The Association of Chemistry and the Environment (ACE) is a non-profit-making scientific association founded in October 2000 by a group of European scientists. We aim to promote global contact between scientists in academia and research institutes, the commercial sector and social representatives within governmental and regulatory bodies to address environmental problems and to promote education in this area.
We strongly welcome scientists from diverse fields such as atmosphere science, biology, geology, industrial chemistry, medicine, sociology, soil science, toxicology and water science to play an active role within the organisation.

Plymouth University, 26-28th June 2012
This hands-on workshop will focus on methods for the determination of the macronutrients nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P). Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about, and discuss, quality issues pertaining to N and P analysis in water samples before embarking on a series of practical sessions. There will be an opportunity to get hand-on experience with techniques for the determination of N and P species in water samples: namely spectrophotometry using a segmented flow analyser (nitrate and phosphate), fluorimetry (ammonium), high temperature catalytic combustion (organic nitrogen). In addition, the application of flow injection techniques will be introduced to present attendees with ideas for building their own system for nutrient determinations.
The course will include lectures on analytical quality control and the cycling of N and P in aquatic systems and there will be ample opportunity for discussion, data analysis and interpretation, and networking.
The fee for this 3-day course will be £450, which includes pre-course materials, daily refreshments and lunch, and a workshop dinner on the 27th June.
For further details contact Dr Mark Fitzsimons (firstname.lastname@example.org). You can register online.

Advanced Instrumental Techniques for the Monitoring of Aquatic Environments - International Summer School
The International Summer School: “Advanced Instrumental Techniques for the Monitoring of Aquatic Environments” is organized within the framework of the Graduate Program in Environmental Sciences, offered by the Graduate School of the University of Nova Gorica.
The International Summer School (ISS) will be held in Nova Gorica, Slovenia, from 14-27 June 2012, and is aimed at graduate-level students who have research and future professional interests in water pollution and related environmental issues. Participants will have the opportunity to intensively interact with an international team of experts in the field of instrumental analytical chemistry and environmental science, and to present and discuss their own study and research interests. We have invited top scientists and lecturers from universities all over the world, who will offer lectures in the areas of chromatographic, spectroscopic, electrochemical, bioanalytical and hyphenated techniques.
The ISS will be organized as a series of intensive lectures and case study presentations, together with hands-on laboratory experience and field work. Participants will be able to earn 10 ECTS credits for completion of the ISS after their final evaluation.
Participants will have the opportunity to take part in the Thematic Workshop: Instrumental Analytical Methods for Environmental Monitoring", where they can also present the latest results of their research.

Dear colleagues and friends,
The Norwegian Chemistry Society (NKS), Group for Analytical chemistry (FAK) in co-operation with the European Association of Chemistry and the Environment (ACE) and the Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU) will arrange a 2-days international seminar on aspects related to the role of Chemistry science for the interdisciplinary efforts on combating expected negative effects of the currently occurring global climate. NKS and ACE are arranging this workshop as a contribution to the currently ongoing International Year of Chemistry (IYC 2011).
We cordially inviting all international experts and interested scientists to our seminar in Tromsø.
Location: FRAM Centre of Climate and Environmental Research in the Arctic, Tromsø
Registration deadline: 20.09.2011
For detailed information: See our web-page
Please consider participating and distribute this message also to other colleagues who might be interested in this topic.
With best regards, and hoping to seeing you all in Tromsø
