We are very pleased to announce that CAIRPOL has been invited by the US Environmental Protection Agency to present its technology and its sensors during the third workshop entitled “Air Sensors 2013: Data Quality & Applications” which will take place on March 19 and 20th, 2013 at EPA’s Research Triangle Park Campus – 109 T.W. Alexander Drive – Durham, NC 27711 (USA). This event is incorporated within the framework of EPA’s Next Generation Air Monitoring Workshop Series.

Recent years have seen advances in the research and development of newer, more portable, and lower cost air pollution sensors for measuring air quality. These developments, along with the proliferation of social media, smartphones, and an online culture, provide new opportunities for citizens, communities, and governments to leverage these technologies and become more informed about the current state of the environment. Furthermore, citizens have a growing desire for technology that can provide a more real-time, localized, and personalized information stream, meeting both personal and community health needs.

Because the adoption of such technologies can have far reaching impact, an understanding of the quality of data needed and how it varies for different applications is quite important.  Sensor developers are seeking innovative, low-cost approaches to ascertain what their instruments are actually measuring and how to calibrate them on-the-fly. As these instruments are more widely used, questions abound as to how best to manage all of the data. Speakers will be asked to address topics relating to new technologies, data quality, big data, and recent applications of sensors.

All plenary sessions will be broadcast via webinar. If you want to attend and to register, please click here.
