www.indoorair2016.org

The Indoor Air conference series is the flagship conference of ISIAQ, a broad and multidisciplinary society for anyone dealing with indoor air related research. The conference reflects the width of the society, with a scientific program that is as diverse as its members, bringing them together. Indoor Air 2016’s technical program covers all research related to indoor air quality and climate: from health effects and epidemiology to source and airflow fundamentals over every possible effect that modifies both and the exposure in between.

Technical program:

Posters provide much richer opportunities to engage directly with the audience. Therefore, the technical program will be primarily poster presentation based. Each poster will have a short oral presentation. Oral sessions will preferentially be allocated to sessions that are interaction oriented such as curated symposia and workshops.

Venue:

The conference will be held in the ‘University Forum’ and the ‘Plateau Building’, situated in the heart of Ghent University’ downtown campus. Both buildings are located on the same street, approximately 100m away from each other. Both buildings are fully covered by wifi. The campus is served by 3 bus stops (one in front of the buildings) and 1 tram stop, all on a direct line to the central train station and located within 5-10 minute walking distance from all the tourist highlights of the downtown area.

The ‘University Forum’ (‘UFO’), a modern structure by local star architects Stephane Beel and Xaveer De Geyter, finished in 2009, including one large auditorium and a foyer that will host the plenaries and the poster sessions. It includes a stepped seating area and the foyer opens on a sunny urban square. A central, easily accessible information desk located in the foyer will facilitate conference registration and quick addressing of any questions from conference delegates. The site has direct access to one of the many picturesque waterways of downtown Ghent.

The ‘Plateau’ building, dating from 1883, is one of the oldest buildings built by the university. From it’s inception to date, the beaux arts style building has housed the teaching rooms of the Faculty of Engineering. With an ongoing thorough renovation scheduled to finish by mid 2015, its façade will be restored to its original splendor in time for the conference. Its first floor includes 10 lecture halls conveniently located along a single hallway for the oral sessions.
