Dear colleagues:

Planning for the 37th annual Western Trace Organics Workshop (WTOW) is going very well. The organizing committee has been hard at work to bring you the Vancouver version of the WTOW. This workshop will be a great opportunity to discuss progress and present research relating to trace organics analysis. We invite you to make presentations of about 20 minutes duration (more time may be alloted if time permits). Since this is an informal scientific meeting, participants are encouraged to make presentations of ongoing or completed projects and research which may include analytical procedures for trace organic residues in a variety of matrices, method development, reports on problem areas, new analytical approaches, or any other related topics. We have room to accommodate a limited number of poster presentations. If you would like to present your work as a poster please let us know as soon as possible as they will be accepted as space permits.
