AQE SHOW 2018 - Investigation of Air Pollution Standing Conference (IAPSC) Conference Programme

For this winter 2018 conference, IAPSC will be teaming up with the Air Quality & Emissions Show (AQE), for a joint AQE and IAPSC event again.
The topics for this IAPSC conference are:

  • An update on sensor-based air quality monitoring techniques
  • Engaging the public - and particularly young people - with air quality
  • Green infrastructure and its potential role in LAQM: what is, and isn't, useful.

We have invited a range of interesting speakers on the above topics .

What will be the theme of the IAPSC Event?

The themes focus around: an update on sensor-based air quality monitoring techniques; the potential role of green infrastructure in LAQM; and the engagement of the public - and particularly young people, with air quality. As usual, we plan to feature a mix of speakers from Local Authorities and experts within the air quality community.
