Exposure in indoor and workplace micro-environments represents the main contribution to the aerosol-related health risk. Indeed, the time spent in such environments along with the possible proximity to the source, reduced ventilation of the buildings, and ineffective local exhaust ventilation may lead to high pollutant concentrations and, then, to high exposures and doses received by workers and occupants. Nonetheless, outdoor micro-environments still symbolize the hot-spots predominantly studied in research activities in terms of exposure to aerosols. Therefore, the main aim of the Workplace and Indoor Aerosols Conferences is to highlight the researches performed by the scientific community on indoor and workplace environments to not underrate the indoor aerosol exposure issues.
The 5th Workplace and Indoor Aerosols Conference represents a great opportunity for scientists involved in research activities focused on the emission characterization, exposure assessment, risk prediction, and health effect evaluation of aerosols in indoor and workplace environments. The conference will be structured according the method positively hailed in the previous meetings:
plenary presentations given by keynote speakers complemented by panel discussions with assigned moderators,
poster presentation of submitted abstracts,
exhibition by industrial partners.
Researches are welcomed to join the conference and present their researches covering the following topics:
Characterization of aerosols and bioaerosols in indoor air:
experimental analysis for exposure characterization
computational modeling of indoor aerosol dynamics
standards and guidelines
Technical mitigation strategies
Aerosol & health effects
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
On the basis of the success of the previous four meetings, the Workplace and Indoor Aerosols Conference can be definitely considered an exceptional chance for experts to share and discuss results coming from their different research areas. Medical specialists, engineers, instrument developers, metrologists, and air quality experts will exchange their specific know-how in order transfer knowledge, interact with stakeholders and provide scientifically-based responses to policy maker in facing indoor related negative outcomes.
