EAC 2013 - European Aerosol Conference

The 2013 European Aerosol Conference (EAC 2013) will be held in the historical city of Prague, Czech Republic, during the period of 1st-6th September 2013 under the auspices of the European Aerosol Assembly (EAA), a body that now represents 12 national or regional aerosol societies. In the past, the European Aerosol Conference was organized in Prague under the umbrella of the Gesellschaft für Aerosolforschung in 1999 when the Czech Aerosol Society was established. During the EAC 2013 the Czech Aerosol Society will celebrate its 14th anniversary and the 11th year of membership in the European Aerosol Assembly. It is a pleasure and honour for the Czech Aerosol Society to organize such important meeting of scientists from all over the World. The conference will be held under the auspices of the President of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic Prof. Jiří Drahoš and the Rector of the Charles University in Prague Prof. Václav Hampl.

The EAA and EAC

The European Aerosol Assembly is the organisation which has the responsibility to plan for the future hosting of European Aerosol Conferences, as well as to promote the development of the field of aerosol science through its working groups. It consists of 12 national or regional societies across Europe, though membership of these societies is not limited to European nationals, and operates under a formal constitution. The major activity of the EAA and its working groups takes place at the European Aerosol Conference, held in three out of every four years (the missing year being that in which the International Aerosol Conference, an event designed to foster links between research communities in all regions of the world, is held).
