On behalf of the AAAR’s 28th Annual Conference organizing team, I cordially invite you to join us in Minneapolis on October 26-30, 2009. The 28th Annual Conference promises to further develop the great tradition of this premier conference series in aerosol science and technology. This is the best outlet to present your latest findings to an intellectually engaged and professionally dedicated community. It also provides the best opportunity to learn the latest advances in all frontiers of aerosol science and technology. Here you can renew old acquaintances, meet new colleagues and network with the government, industry and academia.
The 28th Annual Conference will begin on Monday, October 26, 2009 with a full slate of 16 tutorials covering a wide range of introductory and advanced topics. Each of the following four days will begin with a plenary lecture from an esteemed scholar that addresses these key challenges and new directions: (a) Reactions at Interfaces in the Atmosphere: A New Dimension in Aerosol Research? (b) Aerosol Science and Technology Enabling a Potpourri of Energy Applications; (c) Respiratory Dose Assessment of Inhaled Particles: Continuing Progress; and (d) Particulate Emissions from Modern Diesel Engines. The technical program features parallel platform sessions and plenary poster sessions with numerous scheduled breaks for informal exchange. We also have six special symposia organized for focused topics: (i) Aerosol Drug Delivery; (ii) Atmospheric Aerosol Nucleation and Growth – Molecular Clusters to Nanoparticles to Climate; (iii) Biodefense; (iv) Fundamentals and Applications of Electrospray; (v) Nanomaterials for Energy Applications; and (vi) Recent Advances in Biomass Burning Emission Measurement and Modeling.
The exhibit area, open Monday evening through Thursday, provides opportunities to learn from and interact with leading companies offering instrumentation and services in aerosol science and technology. As Minneapolis is one of the best places with a high concentration of R&D in aerosol science and technology, we have arranged technical tours to Donaldson, MSP, TSI and the University of Minnesota. Also, definitely get to know more about the city which is rich in culture and history
The conference venue will be the Hyatt Regency in downtown Minneapolis along Nicollet Mall. There are many restaurants, museums, and shopping options within walking distance, and public transportation in the area is convenient. Minneapolis, the hub of a major US airline, has direct flights to numerous US cities and around the world. The average weather in late October will be 50°F during the day.
This will be an outstanding conference at a great location that you certainly don’t want to miss. We look forward to meeting you in Minneapolis in October at the 28th Annual Conference of the American Association for Aerosol Research!
