Evolving Science In Changing Times

41st Aquatic Toxicity Workshop (ATW)

Ottawa, ON – September 28 to October 1, 2014

The 41st Aquatic Toxicity Workshop will be held in Ottawa, Ontario in 2014. The theme of this year’s event is Evolving Science in Changing Times, a reflection of new session topics and a new venue type. There are also exciting plans to put “the workshop” back in ATW….. stay tuned for interactive sessions to be announced.

Our goal is to make this ATW a must attend event.


ATW 2014 will be held at the Ottawa Convention Centre which opened in 2011. It’s conveniently located downtown and easily accessible by all forms of transportation.
