On behalf of the organising committee, it gives us great pleasure to invite you to participate in the next Society for Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) Australasia Conference on the beautiful Gold Coast, in Queensland, Australia from the 4th - 6th September 2017.   The theme of the conference is:  The role of environmental toxicology and chemistry in a changing environment.

SETAC is a not-for-profit, worldwide professional organization comprised of nearly 6,000 individuals and institutions in 100 countries. SETAC is dedicated to the study, analysis and solution of problems related to contaminants and other stressors in the environment. Our mission is to support the development of principles and practices for protection, enhancement and management of sustainable environmental quality and ecosystem integrity.

This meeting will provide an opportunity for delegates from academia, industry, and government to discuss the latest research in the field of environmental toxicology and chemistry. Set amongst the amazing beaches, World Heritage-listed rainforest, and vibrant city nightlife of the Gold Coast, this Conference is not to be missed!

The Conference will be held at the Sofitel Hotel in Broadbeach, a luxury hotel less than five minutes walking distance from the beach, and situated amongst a wide variety of excellent restaurants and shops. A comprehensive Scientific Program will be complemented by a variety of exciting social activities, which will take advantage of the outstanding food and wine on offer in Broadbeach, the Gold Coast’s premier dining district.

We look forward to welcoming you to the sunny Gold Coast!
