Welcome


WMFmeetsIUPAC – the joint conference of the 11th Conference of The World Mycotoxin Forum® and the XVth IUPAC International Symposium on Mycotoxins – takes place in Belfast, Northern Ireland, 14-16 October 2019. The event will build on the success of the previous conferences held in Rotterdam, the Netherlands (2012) and Winnipeg, Canada (2016).

‘Looking beyond horizons’ – the conference theme – alludes to both the finishing line of large-scale research programmes on mycotoxins and to the necessity to put more emphasis on countries where mycotoxins present a concern to human and animal health. 'Looking beyond horizons' requires us to consider the next steps for effective mycotoxin management along the food and feed chain.

The aim of WMFmeetsIUPAC – the world’s largest mycotoxin event – is to increase the awareness of human and animal health risks due to mycotoxin contamination. It offers a platform for the food and feed industry, science and regulatory authorities to exchange current knowledge, to promote harmonisation of food and feed safety regulations and control procedures, and to make recommendations for integrated strategies ensuring the safety and security of the food and feed supply chain.

WMFmeetsIUPAC offers an excellent way to network and to share ideas, providing a reference source for anyone involved in this field. The event will include:

  • presentations and discussions in plenary meetings and parallel sessions
  • poster sessions
  • company pitches covering a wide range of topics
  • workshops and demonstrations
  • a concurrent exhibition providing information on equipment, products, and services

High-quality speakers, ample time for discussions, and every opportunity to establish rewarding contacts are values WMFmeetsIUPAC wants to uphold. And the event also promises to have an interesting social programme. The General Conference Chairs – Prof. Rudolf Krska and Prof. Chris Elliott – and the members of the Steering Committee and the Advisory Committee are looking forward to meeting you.


See you in Belfast!
