Summer School "Basic Aerosol Science 2022", Vienna

When?

The Summer School will take place between 10 and 16 July 2022 in Vienna/Austria at the Faculty of Physics (Boltzmanngasse 5, 1090 Vienna) as an in-person meeting.

Depending on the COVID-19 situation, changes may occur on short notice. We will inform about changes via this website and via email.

What?

The Summer School "Basic Aerosol Science" offers a broad education in basic principles and techniques of aerosol science. The main focus is on aerosol physics, but other fields such as aerosol chemistry and applications of aerosol science for e.g. issues of human health are also covered. The teachers of this Summer School are leading European experts in the field of aerosol science.

Who?

The Summer School is targeting international graduate students and early post‐doctoral researchers, as well as persons who work in the field of aerosol science.

Why?

The participants of this Summer School will acquire an excellent knowledge of the basics of aerosol science needed to understand and critically review aerosol processes and their interaction with the environment. They can immediately implement their knowledge in research projects of their institutions, act as decision makers in solving air pollution problems or contribute to regulatory processes and setting of standards.
