PharmWat2017 - Prague, Czech Republic

du 04 septembre 2017 au 07 septembre 2017

PharmWat2017 : International Multidisciplinary Conference on Pharmaceuticals in the water environment: Waste water treatment, surface - and groundwater, drinking water production, effect on exosystems will takes place at Prague, Czech Republic from 4 to 7th September 2017.

Abstract submission deadline is 1st February 2017

For more informations.

The conference is organized by the European Water Association (EWA), International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH), and Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic. It is supported by the European Federation for Freshwater Sciences (EFFS), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Limnologie (DGL, German Association for Limnology), the Gesellschaft für Ökologie (GfÖ, The Ecological Society of Germany, Austria and Switzerland), and other institutions.

Objectives
PharmWat2017 focuses on the comprehensive issue of occurrence of pharmaceutical residues in the water environment. This is done by considering the entire pathway of pharmaceutical residues from their source (human use of medicines, agriculture, etc.) as sewage water to waste water treatment plants releasing their effluent to surface waters and groundwater, this water being used as source for drinking water production, ending up with drinking water that may contain pharmaceutical residues. The effect of pharmaceuticals on flora and fauna in aquatic ecosystems is also considered.

The conference aims to intensify contacts between professionals, scientists, engineers, water managers (river basin administrators, etc.) and policy makers involved in the field (conference themes) of
(A) wastewater treatment,
(B) surface waters,
(C) groundwater,
(D) drinking water supply,
(E) aquatic ecosystems, and
(F) legislation (setting water quality standards).

Target groups and keywords

Target groups are professionals, scientists, engineers, water managers (river basin administrators, etc.) and policy makers involved in the themes (A) wastewater treatment, (B) surface waters, (C) groundwater, (D) drinking water supply, (E) aquatic ecosystems, and (F) legislation (setting water quality standards).

It includes activities characterised by the following keywords: pharmaceuticals, hormones, pharmaceutical residues, water quality, drinking water quality, hydrology, geohydrology, unsaturated zone, subsurface environment (porous medium, fractured-rock medium), groundwater, surface waters, drinking water, monitoring, modelling, transport in groundwater, decay and transformation processes, metabolites, chemistry, hydrochemistry, biohydrochemistry, geochemistry, waste water treatment, drinking-water production, environmental impact, aquatic ecosystems, ecotoxicological effects.
