The aim of the conference is to identify gaps in information and address questions focusing on occupational health surveillance, exposure registries, and epidemiologic research involving nanotechnology workers. In each of these areas, this conference will:
- Share existing knowledge;
- Identify major issues;
- Examine successful approaches;
- Explore new approaches, techniques, and models.
This conference will enable members of the occupational safety and health community concerned with nanomaterials and the health of workers exposed to these materials to address fundamental questions and seek practical solutions for carrying out occupational health surveillance, developing exposure registries, and conducting epidemiological research. The conference will include invited and submitted papers, breakout sessions to allow for small group discussions, and poster presentation.
