The fifth International Symposium on Nanotechnology, Occupational and Environmental Health (NanOEH) will provide a high quality of professional presentations to scientists and engineers who wish to promote and communicate the interaction between technical advances and societal, occupational and environmental impacts in the field of nanotechnology research.

This international symposium will be the fifth in a series recognised for the high technical quality of its biennial conference.  The goal is to bring researchers and practitioners together to share the latest knowledge on nanotechnology-specific risks to occupational health and the environment and assessing how to reduce these potential risks.

Three parallel sessions are planned for Day 1 and Day 2, with the following subject areas:

  • Nanoparticle toxicity and related topics (toxicity screening techniques, biomarkers of exposure, epidemiology, etc.). 
  • Nanoparticle occupational health and safety (worker exposure assessment, exposure control techniques, good practices, fire and explosion, personal protective equipment, etc.). 
  • Nanoparticle environmental release and exposures, and responsible development (societal, ethical and policy issues, regulations, life cycle assessment, etc.).
Day 3 will feature round table and panel discussions.
The deadline for online registration is the 22nd July 2011.
