The Joint Research Centre's Environment Institute, in collaboration with the Netherlands' National Institute of Public Health and Environmental Protection (RIVM), is organizing a working conference on "Long-term perspectives for effects of rural land use changes on soil contaminants". It will take place in Arona, Italy, on 8-10 June 1995.

The conference will focus on the vulnerability of soils to the mobilization of chemicals due to changes in land use and will encourage a multidisciplinary approach to delayed and non-linear processes.

In particular, the aims of the conference are to:

- Assess the possible implications of land use changes on the mobilization and immobilization of contaminants in the soil;
- Provide a state-of-the-art review of the underlying processes and their modelling, aimed especially at indirect non-linear responses;
- Provide a set of guiding principles on management options for policy makers;
- Identify important gaps in knowledge requiring research.
