Upcoming events with the Aerosol Society

On the 8th-9th November 2017 the Aersol Society will be holding two events at the University of Birmingham.

 

A course on the “Fundamentals of Aerosol Science 2017” will be held on the 8th November – find out more here.

This established and highly recommended course provides an opportunity for both new and existing researchers to explore and understand aerosol science and improve or refresh their knowledge of some of the fundamental concepts.

Delegates are also able to choose to attend an interactive exhibitor demonstration and training workshop where our industry exhibitors will be showcasing their aerosol related instruments and technology.

 

The Annual Aerosol Science Conference will be held on the following day. This year’s theme is “Pushing the Limits in Aerosol Measurements and Simulations“.

Now celebrating its 31st year, the conference provides a forum for like-minded aerosol scientists from both academia and industry to network & share knowledge.

Aerosol processes are extremely complex, occurring over wide ranges in timescale and lengthscale, and extending to dense sprays and clouds. Refined measurement and simulation techniques are essential to adequately capture the microphysical detail while describing collective large scale effects and identifying new phenomena.

A focus of this meeting will be to explore the challenges faced in aerosol characterisation and simulation and how these challenges are being addressed.

Deadline for abstracts – 6th October 2017

Congratulations to the Poster Awards winners at the 26th Japan Society for Environmental Chemistry Annual meeting

The 26th Japan Society for Environmental Chemistry Annual meeting was held in Shizuoka, Japan from 7 – 9th June 2017. This year’s event was attended by 700 people, with 156 oral presentations and 180 poster presentations.

Since 1990, the JEC has been working for the sound management of environmental chemicals through development of analytical techniques and waste treatment, understanding geochemical cycling of elements and molecules, and risk assessment. In order to facilitate communication between researchers and stakeholders in different countries, the JEC has held international conferences for exchanging knowledge related to environmental pollution by micro-pollutants by cooperating with societies in foreign countries.

23rd International Symposium on Environmental Biogeochemistry

23rd International Symposium on Environmental Biogeochemistry (ISEB23), Palm Cove, Australia on 25-29th September 2017, hosted by the International Society for Environmental Biogeochemistry.

The Symposium brings together environmental scientists with a diverse range of interests in an intimate setting which encourages close interactions and exchange of information. A major attraction of the ISEB Symposia are their broad, cross-disciplinary coverage and single theme format. Attendance is typically 150 people.

The theme of this years symposium is “From cells to Earth scale processes: traversing the breadth of temporal and spatial scales in biogeochemistry” and includes sessions on:

  • Biogeochemistry of mined/industrial environments and impacts of resource extraction
  • Frontier techniques in environmental biogeochemistry and microbiology (e.g. –omics)
  • Aquatic and terrestrial microbiology including studies on extreme environments
  • Impacts of pollutants on ecosystems and their remediation
  • Biological interactions and transformations of metallic and organic contaminants in the environment
  • Soil, water and landscape processes (including atmospheric fluxes/interactions)
  • Microbe-mineral-organic matter interactions
  • Marine and coastal biogeochemistry (special focus on tropical coastal systems e.g. reefs)
  • Biogeochemical cycling of major (C, N, P, S) and minor elements – methods, applications, fundamental and applied studies

Key Dates:

Abstract deadline: 31st May 2017

Early Bird Registration: 28th July 2017

DOXIN 2017

International Symposium on Halogenated Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) – DIOXIN 2017 will be held on 20-25th August in Vancouver, Canada at the Sheraton Wall Centre.

The year 2017 marks the 37th anniversary of the Dioxin Symposia. In 1980, Otto Hutzinger organized the first symposium in Rome, Italy. Since then, annual symposia (except 1983) have been held in cities around the world. Over the past 37 years, there have been major advances in the analytical determination, and the understanding of the transport, fate and toxic behavior of these compounds. The year 2017 also marks the 150th anniversary of Canada. We will have numerous activities and celebrations showcasing Vancouver and Canada

This years conference will have over 60 sessions covering all expects of POPs and will include numerous special sessions, including new and emerging persistent organic pollutants (POPs) such as halogenated flame retardants and perflourinted chemicals.  Environmental Science: Processes & Impacts Advisory Board member, Stuart Harrad, will be presenting at the event.

Key Dates:

Abstract Deadline: 21st April 2017

Early Bird Registration: 30th June 2017

What’s new in the analysis of complex environmental matrices?

What’s new in the analysis of complex environmental matrices?

Royal Society of Chemistry

Environmental Chemistry Group, Water Science Forum and the Separation Science Group Joint Meeting

Friday 3rd March 2017

at

Science Suite, Royal Society of Chemistry, Burlington House, Piccadilly, LONDON, W1J 0BA

The analysis of environmental matrices such as water, sediments and soils is often demanding and challenging for the chemist due to both matrix effects and the myriad of substances that can be present in the sample. This one-day Royal Society of Chemistry Meeting, jointly organised by three special interest groups (Environmental Chemistry Group, Separation Science Group and Water Science Forum), addresses this issue. It is the third in sequence of biennial conferences. The meeting brings together national and two international experts on the topic. The monitoring and screening-type analyses of a wide range of both regulatory and emerging pollutants (such as pharmaceuticals and personal care products) in water is major theme of the event. The detection of potentially hazardous compounds in dusts and consumer articles is also considered. Other topics to be addressed include new types of detectors (i.e. ion mobility spectrometry, direct probe time-of-flight mass spectrometry and selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry) for measuring environmental chemicals. In addition to the lectures, there will an exhibition where number of instrument manufacturers and suppliers of laboratory consumables will be presenting.

Important Date

Registration Deadline: 28th February 2017
