AIMS AND SCOPE
Although there are workshops, conferences and symposia on many metals (from arsenic to zinc), the International Conference on Heavy Metals in the Environment (ICHMET) remains the only forum that provides an integrated perspective on research and policy initiatives on all heavy metals in a trans-disciplinary context. Scientists need to understand not only the unique features and behavior of individual heavy metals but also the differences, similarities and interactions of different metals at the ecosystem, systemic and cellular levels if we are to deal with the problems of global heavy metal pollution in a sustainable manner. ICHMET endeavors to break down the expertizing walls that are increasingly being erected around individual heavy metals, and believes that there are advantages in having a forum for specialists to share their research on arsenic, cadmium, copper, lead, mercury, nickel, zinc and other metals. The forthcoming conference will feature some of the world's leading authorities on various heavy metals including many members of the International Scientific Committee.
15th ICHMET- is a continuation of a series of highly successful conferences that have been held in major cities of the world since 1975. These conferences typically draw 500-1000 participants from countries in many parts of the world. Well over 5000 scientists have taken part in this series of conferences including most leaders in the field. Apart from the city's natural beauty, Gdansk is logical choice for the 15th Conference to highlight the outstanding work that is being done on heavy metals in central Europe. The venue for the meeting will be the Gdansk University of Technology (GUT) which features many tourist attractions.
