Welcome to the website of the "Microplastics workshop for early career researchers: Best practices and expert insights", which will be held at the Congressi Stefano Franscini, Monte Verità, Ascona, Switzerland, from 12 to 17 November, 2023.

Are you working in the area of plastics or microplastic research as part of your PhD or Postdoc? Are you looking for a venue to discuss the latest research, experimental design or want to think about your future career possibilities with the skills you have learned during your studies?

If so, this workshop is for you! We will learn about what to consider when preparing a publication, experimental conceptualization and design of experiments, analytical techniques, quality control, data visualization and contextualization. We will address fate, transport, ecotoxicology, and modeling of plastic particles.

Please note that the abstract submission is now closed. We no longer can accept any further submission or attendance requests.
