The 7th International Workshop on Biomonitoring of Atmospheric Pollution (BIOMAP 7) will be held in the city of Lisbon, Portugal, from June 14th to 19th 2015.
This is the third time that BIOMAP is organized in Portugal and it is a pleasure and an honor for Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) to organize such an important meeting of researchers, policy makers and practitioners in environmental sciences from all over the world.

There is a growing need for air and biological monitoring within the preventive context of identifying health hazards at the environment and of keeping them under control. Biomonitoring is a sensitive, selective and user-friendly method for air quality management. The objective of BIOMAP 7 is to promote knowledge on methods and strategies for workplace, indoor and ambient air monitoring. In addition to the specific issues related to biomonitoring as a technique, this workshop specifically addresses the potential use of biomonitoring data in assessing the human exposure to toxic substances.

BIOMAP 7 is expected to provide an opportunity for an interchange of ideas among researchers, policy markers and practitioners in environmental sciences.
