1999, and 2008), Lillehammer (2002), Loen (2005, 2011) in Norway, and Sälen (1996) in Sweden.



Objectives and Main Topics

The goals of the symposium are to provide a forum at which recent progress in exposure assessment strategies and analytical air sampling methodologies can be discussed. This year, the scope has been extended to further include aspects of biological monitoring and identification of biological markers of exposure and multi-exposure. The symposium is expected to provide an opportunity for an interchange of ideas among researchers, policy makers and practitioners in occupational health and environmental sciences. Regulatory issues will be addressed as well. After the symposium, the participants will have comprehensive knowledge of recent developments in this field.



Shorts courses

Short courses (lasting approximately 2 hours) will also be offered to all participants. These courses are planned as part of the conference with three or four courses being held in parallel with one another.
