The increasing accumulation of plastic pollution in the environment has been reported in the literature for more than 50 years and microplastics as a threat since 2004. Alongside, questions about plastics have also continued to multiply as the research community grows and public concern heightens. MICRO 2022 provides an opportunity to share what we know, fill in gaps, identify new questions and develop commitments to operationalise this knowledge into meaningful actions addressing plastic pollution from Macro to nano.
Building upon the stimulating work shared during MICRO 2016, MICRO 2018 and MICRO 2020, We are delighted to invite the scientific community and stakeholders to participate in:
MICRO 2022, Atlas Edition: Plastic Pollution from MACRO to nano.
The international conference will take place from 14-18 November 2022.
Steps to come:
- Topics and Local Nodes applications by May 14th;
- May 14th -September 14th, Call for abstracts;
- September 18th, Abstract review decisions;
- October 14th, Final program and local nodes structure;
- November 14th-18th, MICRO 2022.
Given the current uncertainty about the COVID-19 pandemic for this coming November 2022, we will keep our biennial international conference substantially online-based with Local Nodes.
MICRO 2022 will be a chance to reconvene, share, and generate momentum for the work that remains to be done.
