International Conference on Deriving Environmental Quality Standards for the Protection of Aquatic Ecosystems (EQSPAE – 2011)

3-7 December 2011, Hong Kong

Dear EMAHK members,

I am writing to cordially invite you to join the first “International Conference on Deriving Environmental Quality Standards (EQS) for the Protection of Aquatic Ecosystems (EQSPAE 2011)” which will be held during 3-7 December 2011 at the University of Hong Kong.  With the generous financial support from the Environment and Conservation Fund of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government, we are able to bring internationally renowned scientists to the EQSPAE Conference to share their experience and the latest developments in the field of EQS.

Prior to the Conference, two concurrent training workshops will be held on 3 December 2011, focusing on how to derive water and sediment guidelines. Followed by the workshops, there will be a field trip to Mai Po Nature Reserve which will be organised on 4 December 2011. Ample networking will be possible with a complement of mixing party, receptions, and other meals being served during the breaks in the program. There will be poster sessions and networking drinks, with the conference dinner again expected to be a highlight of the social program.

As a token of thanks for the continued support by the EMAHK, we would like to offer EMAHK members a discounted rate – 50% off – to attend the EQSPAE-2011 events. To enjoy this special rate, please register at http://hkuems1.hku.hk/hkuems/ec_regform.aspx?EM=Y&UEID=17798
