Mycotoxins and Phycotoxins
21-26 May 2007, Istanbul, Turkey
The XIIth International IUPAC Symposium on Mycotoxins and Phycotoxins will be held 21–26 May 2007 in Istanbul, Turkey. Since IUPAC initiated this series of symposia in 1973 in Sweden, 10 symposia have been held in the following locations: Pulawy, Poland; Paris; Lausanne, Switzerland; Vienna; Pretoria, South Africa; Tokyo; Mexico City; Rome; Guaruja, Brazil and Maryland, USA. These symposia, which have become the principal interdisciplinary meetings on mycotoxins and phycotoxins, provide overviews of research and developments in analytical chemistry, risk assessment, effects on human health, control, and remediation strategies.
The XIIth meeting will comprise a number of plenary lectures reviewing the principal areas of the symposium plus contributed papers selected by a Scientific Committee. As with previous symposia, poster sessions will play an important part in the symposium and there will be a concurrent instrument and manufacturers exhibition.
This symposium will be hosted by Tubitak-Ankara Test and Analysis Laboratory (ATAL), founded in 1994. Tubitak-ATAL provides testing, analyses, consulting, and training, and specializes in mycotoxins analysis and method validation.
A call for contributed papers will be made in May 2006.
