Cooperating partners

About: Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (IDAEA) is an environmental science institute in the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), devoted to the study of the human footprint on the biosphere. Much of our research is centred on two of the great environmental challenges of our time: the cleanliness and availability of water and the quality of air, guided by the principle that our scientific understanding of current threats to global ecosystems is best approached from a holistic, systems-based viewpoint. The institute excels at the analysis of organic and inorganic pollutants and their impact on ecosystems, the study and management of water resources, the development of algorithms in chemometrics, and the study of inhalable particulate matter and toxic gases.
Recently awarded with the distinctive Centre of Excellence “Severo Ochoa” (2020-2023), this distinction shows the high-quality scientific leadership and global impact of the work developed at IDAEA.
In a globalised world, where human society is expanding at an unprecedented, accelerating rate, it is the scientific research like the one developed at IDAEA that can help to analyse the environmental problems, providing hard data for policy making, and offering sustainable and innovative solutions to solve them.
The Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research(IDAEA) achieves the official partnership with Water Emerging Contaminants & Nanoplastics. Their members receive article process charges waived at the journal early development stage and will enjoy discounts on the article process charges permanently.

2nd UN Ocean Decade Regional Conference & 11th WESTPAC International Marine Science Conference

Time and Venue: 22-25 April 2024 | Bangkok, Thailand

To ensure ocean science can fully support countries in achieving sustainable development of the ocean, seas, and marine resources, the United Nations proclaimed a Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030) (the ‘Ocean Decade’) in 2017, which offers all ocean stakeholders a unique and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to shape a better ocean science agenda and connect ocean science more closely to our society. Responding to the global call for actions, the UN Ocean Decade Regional Kick-off Conference for the Western Pacific and its adjacent areas was held on 25-26 November 2021, marking the beginning of the region-wide efforts in the development and implementation of substantive Decade Actions.


Time and Venue: 2-3 May 2024 | Porto, Portugal

The conference will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in the field to share ideas, designs, and experiments. Participation from academia, industry, and the government is welcome.

6th International Congress on Water, Waste and Energy Management

Time and Venue: July 20-22th, 2022 | Rome, Italy
About: The 6th International Congress on Water, Waste and Energy Management (WWEM-22) has the objective of creating an international forum for academics, researchers and scientists from worldwide to discuss worldwide results and proposals regarding the soundest issues related to Water, Waste and Energy Management.
The 6th International Waste Water Conference Call will include the participation of renowned keynote speakers, oral presentations, posters sessions and technical conferences related to the topics dealt with in the Scientific Program, as well as an attractive social and cultural program.
This International Waste Water Conference Call will also be aimed at companies and/or institutions to present their products, services, innovations and research results. If you or your company is interested in participating in this exhibition, please contact the Technical Secretariat here.
Finally, on behalf of the Organizing Committee, I would like to invite all the Scientific Community to participate in this project, presenting papers or communications related to any of the proposed topics.
Looking forward to welcoming you in Rome!

18th Annual Workshop On LC-MS/MS in Environmental Analysis and Food Safety

Time and Venue: October 10-11, 2022 | Barcelona, Spain
About: Following the success of the previous 17 International workshops on LC-MS/MS in environmental analysis and food safety (Barcelona 2005, Barcelona 2006, Guelph, Ontario 2007, Barcelona 2008, Toronto 2009, Barcelona 2010, Buffalo 2011, Barcelona 2012, Toronto 2013, Barcelona 2014, Burlington, 2015, Barcelona 2014, Buffalo 2017, Barcelona 2018, Miami Beach 2019, Barcelona 2020-virtual and Ottawa-2021 virtual) we are presenting here the 18th International workshop on emerging high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS), as well as on LC-MS/MS applications in environmental analysis and food safety. The conference is planned to be IN PERSON.
The main objective of the workshop is to evaluate practical aspects of the usefulness of high-resolution mass spectrometry and tandem mass spectrometric techniques for screening and quantitation of organic contaminants in environmental and food samples. The following practical aspects and state of the art applications will be discussed:
– Advances in HRMS instrumentation and their applicability in environmental analysis and food authenticity;
– Non-Target Analysis (NTA) and Bioinformatics applied to environmental and food samples;
– Advanced Wastewater Based Epidemiology (WBE) for public health;
– Green Analytical Chemistry using HRMS and/or LC/MS-MS applied to environmental and food analysis;
– Large number of applications in environmental analysis and food authenticity such as water and soil/ sediment, biota and food, like fruits and vegetables, juices, and meat.
