About Event 


The World Health Organization reports that “the combined effects of ambient (outdoor) and household air pollution cause an estimated seven million premature deaths every year, largely as a result of increased mortality from stroke, heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer and acute respiratory infections.” This workshop is the second in a series that was initiated in 2019 by University of Michigan and Cambridge University. It will include presentations from experts who represent regulatory agencies, sensor manufacturing companies, and academia. The technical topics will cover emerging technologies, data analytics, and applications pertaining to volatile organic chemicals and particulate matter. A panel discussion will follow the format presentations.


The workshop will be held virtually, via Zoom, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM EST, July 28-29, 2021.
