SETAC Australasia is a regional chapter of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) established in 2010 by the merger of the former Australasian Society of Ecotoxicology with SETAC.

The meeting brought together environmental toxicologists and chemists and promote knowledge sharing to achieve a healthier environment. As a tribute to the 2010/11 summer floods and cyclones, which affected many parts of Australia including the host city Brisbane, the special conference theme was on the impacts of extreme weather events and climate change on our fields. Of course all the usual suspects were also on the agenda.

We thank you for your participation in the in the 2nd SETAC Australasia Conference, July 4th to 6th, 2012.
