The call for papers for the 7th IWA Odours and Air Emissions Conference, 25th-27th September 2017, is now open. The abstracts submission deadline is the 17th of February 2017. The Warsaw's conference will be the 7th event organized by IWA for odours and air pollution professionals.
A few hundreds of professionals from all over the world have shared their knowledge, experience and ideas in the last five previous conferences in London - 1998, Sydney - 2001, Singapore - 2003, Barcelona - 2008, Vitoria, Brazil - 2011 and San Francisco, California - 2013. Unfortunately the previous edition of the conference which had been planned in 2015 in Paris was cancelled.
The IV International Conference on Environmental Odour Management organizing committee welcomes your abstracts for oral presentations and posters. Please, notice that the abstract submission deadline is February 1, 2017.
In October 2016 we organized the first Odour Talks. The idea was to select key experts in several fields of odour management and to let them present a work of interest on the subject. To make this experience available to the rest of the world, we did a webcast online of the Talks. Some people subscribed to the webcast sessions and they could do online questions to the speakers. A few months after this experience, we have decided to make the videos available to everyone, so here you have the first Odour Talk by Mr. Jean-Michel Guillot.
Mr. Guillot is professor at the École de Mines d’Alès in France. He has published over 50 papers on international journals and conference proceedings and he is involved in almost any initiative related with the management of odours in Europe. To date he is a member of the CEN Working Group 41 that is dealing with instrumental odour monitoring (aka e-noses). We had the pleasure of listening to what he has to say about e-noses in the Odour Talks.
The 3rd World Congress of Digital Olfaction Society was hosted by the Tokyo Institute of Tecnology in Japan the 7-8 December 2016. Distinguished researchers were invited to present and share their views about the digital olfaction in different applications.
The first part of the congress was dedicated to recent scientific advances and perspectives, and focused on the advances of human olfactory interfaces, including sensors, electronic noses and olfactory displays. The application of these devices in health and odor and environmental monitoring was discussed.
