We welcome submission of abstracts regarding brominated and other flame retardants, and encourage work on emerging flame retardants. The workshop will include both oral presentations and posters.
- Analytical chemistry
- Levels in the Environment
- Sources, Fate and Transport (including modeling)
- Human Exposure
- Fire Science

To facilitate review, you will be asked to indicate the general topic that your abstract fits into (selected from the list above).
You will be asked to indicate preference for oral presentation, poster presentation or either.
The presenting author must register for the conference by the registration deadline. Acceptance of a paper does not mean automatic registration.
Abstracts should be submitted by a designated, corresponding author (which may differ from the presenting author). Communication from the conference committee regarding acceptance of papers will be to the corresponding author. Make sure you provide an email address for the corresponding author.
At most two abstracts per presenting author will be allowed.
Instructions and forms for submission will be available on our website, www.bfr2011.org, on 22 February.
