What's in Our Water Symposium: WiOW Series

For more information, visit www.wiow.com.au.

This symposium has always focused on micropollutants such as endocrine disrupting chemicals, pharmaceuticals and personal care products in the environment, with a view to share the latest research and development towards minimizing the impact of micropollutants and managing their ecological risks to the environment.

Since 2004, the symposium has been held every three years as an activity of the special interest group on micropollutants within the Society SETAC Australasia (formerly Australasian Society for Ecotoxicology).

During this period, the series has been able to attract world authorities as plenary speakers on this topic, including Drs Susan Jobling (UK), Dana Kolpin (USA), Andreas Kortenkamp (UK), Bent Halling Sorenson (Denmark), Shane Snyder (USA), Taisen Iguchi (Japan), Larry Barber (USA), Urs Von Gunten (Switzerland) and John Stark (USA).

This successful WiOW series has always been attended by a diverse range of audiences drawn from researchers, academia, government, industry, regulators and policy makers. Some notable achievements of the series include “The Black Mountain Declaration” in 2007 on the issue of EDCs and workshop with policy makers from across Australia through the National Water Commission.

The 5th symposium in this series, WiOW-2016/EmCon2016 was a huge success, which was held in Sydney together with EmCon2016, drawing a strong international interest. The 6th Symposium in the series will build on the momentum and will be held in Canberra (at CSIRO Discovery Centre) under the auspices of SETAC Australasia.
