Welcome Message

Dear colleagues and friends,

On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee, we thank you for your interest in being a part of the 43rd International Symposium on Halogenated Persistent Organic Pollutants – Dioxin2023 to be held 10-14 September 2023, in Maastricht, The Netherlands. The first return of the meeting in Europe for the last 5 years and 12 years after the memorable Dioxin2011 edition in Brussels!

We are proud to be able to continue the tradition of the symposium series as an interdisciplinary forum for communicating scientific advances and emerging issues in a friendly atmosphere. We are even further happy as we will revive the true essence of the event as an international face-to-face meeting in Europe

As expected, Dioxin2023 will focus on the science of dioxins and additional persistent organic pollutants following major advances in analytical determination, the understanding of emission, transport, fate, degradation, toxic behaviour, regulations, along with the growing attention in developing countries and global pollution issues.

Up to 1000 delegates are expected to register for the event, classically representing more than 500 abstracts (200 are oral presentations and 300 are posters) presented in up to 5 parallel sessions during 4 days.

In conjunction with the Symposia, there will be an exhibition involving instrumentation, chemical products, accessories, analytical companies, scientific journals, legal entities, research centres… The exhibition will form an integral part of the symposia and coffee breaks will be held in the exhibition area.

We hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity to be a Dioxin2023 sponsor/exhibitor, and to gain from the interactions with students, academics, and science professionals from around the world. We want to maximize your organization’s exposure to this diverse group and encourage you to work with us to customize a sponsorship package for the conference that best suits your needs.
