This meeting is open to all organizations and institutions with interests in environmental mass spectrometry utilising chromatography and mass spectrometry across the spectrum of instrumentation and applications. Oral and poster presentations are invited for which abstracts (1 x A4) should be submitted by e-mail attachment to Chris Wright ( ) within two weeks of the meeting date, inclusive of title, presenter underlined, other authors, dept/division, affiliation, town/city location but not full address.

Registration forms are available on request by e-mailing for completion by the final deadline of June 30, 2017 or by downloading here.

Please note that presentations by postgraduates, early career scientists and experienced practitioners working in the areas within the remit of EFASIG are welcome so that there is a blend between the established and new. Invited keynote speakers to the sessions will be representative of both groups.

The organisers would appreciate your support and attendance as for previous meeetings.
