International Conference on Modelling, monitoring and Management of Air Pollution
The 20 - 22 July 2009 will take place in Tallinn, Estonia the Seventeenth International Conference on Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution. This is the 17th Annual Meeting in the successful series of International Conferences dealing with Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution. 

The goal of this conference is to bring together researchers who are active in the study of air contaminants and to exchange information through the presentation and discussion of papers dealing with the wide variety of topics listed opposite. Case study papers are encouraged, as well as papers of a more theoretical nature, dealing with advanced mathematical and computational methods, will also be within the scope of the Conference. 

Delegates attending Air Pollution 2009 will be invited to submit an expanded version of their paper for publication in the International Journal of Sustainable Development and Planning, associated with the Wessex Institute of Technology. Air Pollution is one of the most challenging problems facing the international community; it is widespread and growing in importance and has clear and known impacts on health and the environment. The human need for transport, manufactured goods and services brings with it impacts on the atmospheric environment at scales from the local to the global. The rate of development of the global economy brings new pressures and the willingness of governments to regulate air pollution is often balanced by concerns over the economic impact of such regulation. Science is the key to identifying the nature and scale of air pollution impacts and is essential in the formulation of policies for regulatory decision-making. Continuous improvements in our knowledge of the fundamental science of air pollution and its application are necessary if we are to predict properly, assess and mitigate the air pollution implications of changes to the interlinked local, regional, national and international economic systems.

3rd IWA conference, Barcelona

   Some 250 professionals and experts in pollution odours gathered in Barcelona at the third conference of the International Water Association (IWA) on Odours, organized by the Group Odournet, Labaqua SA and some other regional organisms and universities. 

  The event, held from Wednesday, October 8 until Friday, Oct. 9 at the Torre Agbar, was aimed at providing experts, lawmakers and interested participants from utilities and industries, academic institutions and research centers regulators with a forum to share the latest developments and perspectives on the issue of odour and its management to minimize impacts on the population.
