EUROPEAN AEROSOL CONFERENCE – EAC 2020

August 31 –  September 4, 2020 | Aachen Online – Hosted by GAeF Gesellschaft für Aersosolforschung e.V.

Our Sponsors and Exhibitors –  a vital contribution to EAC2020:

Abstract Submission closed

Abstract Submission has been closed on March 2. We thank everyone that has submitted their work for presentation at EAC 2020! The Program Committee, composed of experts from the relevant Working Groups, is currently reviewing all submitted abstracts thoroughly. Notifications of acceptance or rejection of the abstracts will be sent to the corresponding author (the submitter) by May 15.

Statement on Coronavirus and EAC 2020

We deeply regret to inform you that the measures imposed by the German authorities to counteract the corona virus pandemic unfortunately prevent an in-person EAC2020. We are therefore forced to cancel this year’s in-person EAC in Aachen. After consulting German authorities and the convention center Eurogress, we came to the conclusion, that a successful conference under the strict regulations would not be possible with a number of participants that ensures a true EAC experience. Thus, the desired exchange of scientists among each other and customer contact for our sponsors would not be possible. We, the local organizing committee, are currently working hard on an off-site solution that offers the excellent work of the submitting scientists and the reviewers as well as our sponsors a platform with the best possible visibility that can be achieved under these circumstances. Please be patient and give us some time to reach this goal. Scientific work continues. The authors just received the results of the reviewing process. We will publish the form in which the individual contributions can be presented to the scientific community later. It is heart breaking for the local organizers to send this message. For more than four years we had planned a fantastic EAC for you and we are desperately sad that we have to cancel the in-person convention with the checkered flag directly in sight now.

Off-site solution under development

We, the local organizing committee, are currently evaluating an off-site solution that offers the excellent work of the submitting scientists and the reviewers as well as our sponsors a platform with the best possible visibility that can be achieved under these circumstances.
At the Moment we can’t communicate a final conference fee to you until the final format of the off-site solution is fixed. But be assured it will be much less compared to the original fee. We will directly inform you after the evaluation is finished!

Join colleagues from all areas of aerosol science at EAC2020. Take the opportunity to challenge your brain, create new networks, and maintain existing relations. EAC2020 will feature five main themes corresponding to the EAA working groups, in addition to selected special topics

The EAC conferences are traditional meeting places and an exciting discussion forum for scientists from around the world working with basic aerosol research, development of aerosol techniques or applying one of its several techniques in a rich variety of scientific topics. The topics include technology, studies, measurement techniques, medicine (inhalation, exposure and health) and basic aerosol processes. EAC2020 presents an opportunity to learn more about the latest in theoretical, experimental and applied aspects of aerosol science. Discuss with people from all over the world, to share your work and to learn from others.
