Location Florence, Italy

Dioxin 2016 will be held on the 40th Anniversary of the “Seveso” accident (July 10th, 1976) which so heavily spread anger and risks on a civil population and determined, for the first time ever in the world,  a deep revision of relationships between humans, industry and environment. It has been said that there is a “before Seveso and after Seveso” perception of risks and promulgation of laws committed to better respect “Nature”. Very recently, in Paris, the whole  world agreed to increase this commitment. 

The 36th Dioxin Symposium will continue according to its long scientific tradition of monitoring the large area of Persistent Organic Pollutants in different aspects as origin, metabolism, toxic effects, epidemiology as well the impact on populated and wild areas. You are invited to pay attention to the topics here described and submit your work to the Symposium.
