IGAC has a strong focus on engaging the next generation of atmospheric scientists through its early career program.  These scientists join an international network early in their career that creates relationships that facilitate atmospheric chemistry research at an international level for years to come.

IGAC cultivates the next generation of scientists by:

Jim Crawford received his B.S. in Mathematics from the United States Military Academy in 1986 and his Ph.D. in Atmospheric Chemistry from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1997. Since that time, he has been a research scientist at NASA’s Langley Research Center. From the start of his graduate studies in 1991 and throughout his career, his research has been associated with airborne field studies conducted across the globe by NASA’s Tropospheric Chemistry Program and collaborating partners.

Hiroshi Tanimoto is the Head of Global Atmospheric Chemistry Section at National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) in Tsukuba, Japan. He received his PhD in Chemistry from The University of Tokyo in 2001 and was a visiting scholar at Harvard University during 2007–2008. Dr. Tanimoto has been working in the field of atmospheric composition in Asia and Oceania regions.

Mark Lawrence is a scientific director of the cluster “Sustainable Interactions With the Atmosphere” (SIWA) at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS, www.iass-potsdam.de) in Potsdam, Germany.

The event will be covered by various topics that will allow the participants to explore the diversity involved in understanding air quality and pollution in Africa. These topics include but are not limited to the following:

Please join us for the Early Career short course, a three day program for atmospheric chemistry learning and networking.

We hope that the difficult times of the pandemic will be well behind us in September of 2022. In any case, we are well prepared to host both virtually and live the 11th International Aerosol Conference (IAC 2022) to be held September 4th-9th, 2022. Athens is waiting for you! 
On behalf of the conference organizing Committee, my Co-Chairs, Dr. K. Eleftheriadis president of HAAR and the local organizing committee have prepared a fabulous program which will be announced soon. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Athens.
Nikolaos Mihalopoulos, Chair of IAC2022

Following successful #EnvChem events held online in 2020 and 2021, we hereby announce our plans for #EnvChem2022, which will be held in York on Thursday 14th and Friday 15th July 2022 with a hybrid online component.

#EnvChem2022 provides a forum for early career and established researchers working in environmental chemistry and ecotoxicology to share their latest research findings.

The idea for CEDS follows on from a succession of workshops and discussions among a collection of research groups. The purpose of the conference is to bring together the growing UK EDS community, bridging the academic/government/industry interfaces, to share technological developments and current challenges, and catalyse further research and development.
