Message from the local organising committee

 

The Clean Air Society of Australia and New Zealand invites you to attend the 21st International Clean Air and Environment Conference to be held between 7-11 September, 2013 at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre at Darling Harbour. The Call for Abstracts has now closed and the Local Organising Committee (LOC) is delighted to announce that they received 225 abstracts for papers.

 

The LOC would like to thank all of the members who submitted an abstract. Successful authors will be notified shortly and completed papers are requested by 1 July, 2013.

 

The Theme of the Conference is Clean Air in a Changing Climate which reflects the increasing understanding that there is a nexus between air quality and climate change science. Within the overall Theme are four major streams, directly targeted towards air quality, namely:

 

  • Management and Policy, exploring the area of air pollution management at source level and government policy at the local, state and federal level. This stream will incorporate international approaches towards air quality and climate change governance.
  • Regional Issues, incorporating air pollution emissions, problems and solutions from mining, industry, bushfires, urban areas, natural vegetation and other regional sources. 
  • Health Risks and Benefits, recognising the relationships between air quality emissions and concentrations and a wide range of human health problems. 
  • Air Quality Tools, to include equipment, measurements, modelling, emissions inventories and other aspects of direct interest to air quality practitioners.

Four major awards will be presented at the conference, namely, Best Paper Overall, Best Poster, the Young Achiever Award and the Most Innovative Presentation.  The latter is a new award designed to encourage presenters to “think outside the box” in the way they deliver the key messages of their paper.  Visual aids, new technologies, props, use of visual aids, video etc. are all encouraged.

 

Six international keynote speakers will deliver presentations on the main theme. Their biographical details are available on the conference website at: www.casanz2013.com.

 

An Advanced Air Quality Management Workshop and seven Special Interest Group Workshops will be held on Saturday and Sunday prior to the conference. For further information, please visit the website. Workshop registrations may be made online. The Earlybird registration rate closes on 5 July, 2013. Further updates will be announced in future CASANZ newsletters and journals.

 

The Sponsorship and Trade Exhibition prospectus lists an extensive range of sponsorship opportunities available to companies, see: www.casanz2013.com. This conference provides a unique opportunity to extend your company's message and display products through exhibiting in an informal environment to all delegates, including potential clients.
