Dear Colleague:

On behalf of the organizing committee we cordially invite you to present and attend EmCon2014 being held at the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa USA.

This meeting will bring scientists from across the globe together to discuss their latest research findings on the fast changing topic of emerging contaminants. A plenary session format will be used for the entire program (e.g. no concurrent sessions) in order to provide all speakers an undivided audience and the attendees the opportunity to see every presentation. World-class speakers are already in place for the opening reception to start off this exciting program. To maximize networking opportunities, multiple social events have been organized including the opening reception, poster session, and banquet at historic locals (see example picture) providing a unique atmosphere for this conference. Highly interactive poster sessions continue EmCon’s tradition of engaged discussions. Detailed information can be found at www.emcon2014.com<http://www.emcon2014.com>.
