2012 Annual International Emission Inventory Conference

2012 Annual International Emission Inventory Conference
“Emission Inventories – Meeting the Challenges Posed by Emerging Global, National, Regional and
 Local Air Quality Issues”

13-16 August 2012, Tampa Florida, USA

The U.S. EPA’s 2012 Annual International Emission Inventory Conference will be held in Tampa Florida, August 13 through 16, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. We invite you to submit a short abstract proposing a topic you would like to present during the conference.

This year’s conference focuses on how emission inventories meet the challenges posed by emerging global, national, regional and local air quality issues. This theme highlights issues such as:

  • How inventories can be used to assess the impacts of long-range transport on local NAAQS and other air quality issues;

  • How inventories need to be adapted to support emerging climate issues (including multi-pollutant strategies for air quality vs climate benefits issues);

  • How the NEI and other emission inventory collection efforts can benefit by looking to special studies and other active on-going research in the areas of focus for this conference;

  • Which sectors in the inventory are the most difficult to characterize in a given area facing air quality and climate issues? How can the emissions in these sectors be improved?

Our conference will provide a useful forum for the exchange of ideas and information on the development and uses of emissions data. Participating organizations are expected to include state, local, tribal, regional, international agencies, industry and academia.

Invitation to Submit Abstracts for Papers and Presentation

You are invited to submit a short abstract on a relevant topic that you would like to present by podium (orally) or by poster (visual display), or both. Authors will be notified upon selection of abstracts. A paper submission will be required for podium presentations. Podium presentations are a maximum of 25 minutes in length, including questions and answers.
