Dioxin 2017 will be the 37th Annual International Symposium on Halogenated Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs). The conference will be held in Vancouver, Canada, August 20th -26th August 2017.
Last year’s conference, Dioxin 2016 was held on the 40th Anniversary of the “Seveso” accident (July 10th, 1976) which so heavily spread anger and risks on a civil population and determined, for the first time ever in the world, a deep revision of relationships between humans, industry and environment. It has been said that there is a “before Seveso and after Seveso” perception of risks and promulgation of laws committed to better respect “Nature”. Very recently, in Paris, the whole world agreed to increase this commitment. It is therefore relevant to meet in Florence a mother city of Art Renaissance and also the city where Galileo worked and where the first modern experimental demonstration of “every life comes from a life” was made by Redi.
The 36th Dioxin Symposium continued according to its long scientific tradition of monitoring the large area of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) in different aspects as origin, metabolism, toxic effects, epidemiology as well the impact on populated and wild areas. A characteristic of the “Florence-Dioxin 2016” was the special attention to younger generation, both Students and Young Researchers. A Session with 5 minutes talks by 5 students directly followed the plenary lectures and every Session had a “Young Researcher” selected as a speaker. In addition, a significant number of grants were made available for these young Colleagues.
As in previous Symposia, the Scientific Program was complemented with exhibitors and vendor seminars, who presented their latest advances in the interested area. The Symposium venue was located in downtown Florence with many masterpieces located within easy walking distance. This year's symposium was a great success, enjoyed by delegates from all over the world. Wellington Laboratories were once again Platinum sponsors of the conference, providing over 500 guests with a delicious dinner, served at the Stazione Leopolda (an old train station in Florence).
