Subject: 08.06.08 QSAR2008 13th International Workshop on QSARs in the Environmental Sciences, Syracuse, NY
The 13th International Workshop on Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationships (QSARs) in the Environmental Sciences. June 8 - 12, 2008 Syracuse, New York http://www.syrres.com/qsar2008/about.asp International Workshops on QSARs in the Environmental Sciences, has been at the forefront of developments in predictive methods since the first Workshop was held in 1983. It is now a highly anticipated biennial event and is returning to North America after most recently being held in Lyon, France and Liverpool, England. The theme for the workshop (Credibility Purpose Opportunity) highlights both the importance of QSARs in addressing environmental issues in a changing world and the challenges that lie ahead. The International Workshop series has become an important forum for the early dissemination of all aspects of qualitative and quantitative structure-activity research and application. Over the last few decades, the QSAR discipline has emerged as a major scientific methodology to aid in our understanding of the behavior of chemicals in the environment as well as their potential to express adverse affects. The International QSAR Workshops, listed below, have been a significant contributor to this progress. Agenda: ====== Sunday, June 8th ---------------- 3:00 p.m. Introductory remarks Phil Howard and Jay Tunkel, Workshop Organizers Opening Session Keynote speakers * History of the QSAR Workshops Klaus Kaiser, Principal Investigator, TerraBase, Inc. * Credibility Al Leo, Pomona College and BioByte Corporation * Opportunity Terry Schultz, Emeritus Professor, College of Veterinary Medicine, The University of Tennessee 5:30 p.m. Opening Social Dinner provided Monday, June 9th - PURPOSE -------------------------- Morning Session Lunch (provided) Afternoon Session Topics anticipated to include: * Physical/chemical properties * Environmental fate parameters * Bioconcentration and bioaccumulation * Multiple model batteries Poster Session (posters will be available through the duration of the Workshop) Tuesday June 10th - PURPOSE --------------------------- Morning Session Topics anticipated to include: * Ecotoxicity * Human health endpoints * New and novel endpoints Lunch (provided) Afternoon Social Excursions Attendees will have the afternoon free for socializing and scientific discussion.
