Silver has a long history of varied uses in societies throughout the world,
yet little useful information on its environmental concentrations, chemical
forms and biological effects is available. These international conferences
provide a forum for examining the latest research results on sources,
biogeochemistry, state-of-the-art analytical methodology, environmental
cycling and biological effects of silver in the environment. The objectives
of these conferences are to synthesize current knowledge and to identify the
information needed to more accurately interpret silver's environmental
behavior and potential impacts.  

Sponsors of this year's conference include the University of Wisconsin Sea
Grant Institute, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Eastman Kodak
Company, McMaster University, Lund University Institute for Ecotoxicology,
Photo Marketing Association International, and Photographic & Imaging
Manufacturers Association, Inc.
