About Conference

Unprecedented growth of urban centers, industries and vehicles population have resulted in serious air quality problems. The World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated that in developing countries, increasing urban air pollution (UAP) has resulted in more than 2 million deaths per annum along with various cases of respiratory illnesses (WHO, 2014). One of the major sources of UAP is the road transport sector. Besides, domestic, commercial and industrial activities also contribute to UAP.
Air pollution in urban areas involves multiple processes: the generation of pollutants at and their release from a source; their transport and transformation and removal from the atmosphere; and their effects on human beings, visibility, materials, and ecosystems. The impacts of air pollutants on human health mainly influenced by toxic nature of pollutant, exposure time, exposure pathway etc. Therefore, need of the hour is to establish the scientific basis for assessment of the risk to human health and the environment from exposure to toxic air pollutants.
The first Indian International Conference on Air Quality Management (IICAQM 2016) was held in the year 2016 at IIT Madras, Chennai India.

The second Indian International Conference on Air Quality Management- Health and Exposure Assessment (IICAQM 2017) aims to bring together leading academicians, scientists, engineers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results related to all aspects of air pollution health and exposure assessment and its management.

The conference offers an excellent opportunity to exchange information amongst researchers working in academic institutions / R&D organizations, to present and publish research findings and interact with experts and partners from administration and industry.

We welcome paper submissions that present new ideas, techniques, new management systems and innovative applications that reflect the current breakthroughs in air quality management.
