8th International Phosphorus Workshop – IPW8

The International Phosphorus Workshops (IPWs) are well-known for presenting the latest results of research into agricultural and environmental P cycles as well as new methods of P analysis. Recently, environmental problems arising from P surplus on the one hand side and the implications for food production posed by P deficiencies on the other have made fair and sustainable P distribution a societal challenge. Therefore, at the IPW8, P governance will be an important focus. In addition, given the research interests of the hosting Leibniz-ScienceCampus, the role of P in catalytic reactions and technical applications will debut as a workshop topic. Other topics, addressing subjects ranging from the atomic/molecular to the societal, are guaranteed to stimulate interesting and productive transdisciplinary discussions covered by the IPW8.

The 8th International Phosphorus Workshop will take place in Rostock, Germany, September 12–16, 2016. The workshop has been held regularly in the autumn of every 3rd year since 1995, convening at different locations. During this time, it has established itself as one of the most significant scientific phosphorus events. The workshops focus on different aspects of phosphorus research and attract scientists, experts, managers, policy-makers, and administrators from all over the world who are interested in scientifically sound sustainable phosphorus management.

Conference topics:

  • Phosphorus cycles and fluxes in the environment
  • Sufficiency and efficiency of phosphorus utilization
  • Phosphorus recycling: technologies and product applications
  • Syntheses of and with phosphorus-containing compounds
  • The development of advanced phosphorus analysis methods
  • From knowledge to action: phosphorus-related issues in politics and society
