The Organizing Committee , 1. New application of nanomaterials Leading to actual societal benefices: water purification, soil remediation, nanomedicine, etc. 2. Exposure Case studies, data base, modeling. 3. Detection and Characterization New methods, monitoring, complex media (air, water, biological fl uids). 4. Toxicology Alternative methods vs. in vivo studies; high throughput methods for nanotoxicology nanoparticles references for nanotoxicology. 5. Environmental interactions of nanomaterials Environmental toxicology: in-situ observation, transformation and fate. 6. Nanomaterials release In use, ageing, accidental, etc. 7. Industrial production and prevention Safe equipment, collective and individual protection, safer by design approach, static and dynamic containment. 8.
