• The Local Organisation Committee of Dioxin2020 together with the members of its Scientific Committee wish to express their gratitude to the French public partners and the international private sponsors for their strong support during the scientific event post-cancellation management phase. 
    These companies, specialists in persistent organic pollutants both in providing high quality reference standards, specific consumables necessary for their quantification and their High performance measurement by mass spectrometry, did not hesitate for a moment to grant part or all of the amount planned for their sponsoring budget to the Organisation Committee in order to limit the losses incurred by the cancellation of the symposium.

    We thank them once again for their precious and salutary support and we strongly encourage you to register and participate in their webinars. 
    Warmest greetings

    Updated information on 30th July 2020


  • The Covid-19 pandemic has had a major effect on events worldwide and also will impact our annual symposium. Since protection of health has the highest priority and governments have taken measures to confine people, close borders and other precautionary measures for unforeseeable periods, the Local Organizing Committee of Dioxin2020 together with the IAB (International Advisory Board) are forced to cancel DIOXIN 2020, scheduled from 30 August to 4 September 2020 in Nantes, France.
    It is with sincere regrets and great disappointment that we have made this decision, but the national and international circumstances do not allow for any other conclusion than cancellation. We do not know when conferences with large numbers of participants can be held again nor when borders and hotels will open again. Since the Dioxin Symposium is an annual conference and the hosts and locations for Dioxin2021, Dioxin2022, and Dioxin2023 are already confirmed and planning their meetings, postponing Dioxin2020 for one year is not an option.

    The Local Organizing Committee and the IAB are deeply saddened to have to cancel the Symposium because Dioxin2020 was progressing well. We are very grateful to you for considering submitting a paper and participating in the Dioxin2020 Symposium. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause in your plans and appreciate your understanding because of such extraordinary circumstances.

    We all hope to see you again at Dioxin2021!

    Dr. Heidelore Fiedler, Chair of the International Advisory Board
    Dr. Michael S. Denison, Chair of the International Advisory Board
