  • Facilitate networking and information-sharing among key stakeholders on PFAS topics
  • Identify important gaps in the science and policy to help inform future research

The conference organizers expect conference attendance to be approximately 400 people, including:

  • Local, state, and federal government officials
  • Academic researchers and students
  • Consultants and vendors
