The 8th International Conference on Marine Pollution and Ecotoxicology - Hong Kong

 20/06 - 24/06

The success of the past seven “International Conferences on Marine Pollution and Ecotoxicology” held in 1995, 1998, 2001, 2004, 2007, 2010 and 2013 has made this Conference series as a signature event in the international arena of marine pollution research. Building on this success, the 8th International Conference on Marine Pollution and Ecotoxicology (ICMPE-8) will be held from 20 to 24 June 2016 at The University of Hong Kong (HKU).  It is jointly organized by the School of Biological Sciences, HKU and the State Key Laboratory in Marine Pollution.
