EHONANO 2019: Environmental and Occupational Health Aspects Related to Nano- and Ultrafine Particulate Matter

Date: 3 June 2019 00:00 to 06 June 2019 23:59

Environmental and Occupational Health Aspects Related to
Nano- and Ultrafine Particulate Matter
June 3-6, 2019, Loen, Norway

The National Institute of Occupational Health in Norway, the Norwegian Institute of Public Health and the North-West Russian Public Health Research Centre, St. Petersburg in collaboration with the Analytical Section of the Norwegian Chemical Society invite scientist and users of science to the first EOHNANO conference.

The conference offers opportunity to share and discuss recent experiences and to be scientifically updated through a number of lectures and posters given by  

international leading specialists in typical Norwegian informal surroundings. We look forward to your attendance at and participation in this scientific event.

Objectives and Main Topics

The main aim of the conference is to provide a forum to encourage the exchange of new knowledge and ideas how ultrafine and nano-sized particulate matter may affect human health and the environment.

The Organising Committee welcomes presentations focusing on:

  • Physiochemical characterization of engineered, combustion and unintentionally formed nano- and ultrafine particle (e.g. surface properties, agglomeration, solubility)
  • Measurement methodologies and exposure assessment of nano- and ultrafine particles (ambient, indoor and occupational exposure scenarios)
  • Health effects (experimental and epidemiological evidence)
  • Toxicological mechanisms (e.g. bio- and toxicokinetics, bioaccumulation)

Please submit your abstract by e-mail to by April 1, 2019


The conference venue will be the Hotel Alexandra located in the most beautiful Fjord and Glacier Districts of Norway. The hotel is recognised as one of the best conference venues in Norway.
