2000 AAAR Special Initiatives Funded
In the initial year of the Special Initiative program, six special initiative proposals have been approved by the Board of Directors. We have information on progress regarding five of those projects.
The first project is a symposium on Respiratory Dose Estimation of Inhaled Particles: Advances in Experiment and Theoretical Model organized by Chong Kim and Bahman Asgharian. This symposium will be held at the AAAR 2000 conference in St. Louis, and will consist of four technical sessions scheduled for Wednesday, November 8, 2000. It will review the current state of particle dosimetry research and provide direction for future research.
The second project is a special symposium for AAAR 2000 entitled "Aerosols In Semiconductor Manufacturing" that has been organized by Sheryl Ehrman. The symposium will consist of several technical sessions with invited speakers, as well as a special program of tutorials intended for those working in the semiconductor industry. The tutorials will be held on Monday, November 6, 2000, and will include basic instruction in Aerosol Science, as the symposium topic. The technical sessions, Aerosols in Semiconductor Manufacturing I and II, are scheduled for Tuesday, November 7.
The third project is to produce a videotape on aerosols that can be used in high schools and colleges to promote the field of aerosol science as a career. Cliff Davidson and Kikuo Okuyama have been obtaining samples of videotapes to be edited for the final product - Wuled Lenggoro of Hiroshima University has also been working on this project. A sizable collection of footage has been obtained. The editing will begin after the St. Louis AAAR meeting.
Finally, two separate symposia are being planned for October 13 - 14, 2001, just prior to the AAAR 2001 conference in Portland, OR. They will be held at the Embassy Suites Hotel Portland Airport. The first symposium is The Second International Symposium on the History of Aerosol Science, which is organized by Gil Sem, Jim Gentry, and Dave Ensor. It will be a two-day symposium consisting of presentations as well as posters. An announcement brochure and call for papers is in progress and information will be posted on the AAAR web site in the near future. The other symposium is on Global Aerosol Climatology, and is being organized by Nels Laulainen. This will be a 1 ½ day program which will run parallel to the History of Aerosol Science Symposium.
