  • Air Pollution 2019

      [Conteúdo apenas disponível em Inglês] Introduction Air Pollution 2019 is the 27th Annual Meeting in the successful series of international conferences organised by the Wessex Institute dealing with Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution. The meetings in this series have discussed and considered many important air pollution issues and the international nature of the attendees has ensured that the conference findings and conclusions enjoy a wide and rapid dissemination amongst the air pollution science and policy communities. Air pollution issues remain one of the most challenging problems facing the international community. The series has demonstrated the wide-spread nature of the air pollution phenomena and has explored in depth their impacts on human health and the environment. 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. Increasingly, the conference has recognised that 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 papers 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. This important conference brings together contributions from scientists from around the world to present recent work on various aspects of air pollution phenomena. Notable in each of the conferences in this series has been the opportunity to foster scientific exchange between participants. Each meeting has provided a further opportunity for identifying new areas of air pollution science demanding collaborative investigation. These meetings have attracted outstanding contributions from leading researchers. The papers selected for presentation and included in the Conference Proceedings have been permanently stored in the WIT eLibrary (www.witpress.com/elibrary) from where they can be freely downloaded. These collected papers provide an invaluable record of the development of science and policy pertaining to air pollution. The series started in Mexico (1993) and continued in Barcelona (1994); Halkidiki (1995); Toulouse (1996); Bologna (1997); Genova (1998); San Francisco (1999); Cambridge, UK (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 Coruna (2012); Siena (2013); Split (2014); Valencia (2015); Crete (2016); Cadiz (2017) and Naples (2018). Conference Topics The following list covers some of the topics to be presented at Air Pollution 2019. Papers on other subjects related to the objectives of the conference are also welcome. Air pollution modelling Aerosols and particles Emission studies Health effects Indoor air pollution Air quality data Monitoring and measuring Air pollution control technologies Industrial air pollution Global, regional and local studies Climate change effects Emerging pollutants Air pollution management, policy and legislation Socio economic issues Public engagement Emerging technologies Case studies Additional information here.

  • Urban Transport 2019

    [Conteúdo apenas disponível em Inglês] Introduction The International Conference on Urban Transport and the Environment has successfully been reconvened for 25 years, always attracting a wide international spread of delegates. It is well-established as the premier event of its type. The continuing requirement for better urban transport systems and the need for a healthier environment has added to the increasing success of this annual meeting which attracts international delegates from many different countries. Innovative systems, new approaches and original ideas need to be thoroughly tested and critically evaluated before they can be implemented in practice, which highlights the importance of the meeting. Moreover, there is a growing need for integration with telecommunications systems and IT applications in order to improve safety, security and efficiency. The Meeting also addresses the need to solve important pollution problems associated with urban transport in order to achieve a healthier environment. The variety of topics covered by the conference reflects the complex interaction of the urban transport systems with their environment and the need to establish integrated strategies. The aim is to arrive at optimal socio-economic solutions while reducing the negative environmental impacts of current transportation systems. The conference started in Southampton in 1995; continuing in Barcelona (1996); Acquasparta, Italy (1997); Lisbon (1998); Rhodes (1999); Cambridge, UK (2000); Lemnos, Greece (2001); Seville (2002); Crete (2003); Dresden (2004); Algarve (2005); WIT Campus in the New Forest (2006); Coimbra (2007); Malta (2008); Bologna (2009); Limassol (2010); Pisa (2011), A Coruña (2012), Kos (2013), Algarve (2014), Valencia (2015), Crete (2016) and Rome (2017). All papers are included in the WIT Transactions and archived in the Wessex Institute’s eLibrary at www.witpress.com/elibrary, where they are permanently and easily available to the international community. Conference Topics The following list covers some of the topics to be presented at Urban Transport 2019. Papers on other subjects related to the objectives of the conference are also welcome. Urban transport planning and management Urban strategies Mobility and public space Smart city transport Urban impacts of public transport City logistics Public transport systems including public policies and governance Environmental impact Economic and social impact Safety and security Dangerous goods transport Travel behaviour studies Traffic control Traffic accidents Transportation modelling and simulation Infrastructure development Intelligent and advanced transport systems Mass transport strategies Freight transport Railway systems Port and city Innovative electric transportation Eco-mobility transport systems Integrated network systems including inter-modal transport systems Traditional and alternative fuels and energy Additional information here.

  • Conferência Anual da BOU - British Ornithologists’ Union

    Os recentes avanços nas tecnologias de seguimento animal vieram permitir uma quantificação dos movimentos migratórios ao longo do ciclo anual e de vida com um detalhe até agora impossível de conseguir, originando um interesse renovado nesta área de investigação. Assim, esta conferência pretende reunir ecólogos e biólogos que desenvolvem seguimento de aves migradoras com recurso a várias técnicas para explorar o estado actual do conhecimento da migração das aves: desde pulsos migradores de larga escala e variação individual em termos de fenologia e rotas; às consequências de flexibilidade comportamental para a distribuição e demografia destas espécies (níveis de conectividade); incluindo o desenvolvimento e manutenção de estratégias ao nível individual (ontogenia) e das populações (migração parcial e alterações transgeneracionais). Está conferencia irá decorrer na Universidade de Warwick no Reino Unido nos dias 26 a 28 de Março de 2018. Para mais informações ver a página da conferência.
