Mycotoxins and Phycotoxins

17—21 May 2004, Bethesda, Maryland, USA !! IUPAC sponsored !!

The 11th International Symposium on Mycotoxins and Phycotoxins is the next symposium in a series initiated by the IUPAC Food Chemistry Commission. The first symposium was held in Kungaly, Sweden, in 1973; the nine symposia that followed were held in Pulawy, Poland; Paris, France; Lausanne, Switzerland; Vienna, Austria; Pretoria, South Africa; Tokyo, Japan; Mexico City, Mexico; Rome, Italy; and Guaraja, Brazil. The symposia have become the principal international, interdisciplinary meeting on mycotoxins and phycotoxins.

The most recent, held in Brazil (May 2000), focused on the global significance of the toxins, occurrence, assay proficiency, toxicology and risk assessment.

The 11th symposium will assess progress or advances made since Brazil 2000 in relation to overall goals of the series and the evolving global perspective of food safety. The negative effect of mycotoxin and phycotoxin contamination of food commodities on health and global trade has been highlighted at various symposia. It is also understood that, without sound risk analysis, unsubstantiated health and safety claims become the basis of arbitrary regulations that could compromise food availability as well as international trade. The XI symposium will highlight the value of risk assessment and its regulatory use; laboratory quality assurance and quality control, and advances in sampling, accreditation and method validation procedures, particularly in developing countries. The XI symposium will also address novel molecular tools for detection, toxicogenomics and control strategies. There will be a "self assessment" of the IUPAC Symposium on Mycotoxins and Phycotoxins series from a historical and impact perspective.
