Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 2nd Marine NanoEcoSafety Workshop (MANET) to be held in Palermo, Italy, at the Area della Ricerca of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, 17-18 November 2014.

The 2nd MANET is open to all researchers from Academia and Industry as well as stakeholders interested in the area of Marine EcoSafety of Nanomaterials (NM) and offers a unique opportunity to discuss the state of the art and future challenges of this emerging research area.

On the occasion of the 2nd MANET workshop, we are particularly proud to present a list of eminent keynote speakers:

  • Laura Canesi
    University of Genoa, Genoa (Italy)
  • Gary N. Cherr
    University of California, Davis (USA)
  • Richard D. Handy
    Plymouth University, Plymouth (UK)
  • Heather Leslie
    Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam (NL)

Parallel sessions will be organized on the following topics:

NM interactions at marine ecosystem level
NM fate and behavior in salt water
NM mechanisms of toxicity
Model/target marine organisms from invertebrates to fish
Nano frontiers in the marine environment: from nanoplastics in marine litter to nanoremediation

With the combination of outstanding science and the fascinating art, history and culinary traditions of Palermo, we look forward to welcoming you to our 2nd MANET Workshop in Palermo.
