Welcome!


On behalf of the Organising Committee, it gives us great pleasure to invite you to Brisbane to participate in the 2nd SETAC Australasia Conference, July 4th to 6th, 2012.

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 aims to bring 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 this year is on the impacts of extreme weather events and climate change on our fields. Of course all the usual suspects are also on the agenda.

We look forward to catching up with you there to share some of your latest research and findings.


Frederic Leusch and Beate Escher on behalf of the Organising Committee
