The International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant (ICMGP) has been held periodically since 1992 and has become the pre-eminent international forum for formal presentation and discussion of scientific advances concerning environmental mercury. The 2013 meeting in Edinburgh, Scotland, is expected to attract 700-1200 delegates.
The ICMGP in 2013 will be of particular public importance as this will be the year of the launch of the United Nations Environment Programme Global Legal Binding Treaty on Mercury. The ICMGP meeting is therefore perfectly timed to celebrate the official launch of the treaty and to discuss how to put the treaty into practice. This will be the perfect opportunity to match those looking to solve mercury-associated challenges with those who are qualified to give the most appropriate advice.
Submission for poster sessions are invited, as well as opportunities to sponsor, exhibit or volunteer. Please use the contact details below if you are interested.
