We are pleased to announce that the Community Modeling and Analysis System (CMAS) conference is coming to the Asia-Pacific this year. The 1st CMAS-Asia-Pacific conference will be held on May 21-23, 2018 in Beijing, China, joint with the 6th Air Benefit and Cost and Attainment Assessment (ABaCAS) Conference. The joint conference is hosted by Tsinghua University and State Key Laboratory of Environment Simulation and Pollution Control, and organized jointly by South China University of Technology, Zhejiang University, University of North Carolina, and University of Tennessee with the support from China Ministry of Environment, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and Energy Foundation (U.S.). The joint conference aims at providing a high-level platform for air quality scientists, model developers and policy makers from various disciplines to exchange ideas and views on key issues related to atmospheric model development and applications to address environment and climate issues from local to global scales, especially in some Asia-Pacific countries where the air pollution is still a severe problem.  

In addition to the two-day conference (May 22-23), a one-day training workshop (May 21) on the "Community Multiscale Air Quality Modeling System (CMAQ)" and "Air Benefit and Cost and Attainment Assessment System (ABaCAS)" will also be provided to air quality modelers, managers and scientists of interest with demo and hands-on sessions on cutting-edge air quality decision support and modeling assessment tools. 

我们很荣幸地宣布2018空气污染控制成本效益与达标评估及亚太地区多尺度空气质量模型系统联合国际会议(2018 joint international conference on ABaCAS and CMAS-Asia-Pacific)将于2018年5月21-23日在北京举办。此次联合会议在中国环保部、美国环境保护署和美国能源基金会的支持下,由清华大学、华南理工大学、浙江大学、北卡罗莱纳大学、田纳西大学联合主办,清华大学环境学院和环境模拟与污染控制国家重点联合实验室承办。此次联合会议旨在为不同领域、不同学科的专家学者和决策者提供一个高水平学术交流平台,便于参会者们讨论关于大气模型在解决从区域到全球的环境和气候问题的研发和应用过程中遇到的关键问题。尤其是在亚太地区的一些国家的空气污染问题比较严重。
