Environmental and Occupational Health Aspects Related to Nano- and Ultrafine Particulate Matter


The full programme of the conference is now available and can be downloaded from HERE .


Scientific Programme

The conference will comprise three and a half days of oral and poster contributions. Oral presentations (invited or submitted) will be 40 and 15 minutes duration. At the end of each oral presentation 5 minutes will be reserved for discussions. Poster presentations will be given equal prominence and ample time will be allowed for discussion.
Participants are cordially invited to submit contributions dealing with the conference topics. A one-page abstract must reach the Organising Committee by April 1, 2019.
Instructions for the preparation and submission of the abstract are described in the downloadable document .

Please submit your abstract by e-mail to by April 1, 2019.

Poster Format

The size of the poster board is 1000 x 1200 mm (W x H). It is important that your audience is able to view the material and make sense of it from a distance of 1.5 to 2 meters. "Less is better". Appropriate materials for mounting posters will be provided.


The working language of the conference is English.


All sessions will be held in the various auditoriums of Hotel Alexandra, N-6868 Loen, Norway, Tel: +47 57 87 50 00 , Fax: +47 57 87 50 5
