27th Annual George Mason University Conference Abstract Deadline
Jun 6, 2023, 12:00 AM - 11:45 PM
Format of conference and request for abstracts
The 27th Annual George Mason University (GMU) Transport and Dispersion modeling conference will be held on June 20 to 22, 2023 in-person by George Mason University Fairfax Campus. Abstracts may be submitted by all interested persons.
Presentations will be given in the format of a typical conference, with 10 to 15 minutes available for each presentation and its discussions.
Our goal is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas on ongoing research.
Submittal of abstracts and request for copies of viewgraphs or slides
Abstracts should be submitted by e-mail before June 6, 2023 to Dr. Zafer Boybeyi and Dr. Joe Chang. The title and an abstract of less than 200 words should be submitted along with full names of all authors, e-mail addresses of all authors and mailing address and telephone number of the lead author. The abstract should be either in plain text or in Microsoft Word for Windows. There is no requirement for a written paper and electronic copies of their presentations.
NOTE THAT conference presentations will be posted for distribution to participants.
Technical topics of interest
The technical topics to be included cover a wide range under the general category of atmospheric transport and dispersion modeling. The major topic areas are listed below:
- New developments in basic theories of boundary layer models and transport and dispersion models
- Urban-scale meteorological and dispersion experiments and models
- CFD model theory and applications
- Field experiments and laboratory experiments concerned with boundary layer studies and turbulence and dispersion studies
- Mesoscale meteorological modeling for input to transport and dispersion models
- The use of remote sensing technology in boundary layer and transport and dispersion studies
- Model evaluation methods, uncertainty/sensitivity analyses and risk assessments
- Improvements in model inputs (e.g., land-use data, 3-D building data) and output visualizations.
- Methods and criteria for emergency response and decision-making
We also welcome ideas from groups interested in arranging special sessions.
