The Aerosol Society aims to support the study and science of airborne particles.
Our members are drawn from both industry and academia covering a wide range of disciplines from environmental health and climatology to pharmaceutical devices and nanotechnology.
By joining the Aerosol Society you will have the opportunity to meet thought-leaders in this exciting area of science and have access to a network of people with interests in every aspect of aerosol science.
The Annual General Meeting of the Aerosol Society was held on 4th April 2012. To view the Minutes of this meeting please click here.
Faraday Discussion 165: Tropospheric Aerosol - Formation, Transformation, Fate and Impacts
Monday, 22nd July – Wednesday, 24th July 2013, University of Leeds
Reducing uncertainties in the role of suspended particulate material in the atmosphere is critical for addressing a number of problems of major current concern.
There are a number of emerging frameworks aiming to integrate our theoretical or empirical understanding of the atmospheric aerosol, able to capture behaviour of physico-chemical aspects to various degrees and for a variety of applications at a range of complexity.
Why choose to come to a Faraday Discussion? They have a unique format – all papers are circulated in advance and all discussion contributions are recorded for publication in the abstract book after the event.
Call for posters submission deadline is 24th May 2013
For more information regarding the Faraday Discussion 165 please see the website.
Why not extend your visit to Leeds and contribute to this short conference on Atmospheric Aerosols
FOCUS MEETING 1 – ATMOSPHERIC AEROSOLS
Wednesday, 24th July (PM) – Thursday, 25th July (AM) 2013, University of Leeds
The Aerosol Society will host a focus meeting on atmospheric aerosol immediately after the Faraday Discussion from 24-25 July. There will be invited speakers and opportunities for contributed talks.
Bioaerosols and the Built Environment Conference
Wednesday, 26th & Thursday, 27th June 2013, University of Leeds
Bioaerosols are ubiquitous in the environment we inhabit and the majority pose no risk to human health. However there are a number of pathogenic microorganisms that can be transmitted via the air; evidence shows this may be helped or hindered by the design of buildings and civil infrastructure. This conference aims to bring together expertise in aerobiology, engineering and health to explorecurrent challenges in transmission and control of airborne pathogens linked to buildings and civil infrastructure.
The conference is aimed at both researchers and practitioners with interests in outdoor bioaerosols(such as allergens, bioaerosols at waste treatment plants and legionella) and those focused on indoor air (such as influenza and hospital acquired infection).
Registration for the Conference will be open shortly.
Abstract Deadline Wednesday 27th March 2013.
Full details including further ‘Key Dates’ can be found on the designated Conference webpage here.
Summer School 2013 "Basic Aerosol Science“
University of Vienna, July 3 to 10, 2013 - Aerosol Physics &Environmental Physics University of Vienna
This year there will be again a summer school "Basic aerosol science" in Vienna from July 3 to 10, 2013.
This summer school gives an introduction to all relevant fields of aerosol science. Besides lectures there will be assignments, discussions, and a field experiment. The instructors are European leading experts in the field.

Drug Delivery to the Lung - DDL24 Conference
Wednesday 11th – Friday 13th December 2013, Edinburgh International Conference Centre
Submissions for podium and poster presentations are invited.
Areas of particular interest for DDL24 include:
• Aerosol nano-medicines: friend or foe?
• Use of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics in developing inhaled products
• Electrostatics – of academic interest only or does it have a practical role?
• Formulation approaches for new inhaled therapies (lung cancer, gene therapy, vaccines and antibiotics)
• Advances in analytical and formulation science for respiratory products, with a focus on the metered dose inhaler
For more Conference information including Sponsorship and Exhibition details please go to the DDL24 website
“Dissolution of inhaled Products – In vitro developments, in vivo relevance and the potential impact on regulatory thinking”
Wednesday 11th December 2013 - AM, Edinburgh International Conference Centre
Registration - £95
DDL is pleased to announce that the Joint Pharmaceutical Analysts Group (JPAG) will sponsor a half day symposium.
A series of presentations will be made by leading researchers in this field followed by a panel discussion.
Focus Meeting Sponsorship Opportunities
As you know we do hold several events/conferences throughout the year, including the Annual Aerosol Science Conference, as well as sponsoring other one-day meetings by invitation.
One of the aims of the Society is to support the study and science of airborne particles, and to promote this by means of meetings and publications. With this in mind The Aerosol Society would like to take this opportunity to introduce its new Application for Focus Meetings.
The Aerosol Society intends that Focus Meetings (FMs) should concentrate on specific topics that have a recognisable aerosol science flavour and emphasis. FMs are distinct from other meetings that the Society agrees to co-sponsor through cooperation with other academic and professional organisations. There is also opportunity for the Society to host and organise the meeting on your behalf.

12 Early Stage Researcher (PhD) and 2 Post Doc positions in HEXACOMM - ITN Marie Curie Project
Applications are invited for 12 Early Stage Researcher (PhD) and 2 Post Doc positions in HEXACOMM, an EU-funded Marie Curie Initial Training Network with opportunities in 8 European countries (Greece, Denmark, UK, Spain, Czech Republic, Norway, Finland, Cyprus).
The main research goal of HEXACOMM is to apply scientifically –based modelling and experimental methods to relate concentrations of particulate matter in the indoor domestic environment to its sources and human exposure implications.
For this purpose the PhD and Post Doc projects will focus on targeted indoor air quality measurements, source apportionment studies, micro-environmental modelling, dosimetry modelling and exposure studies.
• research and training in an exciting European network;
• a highly competitive gross monthly allowance ranging from € 2700 to € 6000,
depending on host country and family status;
• secondments to our partners;
• and excellent career-development opportunities.
