The symposium will cover all aspects of environmental electroanalysis: instrumentation, electrodes, new methodology and advances in data analysis.

Topics will include but are not limited to:
• Continuous monitoring in the field, from pristine environments to heavily polluted sites, to ultra-trace analysis in the clean room
• Innovations in electroanalysis related to challenging field environments
• Methods for analysis of trace amounts of emerging contaminants

Symposium 2:
Sensing in Living Systems
Sponsored by: Division 1, Analytical Electrochemistry
Division 2, Bioelectrochemistry

This symposium will discuss a novel and current topic that is addressed for the first time in ISE Meetings. The symposium aims to present a broad overview on developments in electrochemical sensing systems and architectures for monitoring living cell activity, living microorganisms and plants, including medicine and clinical monitoring.
Three aspects of modern sensor research will be given special attention. The first focus is on miniaturisation down to the nanoscale and on techniques for the characterisation of these sensorial nanostructures in single cell, cell cultures, tissues, complex systems, microorganisms and microbial biofilms. With this, the symposium will follow the actual developments in methods of preparation and their application including, but not limited to: micro- and nano-electrodes for in-vivo biosensing, monitoring of living cells using redox probes, study of cell behaviours (e.g. cell signalling, metabolisms) using ion-monitoring techniques.
The second focus will be on the progress of non-invasive, continuous, multi-analyte and portable/wearable monitoring systems. From this perspective, the symposium aims to portray the state of the art on applications including, but not limited to: (gas-diffusion) electrode-thermoregulation, early-detection and evolution of physiological states and living-system-exposure to environmental factors. The third focus will be on all problems of in vivo sensing and animal models. To date, there has been little commercial exploitation, so this symposium sets out to identify strategic opportunities and the technical challenges they present.
