WWEM2018, November 21 and 22, 2018

The EFASIG were invited to participate at the WWEM2018 Conference, Exhibition and Workshops, The International Centre, Telford, which was held on November 21 and 22, 2018. There was a change in the arrangements and format for the meeting compared to EFASIGatWWEM2014 and 2016 as explained below.

 A two day analytical meeting covering November 21 and 22 was subsequently arranged by the WWEM organisers with the RSC SSG and WSF groups and presenters identified with EFASIG were accommodated on Day 2 of the two day event in appropriate sessions.

The themes for the EFASIG sessions of the meeting were finalised as Passive Sampling, Waste Water Screening and Sensing Water Quality.

The EFASIG Keynote speaker was to be Dr Detlef Jensen, European Specialist, Thermo Fisher Scientific, but on the day of the meeting he was unfortunately taken ill and his colleague, Wai Chi Man, presented the keynote in his place, very lucidly and excellently.

The following EFASIG and related presenters included:

Prof. Gary Fones, University of Portsmouth

John Quick, ALS Environmental

Ms Sian Davies, BP

Dr Detlef Jensen, Thermofisher Scientific, EFASIG invited Keynote
