28/08/2019 - Leuven, Belgium
The Scientific Committee of Occupational Toxicology (SCOT) of the International Commission on Occupational Health (ICOH) welcomes you tothe 11thInternational Symposium on Biological Monitoring in Occupational and environmental Health in Leuven, Belgium, on 28-30 August, 2019. The symposium is organized by SCOT in collaboration with other ICOH’s Scientific Committees,like the one on “Nanomaterial Workers’ Health”. You can enroll, submit abstracts and find more information on:https://kuleuvencongres.be/isbm-11.
The symposium is an ideal opportunity for you to share your work with world’s leading scientists, experts, practitioners and students in biological monitoring, to learn, discuss and share state-of-the-art knowledge on biomarkers of exposure, effect and susceptibility to occupational and environmental agents. ISBM-11 aims to present new research and methods on biomarkers and to promote the use of biomonitoring data as part of a prevention strategy in workplaces and the general environment and, therefore, it will also be of interest to professionals involved in risk assessment, regulation and control through the use and interpretation of human biomonitoring data.
The general topic of ISBM-11 is “Biomonitoring in Exposure and Human Health Assessment” comprising several topics that are more specific:
Methods to identify human internal exposure to environmental and occupational chemicals comprising:
• Novel analytical techniques and approaches (targeted vs untargeted analysis)
• High sensitive analytical methods for biomarkers assessment
• Accurate mass screening and identification of emerging pollutants and metabolites
• Alternative matrices for human biomonitoring
• Validation and use of new exposure biomarkers
• Analytical techniques for mixtures

Identification and assessment of biomarkers of effect: from mechanisms to risk assessment
• Epigenetic biomarkers
• “Omics”
• Susceptibility and early disease biomarkers
• Interplay between nutritional factors and chemical toxicity
• Stress biomarkers
• Genetic polymorphism and metabolic phenotype
• Metals and nanomaterial toxicity

Occupational and environmental exposure evaluation:
• Applying biomonitoring to chemical accidents
• Case and field studies on occupational exposures
• Dermal exposure and its contribution to the total body burden
• Population based studies and environmental exposures
• Maternal and children’s exposure
• Human biomonitoring and public health

Development of strategies to correctly use, interpret and manage biomonitoring data
• Modelling in biomonitoring
• Sharing data and joint analysis
• Biological limit (BLV), guidance (BGV) and reference (BRV) values
• Quality assurance of biomarkers
• Education and communication
• Ethical aspects of biomonitoring

Across-the-board and other issues relevant to human biological monitoring
Social events will include a planned welcomed drink and the conference dinner at the impressive De Hoorn Cafe (this is the former Stella Artois building). We look forward to welcoming you to Leuven for an enjoyable and successful conference showcasing the best in biomonitoring research worldwide.Leuven is located in the center of Belgium, not far from Brussels. Whether you land at Brussels Airport, arrive by train in Brussels-Midi or enter Belgium from any direction by car you are always within reach of Leuven. Leuven is a dynamic and thriving city of about 95,000 inhabitants in Flemish Brabant, Belgium.The historic centre is one of the most beautiful in Belgium. It is a true university town in which the town is more alive during the academic year (end of September till June), although there are a lot of events in Summer. The CatholicUniversity of Leuven (KU Leuven), with about 35,000 students every year, is the oldest catholic university in the world, founded in 1425 (www.kuleuven.be). KU Leuven is an institution for research and education with international appeal. All programmes at this University are based on the innovative research of its scientists and professors, being ranked among the best 50 universities worldwide.
