CALL FOR PAPERS

International Conference of Air Quality & Climate Change and 3rd Malaysia Air Quality Annual Symposium (1st AQCC and 3rd MAQAS 2021) 17 and 18 November 2021, Virtual.

Website, Registration & Submission: https://submit.confbay.com/conf/aqccmaqas2021

Welcome to the 1st AQCC and 3rd MAQAS 2021!

This year, the AQCC and 3rd MAQAS 2021 will be organized by The Clean Air Forum Society of Malaysia (MyCAS).

The conference will be conducted virtually on 17 & 18 November 2021.

Over the past several decades, global air pollution has become more serious, particularly in urban areas due to rapid urbanization and industrialization. Air pollution has been linked to higher rates of cancer, heart disease, stroke, and respiratory diseases such as asthma.

Hence, it is vital to tackle the air quality issues. Thus, the conference emphasizes interdisciplinary research along with practices and fosters exchanges among scientists, practitioners, professionals, and young researchers who are concerned with the above aspects.

This conference covers a wide range of fundamental, applied, and technology aspects of aerosol science and air quality that are focusing on monitoring and control strategies, health impact, policy and management, big data and air pollution modeling using earth observation data, atmospheric transport, and emissions from the combustion process.

1st AQCC and 3rd MAQAS 2021 serves as a platform which provides opportunities to establish the networking among scientist, practitioners, professionals and young researchers.

In addition to enhancing the dissemination of research findings and innovative practices, we are pleased to invite you to submit papers and participate through presentations and published proceedings/journals.

Ganu Eco-Charity 2021

Ganu Eco-Charity is a charity program organized by The Clean Air Forum Society of Malaysia (MyCAS) under The Hasanah Special Grant 2020 from Yayasan Hasanah, Khazanah Nasional. This is also a partnership program with Universiti Malaysia Terengganu, Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat Terengganu, a number of local government agencies as well as various NGOs.

The program began in Dec 2020 (Besut) until August 2021 (Pulau Redang) with a total distribution of 1,500 food baskets and hygiene kits garnering a value of RM210,000 in total. These charity gifts were successfully distributed to the most affected B40 communities in the current Covid-19 pandemic within Kuala Nerus, Dungun, Besut and Hulu Terengganu District. This program extended to around 9 months due to the ongoing pandemic and huge coverage area which involved coordination of 23 Subject Matter Experts and 100 volunteers from various institutions and organizations. Media representatives from RTM, BERNAMA, Sinar Harian, UTUSAN and Unit Penerangan Darul Iman (UPDI) had been with us in several occasions.

Through this program, MyCAS, Yayasan Hasanah and all the organizations involved hopes to have at least delivered a smile to the people with every package they received. To an extent, we wish our aids were delivered on time to the needy and was able to shine a light of hope to the affected people in these trying times.

Workshop on Health Risk and Impact Assessment Registration

Health risk assessment (HRA) is a systematic scientific assessment tool for assessing potential adverse health risks resulting from human exposures to hazardous agents or situations in the environment This training course will introduce participants to the aims and methodology of both qualitative and quantitative HRA, its applications in research, environmental standard and guideline setting, and environmental impact assessment. Participants will get hands-on experience of using a USEPA-based HRA methodology to compute the carcinogenic and-non carcinogenic health risks from human exposures to toxic chemicals throu9h various exposure routes. Participants will be trained by experienced environmental health consultants who have conducted numerous research and consultancy assignments in HRA and HIA, both locally and internationally. Overall, the trainin9 course enhances the transparency and understanding of nsk assessment and its use in research and management tool. Certificate will be provided to the workshop participants.

LCLUC NASA Meeting & Training

Land Use/Cover Changes, Environment and Emissions in South/Southeast Asia – An International Regional Science Meeting

Meeting Focus: 

Several countries in South and Southeast Asia are undergoing rapid changes due to urbanization and industrial development. The population growth together with rapid economic development is causing immense pressure to convert land from forest to agriculture and from agricultural areas to residential and urban uses with significant impact on ecosystem services. Increased Land Cover/Land Use Change (LCLUC) in the region is disrupting and perturbing atmosphere, forest resources, biodiversity, regional climate, biogeochemical cycles, water resources, and other ecosystem services. The aim of this meeting is to review the availability, potential, and limitations of different data sources and methodologies for the monitoring and the study of LCLUC, and quantification and its impact on the environment. The meeting presentations will focus on synergies among various approaches and provide recommendations on how to improve the use of earth observations, ground data and modeling techniques for the improved understanding of land use sources and sinks.

The purpose of this international meeting is to provide a forum to discuss LCLUC and its impacts, with a regional focus on South and Southeast Asian countries. The meeting will be organized around the following themes:

  • LCLUC and impacts on the atmosphere;
  • Agriculture and water resources,
  • Biomass burning, including land-atmosphere interactions
  • Urbanization
  • Land use in forests and mountain regions
  • Land use in the coastal zone
