American Association for Aerosol Research (AAAR) 40th Annual Conference


3 October 2022 - 7 October 2022

The 40th AAAR Annual Conference is scheduled for October 3 to 7 in Raleigh, North Carolina. Visit the organizer’s website for key dates and deadlines.

An exciting array of Plenary Lectures, Special Symposia, Poster Sessions, Oral Platform Sessions, Tutorials, and Special Events will take place from Monday through Friday at 12:30pm.  Our Tutorial Chairs, Yue Zhang and Michael Schuit, have put together a list of 18 Tutorials on a wide range of aerosol science topics.  It is set to include some new topics as well as some of our old favorites.  Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday morning will all start with an 8am Plenary Lecture.  Our outstanding lineup of Speakers includes John Volckens, Sarah Henderson, and Jeff Siegel.  This year we will try something new for Friday by having our Plenary Lecture close the Conference.  This Plenary, which will be delivered by Susanne Hering, will be part of a group of activities the History of Aerosol Science Working Group is helping to coordinate to celebrate 40 years of AAAR.

The technical program will feature parallel Platform and Poster Sessions being seamlessly blended together by our 20 Working Group Chairs and Vice Chairs.  We will have 4 Special Symposia designed to bridge multiple areas and promote cross-disciplinary interaction on the following topics:

  1. Biomass Combustion: outdoor/indoor transport and indoor air quality
  2. Aerosol Physical Chemistry and Microphysics
  3. Aerosol Science of Infectious Diseases: What we’ve learned and still need to know about transmission, prevention, and the one health concept
  4. Aerosol sources and constituents of emerging importance and their impacts across spatial scales
