from the Chairs

On behalf of the International Advisory Board and Local Organizing Committee, we are pleased to announce the 2016 International Nanotoxicology Congress, which will take place in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, on June 1 – 4, 2016. This conference is the 8th in a continuing series of international meetings that are broadly focused on nanotoxicology, one that began in Boston in 2006. Thus, it is fitting that we return to this beautiful and historic city for our 10th anniversary meeting.

The objective of this conference is to bring together scientists from academia, industry, government agencies, and non-governmental organizations to present current research findings, focus their respective talents and expertise, and initiate new collaborations in an effort to ensure the safe implementation of nanotechnology. The Advisory Board is working now to develop the scientific program for this conference, which will include plenary lectures, symposia, workshops, poster sessions, and dedicated time for presentations by young scientists.

We would like to specifically recognize two organizations that have provided support, without which the 2016 conference would not have been possible. An early gift from the Turkish Society of Toxicology following the 2014 conference covered initial logistical costs. In addition, we are very grateful to the Sustainable Nanotechnology Organization (SNO) for negotiating and signing the conference venue contract, thus assuming the most significant costs associated with putting on an event of this size.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Boston for the 2016 Nanotoxicology Conference!
