40th AMOP Technical Seminar on Environmental Contamination and Response

Dear AMOP authors/presenters/attendees/exhibitors,

We regret to inform you that the 40th AMOP Technical Seminar on Environmental Contamination and Response originally scheduled to take place June 6-8, 2017 in Alberta, Canada has been delayed until late September or early October 2017 timeframe.

A recent series of developments arose while securing the venue that made it necessary for the AMOP Organizing Committee to make this decision.  We assure you that this decision was not taken lightly and only made after all possible avenues were explored. 

On behalf of the AMOP Organizing Committee we regret any inconvenience that may result from this decision.

The peer review and paper submission process is complete. Staff from the Emergencies Science and Technology Section (ESTS) will work with the Session Captain and author’s to confirm participation and next steps. ESTS has initiated measures to communicate with commercial vendors and update necessary paperwork for those requiring revised travel documentation. In consideration of the impact this may have, we will be working to update and address issues and concerns of participants.

We will inform you of the revised schedule for the 40th AMOP Technical Seminar in the coming weeks as soon as the arrangements have been confirmed.

If you have any questions please contact:
