MICRO2018 Fate and Impact of Microplastics: Knowledge, Actions and Solutions (19-23. November 2018)

While the impacts of microplastics in marine ecosystems have been reported in the literature since the 1970s, many questions remain open. MICRO 2018 provides an opportunity to share available knowledge, fill in gaps, identify new questions and research needs, and develop commitments to operationalise solutions; MICRO 2018 will be a chance to reconvene, share what we have learned, and generate momentum for the work that remains to be done.

The scientific community and stakeholders are invited to participate in MICRO2018. This international conference will take place from 19 – 23 November 2018, Lanzarote, Spain.

Participants are invited to submit abstracts for oral or poster presentations on the following topics:

• Marine Ecosystems
• Freshwater bodies
• Social change and behaviour
• Human health
• Policy

We welcome complementary sessions or side events, please submit your proposal by 7 March 2018.
