MICRO 2018 Fate and Impact of Microplastics : Knowledge, Actions and Solutions

Version imprimable de cet article

The international conference will take place from 19 – 23 November 2018, in Arrecife, Lanzarote, Spain.

Participants are invited to submit abstracts for oral or poster presentations on the following topics :

• Marine Ecosystems

• Freshwater bodies

• From MACRO to nano

• Social change and behaviour

• Human health

• Policy

While the accumulation of microplastics in marine ecosystems has been reported in the literature since the 1970s, many questions remain open. MICRO 2018 provides an opportunity to share available knowledge, fill in gaps, identify new questions and research needs, and develop commitments to operationalise solutions ; MICRO 2018 will be a chance to reconvene, share what we have learned since MICRO 2016, and generate momentum for the work that remains to be done.
