2018 Joint International Conference on ABaCAS and CMAS-Asia-Pacific, Beijing, China
May 21, 2018 @ 8:00 am - May 23, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
The first annual CMAS-Asia-Pacific conference will be held on May 21-23, 2018 in Beijing, China, joint with the 6th Air Benefit and Cost and Attainment Assessment (ABaCAS) Conference. The joint conference is hosted by Tsinghua University and State Key Laboratory of Environment Simulation and Pollution Control, and organized jointly by South China University of Technology, Zhejiang University, University of North Carolina, and University of Tennessee with the support from China Ministry of Environment, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and Energy Foundation (U.S.). The joint conference aims at providing a high-level platform for air quality scientists, model developers and policy makers from various disciplines to exchange ideas and views on key issues related to atmospheric model development and applications to address environment and climate issues from local to global scales, especially in some Asia-Pacific countries where the air pollution is still a severe problem.
In addition to the two-day conference (May 22-23), a one-day training workshop (May 21) on the “Community Multiscale Air Quality Modeling System (CMAQ)” and “Air Benefit and Cost and Attainment Assessment System (ABaCAS)” will also be provided to air quality modelers, managers and scientists of interest with demo and hands-on sessions on cutting-edge air quality decision support and modeling assessment tools.
