Conference emphasis will be on practical, science-based field applications. The program will focus on development of standard mold protocols considering moisture dynamics, occupant sensitivity, analytical techniques, use, misuse and interpretation of microbial testing, response options and verification. Critiques of existing guidelines, discussion of litigation methodology and new technologies are also welcome. The conference format will include the following four sessions with example topics listed:

o Assessment-building inspection techniques, moisture evaluation;

o Testing-sampling and analytical procedures, new technologies, data interpretation;

o Health-health effects, screening procedures, causation, susceptibility; and

o Remediation-removal/treatment options, site controls, personal protection and verification.

The conference will be of interest to investigators (e.g., hygienists, engineers, physicians and public health officials), laboratory analysts and managers, stakeholders (e.g., building owners and managers, insurance industry, public interest groups) and federal, state and local government representatives.
