The Biomass Smoke in the Human Environment Workshop (BISMITHE II) is an interactive event designed to highlight the new and innovative techniques used to measure, assess and manage biomass smoke. Invited speakers will present on their specialist area, with a professional moderator used to facilitate the workshop panel sessions. Invited speakers include Dr Martin Cope (CSIRO) and Associate Professor Fay Johnston (University of Tasmania). The program also includes limited space for paper presentations. Submit an abstract to present your perspective on this important topic.
This workshop will be a forum for case studies and discussion in the field of drone led air quality applications. Dr Brendan Halliburton, Senior Research Scientist at CSIRO, will provide the keynote presentation on his innovative work investigating methane and Coal Seam Gas Wells, nitrogen dioxide emissions from blasting and the challenges and opportunities for direct and indirect drone monitoring techniques. For details, visit CASANZ19.
This workshop will feature conference keynote speaker Christine Rigby from the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority. The workshop will provide an in-depth examination of the air quality impacts of shipping and port operation, focusing on the technical aspects of emissions inventories, challenges associated with shared airsheds and incentives programs.

The three-day Introductory CALPUFF training course is aimed at individuals interested in air quality science who have a working knowledge of dispersion modelling. The objective of the course is to teach the proper use of CALPUFF through hands-on applications and give a thorough overview of dispersion modelling theory. This session is recommended for new users or those requiring a refresher in the operation of the modelling system, especially the new features that have been introduced in the past few years.
The advanced course is aimed at those who have already attended a three day introductory CALPUFF course or are experienced using the model. The course objective is to provide modellers with the latest CALPUFF updates and to discuss selected advanced problems. The day is meant to be informal and be more like a workshop where issues are discussed in an open forum. The instructor also has a range of technical subject material for presentation on many different subjects and a range of advanced ‘hands-on’ case study applications for the afternoon session.
