Emerging Contaminants: EmCon Series
The EmCon conference series was created in 2007 to provide a mechanism for bringing together leading scientists to share their latest research and to interact with others working in the rapidly advancing topic of emerging contaminants in a focused, topical, and intimate setting. A plenary session format is used in order to provide all speakers an undivided audience and the attendees the opportunity to see every presentation.
In March 2007, the inaugural conference, EmCon 2007 was held in the historic city of York, United Kingdom. Subsequent conferences in this series have been held in Fort Collins, Colorado (EmCon 2009), Copenhagen, Denmark (EmCon 2011), and Iowa City, Iowa (EmCon 2014, www.emcon2014.com). All meetings in this conference series have been attended by a complementary mix of researchers, policymakers, and regulators from universities, industry, national laboratories, state and federal agencies, and regulatory organisations.
