The 2019 conference, organized jointly by the International Society of Exposure Science (ISES) and the International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ), will present a unique forum for interdisciplinary scientific exchange. During this joint conference, the hope is to provide an understanding of the interactions between the factors affecting healthy living, focusing on air pollutant exposure in the built environment, and enriching the discussions between the members of both societies.
International Society of Exposure Science (ISES)
The International Society of Exposure Science (ISES) promotes and advances exposure science (methods, measurements, models) as it relates to the complex inter-relationships between human populations, communities, ecosystems, wildlife, and chemical, biological, and physical agents, and non-chemical stressors. ISES members have diverse expertise and training in biological, physical, environmental, and social sciences, as well as various engineering disciplines. According to the National Research Council, “exposure science links human and ecological behavior to environmental processes in such a way that the information generated can be used to mitigate or prevent future adverse exposures.” The Society’s multidisciplinary expertise and international reach make it the premiere professional society for practitioners associated with all aspects of exposure science (research, teaching, policy, communication, outreach).
International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ)
ISIAQ is an international, independent, multidisciplinary, scientific, non-profit organization whose purpose is to support the creation of healthy, comfortable and productive indoor environments. We strongly believe this is achievable by advancing the science and technology of indoor air quality and climate as it relates to indoor environmental design, construction, operation and maintenance, air quality measurement and health sciences. The society’s major role is to facilitate international and interdisciplinary communication and information exchange by publishing and fostering publication on indoor air quality and climate.
