Dear Colleagues:
AAAR invites you to participate in its 24th Annual Conference highlighting recent advances in aerosol science and engineering. The first day of the conference, Monday, October 17, will include 16 tutorials covering topics ranging from basic aerosol science to specialized cutting edge tools and techniques. Each following day will begin with a plenary lecture by a distinguished speaker discussing topics of current and emerging interest to aerosol scientists. This year, six specialty symposia will focus on the transport and transformation of atmospheric aerosols, the delivery and biological effects of inhaled particles, the use of space-based aerosol data, the emission of pollutants by aircraft, homeland security issues related to aerosols, and particulate matter pollution problems inside cars and other microenvironments. In addition to the above, the conference will be the forum for more than 700 presentations of exciting research in all aerosol-related areas.

The meeting will be held at the Hilton Austin in Texas. The hotel is located in downtown Austin, four blocks from the waterfront and next to the city’s entertainment district. Nearby attractions include the Capitol Building, the Texas Historical Museum, the Lyndon Johnson Presidential Library, and the Congress Avenue Bridge.

The most important aspect of every AAAR conference is your participation in the event. I look forward to seeing you in Austin!
