44th Canadian Ecotoxicity Workshop (CEW 2017)
Event Date: October 1 - 4, 2017
Event Location: Guelph, Ontario – October 1-4, 2017
Formerly known as the Aquatic Toxicity Workshop (ATW), CEW is Canada’s predominant annual meeting in the field of ecological toxicology and related disciplines. It provides the opportunity to share information on current and emerging topics of regional, national and international importance related to contaminants in ecosystems, both aquatic and terrestrial. Participants include students, academics, government scientists and regulators, environmental consultants and industry representatives.
The Aquatic Toxicity Workshop (ATW) became a registered Canadian corporation in 1984. In 2014, the Board of Directors voted to modify the operating name to Canadian Ecotoxicity Workshop (CEW) to reflect the broader scope of ecological toxicology issues addressed at the annual workshop. The corporate name remains as The Canadian National Aquatic Toxicity Workshop.
CEW is held annually in a different region of Canada to draw interest among a wider group of ecotoxicologists and to gain a national perspective of current and emerging issues. These three-day workshops are traditionally held in the fall, where 200-400 participants take in more than 150 platform and poster presentations.
