The fourth Annual Conference of the ACC-AQSM will be held in Perth, Western Australia from the 22 – 24 November 2018, and hosted by Curtin University. We are preparing an exciting program for the conference, with application of sensors and utilisation of big data they generate as one of the major foci, as well as some exciting study trips to the Defence Science and Technology (DST) air quality monitoring facility at the Garden Island Naval Base (Rockingham), and for marine air monitoring at Point Peron and Rottnest Island. Further information and the preliminary program is to come soon.

From the 20-23rd March 2018, a three day Sino-German Symposium on “Bridging Aerosol Chemistry and Health Effects: Challenges and Opportunities for Analytical Chemistry“, was held at Jinan University, in Guangzhou. The symposium was organised exceptionally well by the host Prof. Li Xue, from Jinan University and Prof. Ralf Zimmerman from the University of Rostock, Germany. In addition to scientists from Germany and China, there were invited presenters from USA, Finland, Sweden, Luxembourg and Australia. A number of ACC-AQSM members participated and presented, such as Professors: Zoran Ristovski (ILAQH, QUT), Chak Chan (City University of HK), Hai Guo (HK PolyU), Hai-Dong Kan (FDU), and Maosheng Yao (PKU). This was an excellent opportunity for air-pollution scientists from China and Germany to get together, present their latest findings and exchange ideas. Current status of international research on aerosol chemistry and environmental health was discussed. A total of 54 experts presented their findings on aerosol chemistry and health effects. A group photo of the participants is shown below. For more information, please visit the Symposium website.
