Event description: 

Since the first ICOBTE held in Orlando, Florida in 1990, the ICOBTE has been a highly successful conference series and has grown to become one of the most important international meetings on the biogeochemistry of both essential and toxic elements.

The general theme of the 15th ICOBTE in Nanjing is “Biogeochemistry of trace elements for improved environmental sustainability and human health”. This theme reflects the great challenges we all face in protecting our environment from contamination by toxic trace elements and in providing sufficient amounts of essential trace elements for human nutrition.

The conference will offer an excellent platform for scientists, regulators and environmental professionals working on trace elements across multiple disciplines to present the state-of-art research findings, exchange ideas, and discuss how the knowledge can be used for protecting our environment and for improving ecosystem and human health.
