The purpose of the Symposia is to provide a forum for a discussion on a well-defined topic in environmental epidemiology.
Typically, a Symposium consists of a short introduction, a series of brief presentations by invited speakers on the chosen topic, followed by a discussion among symposium participants. Each session will last 90 minutes.
17 Symposium sessions will be held during the ISEE2016 Conference.
