The 24th International Conference on Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution builds upon the prestigious outcomes of the 23 preceding meetings. The series started in Mexico (1993) followed by Barcelona (1994); Halkidiki (1995); Toulouse (1996); Bologna (1997); Genova (1998); San Francisco (1999); Cambridge (2000); Ancona (2001); Segovia (2002); Catania (2003); Rhodes (2004); Cordoba (2005); New Forest (2006); Algarve (2007); Skiathos (2008); Tallinn (2009); Kos (2010); Malta (2011); A Coruña (2012); Siena (2013); Split (2014) and Valencia (2015).

crete.jpgThe Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution series of conferences has attracted a global audience of academics and air pollution practitioners who through their papers and presentations have contributed to the evolving understanding of the science and policy contexts of air pollution. The conference continues to meet the demands of a discerning audience through the quality of the science and policy presented at the meetings. This series has discussed important air pollution issues at an international, national and local level and by virtue of its truly international composition has brought to the discussion a unique suite ofperspectives. The conference findings enjoy a wide and rapid dissemination amongst the air pollution science and policy communities.

The management of air pollution is one of the most challenging problems facing the international community. The conference addresses a wide range of issues and challenges, but a particular strength of the series has been the attention given to regulatory and, market solutions to air pollution management. The Air Pollution series of conferences has consistently acknowledged that science remains the key to identifying the nature and scale of air pollution impacts and reaffirmed that science is essential in the formulation of policy relevant information for regulatory decision making. The conference series also acknowledged, at a very early stage, that science alone will not improve a polluted atmosphere. The scientific knowledge derived from well designed studies needs to be allied with further technical and economic studies in order to ensure cost effective and efficient mitigation. In turn, the science, technology and economic outcomes are necessary but not sufficient.

The outcome of such research needs to be contextualised within well formulated communication strategies that help policy makers and citizens to understand and appreciate the risks and rewards arising from air pollution management. Consequently, the series has enjoyed a wide range of high quality presentations that develop the fundamental science of air pollution and an equally impressive range of presentations that places these new developments within the frame of mitigation and management of air pollution. 

All the peer reviewed papers published in the series are available in the WIT eLibrary (www.witpress.com/elibrary) where they are easily accessible to the international community.
