2nd International Conference on Air Pollution Modelling and Simulation APMS'2001

2nd  International Conference on Air Pollution Modelling and Simulation APMS'2001 
April   9-13, 2001, 


The aim of this meeting is to review the current understanding of  Air Pollution Modelling and Simulation and to bring  together people from various scientific communities (meteorology, atmospheric chemistry, modelling  of emissions, input data, numerical analysis and applied mathematics , ...) in order to confront their points of view.

Organized by

Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussees (ENPC) and 
Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique (INRIA)
