ISPTS CONFERENCES

The International Symposium on Persistent Toxic Substances and Health (ISPTS) is the premier event for scientists and experts to discuss the latest research progress and developments in the areas of persistent and emerging contaminants. Previous ISPTS, held since 2004, have been hosted and organized by prominent academic institutions around the world.

 

The ISPTS Organising Committee has postponed the conference three times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, ISPTS 2020 became first ISPTS 2020&2021 then ISPTS 2022, and now ISPTS 2024! ISPTS 2023 was held in Macau in September 2023.

The 18th International Symposium on Persistent Toxic Substances and Health (ISPTS-2024) will be held in Chania, Crete, Greece and is organized by the Technical University of Crete, The Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences of CAS, and Nanjing University.
