14th International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant | 8-13 September 2019 | Krakow,Poland
The Chairman of the ICMGP 2019, Prof. Józef Pacyna, is inviting you – on behalf of the Scientific Steering Commitee – to the 14th International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant (ICMGP 2019):
“We look forward to welcoming you in Krakow, the city that has traditionally been one of the leading centers of Polish and European academic, cultural and artistic life. The ICMGP 2019 Conference will be a very important step in assessing the completeness of our knowledge on mercury as a global environmental pollutant on one side, and implementation of solutions to reduce the emissions and exposure to this pollutant on the other side. In this way, the Conference will be the first major event of testing the efficiency of implementation of the Minamata Convention in various parts of the world. Needs for improvement of our knowledge on mercury in the environment, as well as measures of improvement of the Minamata Convention implementation efficiency will be discussed. Therefore, the theme of the ICMGP 2019 is:
Bridging knowledge on global mercury with environmental responsibility, human welfare and policy response.
We truly believe that the ICMGP 2019 Conference will be the main place to review our knowledge on mercury research and implementation of its results for reduction of our exposure to this dangerous pollutant. The Conference will also be the place to define future research avenues and policy directions for meeting the targets presented in the various environmental programs and organizations aiming at lowering the presence of mercury in the environment, with a prominent example of the Minamata Convention. The 14th ICMGP will be organized in a newly opened interna
tional ICE Krakow Congress Centre, which easily accomodate the anticipated number of participants of about 1000, including scientists, policy makers, representatives from industry, producers of monitoring and emission control equipment, and others.Krakow is already gearing up to welcome the participants of the 14th ICMGP in 2019.”
