Call for abstracts:

Short abstracts (max. 350 words) should be submitted by e-mail to the conference mail address harmo16(at)harmo.org.

A Word template for short abstracts can be downloaded here: Word template.

Sessions will be organized within the following topics:

1. Model evaluation and quality assurance – model validation, model inter comparisons, model uncertainties and model sensitivities;
2. Environmental impact assessment: Air pollution management and decision support systems;
3. Use of modelling in support of EU air quality directives, including FAIRMODE;
4. Parameterization of physical processes in mesoscale meteorology relevant for air quality modeling;
5. Urban scale and street canyon modelling: Meteorology and air quality;
6. Use of modelling in health and exposure assessments;
7. Inverse dispersion modelling and source identification;
8. Modelling air dispersion and exposure to accidental releases;
9. Historical reviews and highlights of past work. Special session mainly devoted to prominent scientists and ‘golden papers’ of the past, which have still relevance and should not be forgotten.

The Steering and Scientific committees follow certain criteria when selecting papers. For oral presentation it is essential that the work fits well into the philosophy of improving the modelling culture, common use and understanding of tools among modelers, users and regulators.

Conference participants are invited to use the rich collection of data sets and other information from www.harmo.org.

An award for the best poster presentations by early stage researchers is foreseen. Eligible are scientists younger than 35 who are first authors on the poster and have notified the organizers that they want to participate.
