Indoor Air 2018
Philadelphia, PA, USA
22 — 27 June 2018
The Indoor Air International Conference & Exhibition is a signature event of the International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ).
Since 1978, the triennial international indoor air conference series has brought together people representing a wide range of disciplines, all working to understand and solve problems and identify opportunities associated with indoor environmental quality and climate. Although researchers and practitioners from almost any background can make a contribution, it is the dynamic mixture of those contributions that will make the difference between success and failure in improving the indoor environment.
The 15th Indoor Air conference will be a multidisciplinary event involving participants from medicine, engineering, architecture and related fields. The conference will cover all aspects of Indoor Air Quality and Climate and the effects on human health, comfort and productivity.

Air Around Us: Science Technology and Health: CEE Spring Distinguished Lecture
Professor William W Nazaroff
Daniel Tellep Distinguished Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Tuesday, March 6, 2018
Banatao Auditorium, Sutardja Dai Hall, UC Berkeley
This lecture features three vignettes that illustrate recent advances in knowledge about the air we breathe. First, airplanes fly through areas where high ozone levels occur naturally; exposures in the cabin raise health concerns in part owing to the volatile byproducts of ozone’s reactions with skin oils. Second, in the well-controlled environment of neonatal intensive care units, resuspension and shedding from occupants are important sources of airborne particles. Consequently, we are studying clothing as a transport vector for airborne particles, which potentially includes infectious agents. Third, state-of-the-art scientific instruments allow us to study the dynamic behavior of volatile organic compounds in ordinary spaces, including classrooms and residences. The advanced analytical capability combined with deep domain knowledge is yielding surprising new insights about the composition of the air around us.
