This is the 17th Annual Meeting in the successful series of International Conferences dealing with Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution.

The goal of this conference is to bring together researchers who are active in the study of air contaminants and to exchange information through the presentation and discussion of papers dealing with the wide variety of topics listed opposite. Case study papers are encouraged, as well as papers of a more theoretical nature, dealing with advanced mathematical and computational methods, will also be within the scope of the Conference.

Air Pollution is one of the most challenging problems facing the international community; it is widespread and growing in importance and has clear and known impacts on health and the environment. The human need for transport, manufactured goods and services brings with it impacts on the atmospheric environment at scales from the local to the global. The rate of development of the global economy brings new pressures and the willingness of governments to regulate air pollution is often balanced by concerns over the economic impact of such regulation. Science is the key to identifying the nature and scale of air pollution impacts and is essential in the formulation of policies for regulatory decision-making. Continuous improvements in our knowledge of the fundamental science of air pollution and its application are necessary if we are to predict properly, assess and mitigate the air pollution implications of changes to the interlinked local, regional, national and international economic systems.
