Royal Society of Chemistry Christmas Conference - call for papers
News from the LAQN

2017 has seen issues relating to poor air quality continue to remain high on the public and political agendas. While there is general consensus on the benefits of reducing ambient concentrations of nitrogen dioxide, ozone and particulate matter, there are many open questions about the priorities for maximum health benefits, the changing sources of these pollutants, and the best ways to reduce exposure to the public. All these questions need to be addressed using reliable evidence.

Building on the success of this long-running annual event, this conference will present an update on a range of relevant topics. As in previous conferences, the presenters will include internationally recognised experts, and there will also be opportunities for a range of contributed talks and posters, providing a broad and up-to-date survey of the measurement, regulatory and scientific issues affecting air quality.

The conference will again be held in collaboration with Defra's Air Quality Expert Group, and will include sessions based on recently-published AQEG reports, and topics AQEG are currently scoping, to help gather relevant evidence. These sessions are expected to focus on effects on air quality from biomass burning, shipping, and assessing the effectiveness of local scale interventions such as traffic controls and Clean Air Zones.
