2016 Annual Conference of the International Society of Exposure Science (ISES) Utrecht

  • Conference Call
  • The Pres­i­dent of the Inter­na­tional Soci­ety of Expo­sure Sci­ence (ISES) and the 2016 Co-​Chairs Yuri Bru­inen de Bruin and Lesa Ayl­ward are pleased to announce plans for the 2016 Annual ISES Meet­ing to be held in Utrecht, The Nether­lands, from 913 Octo­ber 2016.

    Expo­sure and envi­ron­men­tal health sci­ences have never been more impor­tant. Com­mu­ni­ties and ecosys­tems across the globe face a broad range of com­plex inter­act­ing local and global threats. This meet­ing will help to define the sci­ence that will pro­vide an intel­li­gent path forward.

    Scope of the meeting

    This meet­ing will bring together experts and prac­ti­tion­ers from acad­e­mia, gov­ern­ment, indus­try, and non-​governmental orga­ni­za­tions ded­i­cated to the pro­tec­tion of health and envi­ron­ment. Expo­sure sci­ence is a dynamic field that

    • Fos­ters inter­dis­ci­pli­nary inter­ac­tion to pro­mote solu­tions to com­plex pub­lic health prob­lems through inte­gra­tion of ana­lyt­i­cal chem­istry, epi­demi­ol­ogy, tox­i­col­ogy, indus­trial hygiene, pub­lic health, risk assess­ment, eco­log­i­cal health, and occu­pa­tional health;
    • Devel­ops state of the art meth­ods for mea­sur­ing and esti­mat­ing expo­sures, and the use of these mea­sures in epi­demi­ol­ogy, risk assess­ment and envi­ron­men­tal health policy;
    • Addresses expo­sures to envi­ron­men­tal chem­i­cals as well as to radionu­clides, pathogens, food addi­tives, and phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals through tra­di­tional and inno­v­a­tive meth­ods includ­ing bio­mon­i­tor­ing, mobile and per­sonal mon­i­tor­ing and sen­sors, and clas­si­cal media-​based measurements.

    Meet­ing Themes

    The ISES 2016 meet­ing theme is “Inter­dis­ci­pli­nary Approaches to Health and the Envi­ron­ment.” Within Europe the Nether­lands is known for its polder­ing strat­egy, which achieves agree­ments on com­plex issues by con­nect­ing stake­hold­ers through dia­logue. At the ISES 2016 Annual Meet­ing we will use this strat­egy to address top­ics such as:

    • Bridg­ing Dis­ci­plines in Expo­sure Sci­ence to Inform Policy
    • Con­nect­ing Exter­nal and Inter­nal Dose for Risk Assess­ment and Source Mitigation
    • Devel­op­ment and Har­mo­niza­tion of Expo­sure Assess­ment Meth­ods, Data­bases and Models
    • Emerg­ing Chem­i­cals: Inno­v­a­tive Approaches to Detec­tion and Assessment
    • Devel­op­ing and Advanc­ing Expo­sure Sci­ence Edu­ca­tion Programs
    • We invite the sub­mis­sion of Sym­po­sium pro­pos­als on these and related topics.
