Invitation:

27th ETH Nanoparticles Conference (NPC-24)

June 10-14, 2024
ETH Zurich, Switzerland – on-site

Including the Workplace and Indoor Aerosols Conference (Aerosols-24)


Conference Website and Registration: https://npc24.scg.ch


This years' Nanoparticles Conference (#ethnpc24) at the ETH Zürich is organized as a joined event together with the Workplace and Indoor Aerosols Conference (Aerosols-24). The NPC serves as an interdisciplinary platform for expert discussion on all aspects of nanoparticles, freshly emitted from various sources, transformed in ambient air, distributed on local and global scale, on technical mitigation aspects, particle legislation, and impact of particles on health, environment, and climate. The conference brings together representatives from research, industry and legislation.


Conference Topics

  • Aircraft, marine and other non-road sources
  • Ambient air particles, secondary pollutants
  • Biomass-, biofuel- and synfuel combustion
  • Brake and tyre wear, non-combustion emissions
  • Emission control of combustion engines
  • Environmental effects
  • Filtration of combustion and biogenic nanoparticles
  • Health effects
  • Impact on climate
  • Indoor particles and workplace aerosols
  • Legislation and enforcement
  • Nanoparticle formation and transformation
  • Nanoparticle metrology and chemical characterization
  • Nanoparticle chemistry and toxicology
  • Occupational exposure and prevention
  • Periodical technical inspection for in-use vehicles


Joined Conference on Nanoparticles and on Workplace and Indoor Aerosols

The COVID pandemic and the measures implemented to abate the release and transport of virus-containing aerosols have proven the importance of indoor exposure. We can announce that the NPC-24 will be organized together with the Workplace and Indoor Aerosols Conference (Aerosols-24). Accordingly, a focus of the joined conference will be on indoor particles and aerosols at workplaces. This part is co- organized together with the Aerosols Conference team and time is reserved on June 13 and 14, 2024.


Health Session

The session will provide new experimental and epidemiological results about health consequences of combustion emissions and nanoparticle exposure.


Papers and Posters

We invite you to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations for both events on the conference website, https://npc24.scg.ch/registration.

  • Abstracts must contain new information and results related to the aforementioned topics.
  • Best poster presentations will be awarded with prize money and certificates.
  • Presenters at the conference will be invited to submit full length papers for publication after peer-review, in the journal "Emission Control Science and Technology".
  • All contributions including PDFs of talks, posters, and abstracts will be published on the conference website.
    Submission of an abstract includes your agreement for publication on the conference website.
