2006 International Aerosol Conference
St. Paul, Minnesota USA
Organized by
American Association for Aerosol Research (AAAR)

Dear Colleagues:

We invite you to participate in the 7th International Aerosol Conference in St. Paul, Minnesota’s capital city on the banks of the Mississippi River. This IAC will bring together much of the worldwide aerosol research community to share the results of recent research.

On Sunday, September 10, we will enjoy a choice of many tutorials taught by experts in the field. The conference begins in earnest on Monday, September 11, and continues through Friday, September 15 with a full schedule of oral and poster sessions covering a wide variety of aerosol topics.

Every morning begins with a plenary lecture on a current or emerging topic of aerosol
science. We anticipate over 1,150 high-quality papers on the latest aerosol science and technology. Participants may tour local areas of interest such as the Science Museum of Minnesota, the University of Minnesota’s Particle Technology Laboratory, TSI, Donaldson Company, MSP Corporation, 3M, and the Mall of America. Wednesday evening we will enjoy a conference dinner on a riverboat on the Mississippi.

The 2006 IAC will be preceded by a special symposium on the history of aerosol science, Friday and Saturday, September 8-9, 2006. (Pre-Conference History Symposium.ppt)The history symposium will have its own registration fee. This is the third in a series of symposia on aerosol history, the first in 1999 in Vienna and the second in Portland in 2001. A peer-reviewed proceedings book of the symposium contributions is planned.

A special event will mark the 25th Annual Conference of AAAR. The Fuchs Award will be presented to one or more individuals for their lifetime achievements in the field of aerosol science. The first Fissan-Pui-TSI Award will recognize excellence in intercontinental cooperation in the field of aerosol science and technology. The International Aerosol Fellow Award presentation will also be made.

Your participation at this important conference is crucial to its success. We look forward to seeing you in September!
