The Illinois Sustainable Technology Center (ISTC) and Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant (IISG) are co-organizing the Emerging Contaminants in the Aquatic Environment Conference (ECAEC17) which will be held on May 31 - June 1, 2017, in Champaign, IL.

The conference is an expansion of the successful conference on pharmaceuticals and personal care products in the environment held in April 2016. It will feature presentations and posters on the latest in emerging contaminant research, policies, and education. In addition, there will be opportunities for discussion with those interested in all aspects of emerging contaminants in the aquatic environment.

ISTC and IISG encourage researchers, educators, businesses, government officials, outreach and extension professionals, environmental groups, and members of the general public to attend the conference.

The event will take place at the I Hotel Conference Center in Champaign, IL. On May 31, oral sessions will run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. CDT, with a reception and poster session following from 4:15 - 6:00 p.m. On June 1, oral sessions and a panel discussion will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Registration will open mid-February. (Times are subject to change once the agenda is finalized.)
