12th Micropol & Ecohazard Conference moves to 2022


The organizing and scientific committees are very satisfied with the response to our call for papers, with the reception of more than 200 abstracts. We thank all authors for their confidence in this conference.

However, after exchanging the opinion with the members of the Specialist Group, the organizing committee decided to organize a fully face-to-face event, including not only the conference itself but also the social program that allows for a better networking.

Since this sanitary situation is still uncertain for next June 2021, we prefer to be cautious and move the conference to 2022. Therefore, the new dates proposed are 6-10 June 2022.

We apologize for any inconveniencies caused by this decision. Hopefully, in the meantime researchers from all countries can resume their works in the lab and gather interesting results to exchange in the conference.

Please note that the abstracts received so far will not be evaluated. We will start the process again, launching a new call for Abstracts in June 2021. Each author can decide if they want to resubmit the same abstract, a more updated version or a completely different work.

The news on vaccines makes us being confident on the possibility of framing again our scientific events based on personal contacts with researchers working on complementary topics.

We look forward to welcoming you to Santiago de Compostela in June 2022.

Chair and Co-chair of the Organizing Committee MICROPOL 2022
