Although Monsoon Asia is one of the current “frontiers” for atmospheric chemistry, the region is not well connected to the international science community. Corresponding to emerging environmental issues including severe air pollution, the atmospheric chemistry community in Monsoon Asia is rapidly growing at both national and international levels, and policymakers need scientific evidence and support. However, there is large asymmetry between countries.

The Royal Society of Chemistry sponsored International Symposium on Gas Kinetics and Related Phenomena will return to France in 2018, with the 25th meeting taking place from the 22 - 26 July at the Plenary Hall of the Hauts de France Government, in the historic city of Lille.
