ROCKVILLE, MD – August 4, 2010. The Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) and the University of Texas at Austin (UT) have announced the execution of a Sponsorship Agreement for the Indoor Air 2011 Conference. Indoor Air is the triennial conference of the International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ). UT has been selected to organize Indoor Air 2011.

The Indoor Air conference provides a forum for experts from around the world to share their research findings. It is scheduled for June 5-10, 2011 in Austin, Texas. IAQA will hold a series of mid-year business meetings in conjunction with Indoor Air 2011, encourage participation by its members in the conference and promote the event to industry. IAQA members are eligible for a discount on conference registration fees.

“IAQA is enthusiastic to sponsor Indoor Air 2011 because it provides a unique forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas face-to-face,” said Carl Grimes, IAQA President. A significant portion of the program will be aimed at translating research results for practitioners as well as helping researchers identify emerging needs.

“I am very excited about the opportunity to bring together the world’s best research scientists, practitioners on the front lines of everyday indoor air quality battles, and policy makers who set agendas that affect both researchers and practitioners. At Indoor Air 2011 these communities will come together and engage in a number of ways that will provide participants with a collective and cohesive vision and direction for the future.” said Dr. Richard L. Corsi, Indoor Air 2011 Conference President.

“The two leading organizations in the field of indoor air quality (ISIAQ and IAQA) are working together on the planning for this exciting conference. For the first time in the IA series of conferences, there will be a practitioners’ program, which will enable researchers and practitioners to interact, discuss and plan future research in the field. As a member of both organizations, I am very enthusiastic about the joining of these two groups in an unprecedented conference,” said Donald M. Weekes, CIH, CSP, conference Technical Co-Chair for Practice.

Indoor Air 2011 will be a unique technical program that focuses on major challenges facing the indoor air community, including those beyond the traditional scope of indoor research. Sessions will explore indoor air quality and climate change; the long-term implications of green building design on indoor air quality; indoor air chemistry and health; connections between local and regional outdoor air quality and the indoor environment; and, emerging contaminants.

Persons interested in giving presentations at Indoor Air 2011 may submit abstracts until the deadline of October 8, 2010. For more information about Indoor Air 2011, visit http://lifelong.engr.utexas.edu/2011/
