Emerging contaminants such as pharmaceuticals, antibiotics, hormones, personal care
products, nanoparticles, and their degradation products have been observed throughout
our ecosystem and in some cases in our drinking water. Emerging contaminants
have been associated with signifi cant environmental impacts, for examples selected
pharmaceuticals have been associated with feminization of fi sh and the non-steroidal
anti-infl ammatory drug, diclofenac, has been shown to be responsible for the catastrophic
decline in vulture populations in Asia. Thus, emerging contaminants present
numerous challenges for scientists, engineers, regulators and the public.
In March 2007, the fi rst EmCon conference (EmCon2007) was held in the historic city
of York (United Kingdom). The meeting consisted of 40 platform and 30 poster presentations
and was attended by more than 125 researchers and regulators from universities,
industry, national laboratories and regulatory organizations. The conference was
truly international with delegates from UK, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Spain, France,
Australia, India, Canada and USA. Because of the remarkable success of the 2007 conference
and the numerous advances made within the topic of emerging contaminants,
we invite you to attend EmCon2009 in Fort Collins, Colorado. This four-day event will
focus on the most recent developments and fi ndings concerning the occurrence, fate,
effects, and analysis of Emerging Contaminants in the Environment.
