The scientific programme of the conference will comprise a set of plenary talks followed by poster and oral parallel sessions. The aim is to create a set of clear themes, aligned with the areas of interest of the EAA working groups (listed on the main page), such that the programme resembles a set of parallel workshops for the various specialisms, but giving opportunities for attendees to gain from cross-fertilisation between the themes. This latter aspect is one of the key benefits that emerge from a meeting crossing such a broad set of related fields. The scope of the conference and the abstract classification scheme provide a flavour for the content of the conference.
Poster presentation will be given particular emphasis as a means for the dissemination of information to a broad audience in an informal setting.
Posters should be A0, in portrait orientation (841mm wide × 1189mm high).
The EAA working groups will offer a set of Poster Prizes to encourage and recognise excellence in poster presentation. Guidance on the criteria is provided through the link at bottom of this page.
Oral presentations will take place in six parallel sessions and wil be allotted 20 minutes each.
Failure to register by 20 July 2012 of at least one author for accepted abstracts will result in abstracts removed from the program and abstract book.
Due to the large number of contributions already received, those who already have an accepted poster or talk in EAC2012 will not be allowed to submit a late poster.
When sending your late poster abstract, please accompany it with the following information: name, email, address and affiliation for each author, as well as abstract category and subcategory.
Particular highlights of the conference include plenary talks given by the following distinguished speakers:
- Vicent Castranova: Characterization of Responses to Carbon Nanotubes and Carbon Nanofibers
- Gelsomina Pappalardo: ACTRIS Research Infrastructure for coordinated long-term observation of aerosols, cloud-aerosol interactions, and trace gases in Europe
- Ulrike Lohmann: Aerosols, clouds and climate
- Barbara Turpin: Secondary organic aerosol formation through aqueous chemistry: atmospheric evidence, chemistry, partitioning and prediction
- Helmuth Horvath:Phorophoresis – the forgotten force
In addition to regular sessions, a number of special topics are chosen for particular focus at the conference. The list of special sessions is given below:
- ACTRIS (Aerosols, Clouds, and Trace gases Research InfraStructure Network)
- A ground-based integrated study of chemical aerosol-cloud interaction (HCCT2010)
- Source apportionment
- Chemical characterization of combustion aerosols
- Field observations and modelling of special events (Fukushima accident and Eyjafjallajökull ash plume)
Best Poster Prizes
To recognize excellence in poster presentation, the EAA will award a number of Best Poster Prizes at the conference. The criteria for selection will be effective design, clarity of communication and scientific quality.
The Prize Committee will be chaired by Dr. Nonne Prisle.
