On behalf of the conference organizers, it is my great pleasure to invite you to the 36th AAAR Annual Conference to be held October 16-20 at the Raleigh Convention Center in Raleigh, North Carolina. We expect the conference to provide an outstanding venue for sharing our latest aerosol science and technology research, while networking and re-connecting with colleagues.
The 2017 Conference will feature a full slate of tutorials on Monday on a wide range of aerosol science topics including the popular "Hands-on Aerosol Instrumentation Design and Measurement" tutorial.
An exciting array of plenary talks, special symposia, poster sessions, platform presentations, and special events will take place from Tuesday morning through Friday noon. As is the AAAR tradition, each of these days will start with an 8 a.m. plenary lecture. Our outstanding lineup of plenary speakers for 2017 includes Andrea Ferro (Clarkson University), Markus Kraft (University of Cambridge), Joel Thornton (University of Washington), and Vicki Grassian (UC San Diego/Scripps Institution of Oceanography).
The exhibit area, open Tuesday through Thursday, will provide opportunities to engage with and learn from leading companies offering instrumentation and services in aerosol science and technology. On Wednesday morning at 6:30 a.m. we will have a 5K group run/walk. On Thursday afternoon, we have arranged for technical tours to the Environmental Protection Agency laboratories. You can sign up for these events when registering for the conference.
We will have five symposia designed to bridge multiple areas and promote cross-disciplinary interaction on the following topics:
Explore the latest advances in measurement technology, data quality assurance, and data uses
One of A&WMA's most well attended events, this conference provides a forum for current advances in measurement technology covering all aspects of air quality, including ambient air, indoor air, point sources, and area sources. Professionals from academia, consulting, industry, government, and manufacturers will gather to hear the latest information on available technology, including new monitoring networks and regulations from industry and government experts, as well as citizen and community monitoring efforts.
Air quality issues related to greenhouse gas measurements, ambient monitoring, fugitive and area source air measurements, quality assurance, and data uses in order to improve models, emission inventories, and policy decisions will also be addressed. Includes multiple concurrent sessions, 20+ vendor exhibits, and plenty of networking time.
The 2017 Atmospheric Composition and Chemistry Observations and Modelling Conference (ACCOMC) will be held at Murramarang Beachfront Nature Resort from 8-10 November. The aims of the meeting are:
Students and early career researchers are particularly encouraged to attend and present their work. International researchers are also very welcome to attend!
