Dr. Célia Alves from Partner UAVR presented AIRUSE at the AIRMON 2014 Symposium.
The goals of the symposium are to provide a forum at which recent progress in exposure assessment strategies and analytical air sampling methodologies can be discussed. This year, the scope has been extended to further include aspects of biological monitoring and identification of biological markers of exposure and multi-exposure. The symposium is expected to provide an opportunity for an interchange of ideas among researchers, policy makers and practitioners in occupational health and environmental sciences. Regulatory issues will be addressed as well. After the symposium, the participants will have comprehensive knowledge of recent developments in this field.
The AIRMON 2014 programme will comprise four and a half days of invited plenary presentations lasting 30-60 minutes, free oral presentations (15-20 min), contributed poster presentations, and discussions. At the end of each oral presentation, 5 minutes will be reserved for discussions. Poster presentations will be given equal prominence and ample time will be allowed for discussion.
There will be no parallel sessions except for short courses.
The Organising Committee welcomes cutting-edge presentations focusing on:
. Air sampling and air monitoring
. Exposure assessment – strategies, peak exposures, multi-exposures
. Cumulative exposure and epidemiology
. Exposure modelling
. Active and passive sampling of organic and inorganic gases
. Sampling and measurement of aerosols and bioaerosols
. Sampling and measurements of mixed phases
. Nano-aerosol sampling and measurements
. Chemical speciation
. Quality of measurements, uncertainties
. Biological monitoring – biomarkers of exposure
