Thank you to everyone who has already registered – be sure to pay your registration fee if you haven’t done so already.

TSI is looking forward to meeting you at EAC 2021

TSI products contribute to all aspects of aerosol and particle science. Whether it is counting, sizing, generating, sampling or mass measurements, we are happy to help. TSI solutions generate critical data for environmental studies, aerosol and nanoparticle research, fluid mechanics research, multiphase flow measurement, spray diagnostics, combustion research, and more.

We warmly invite you to meet us at our virtual booth.

PRE-LAUNCH WEBINAR
Exclusively for EAC participants

Introducing a Comprehensive Ultrafine Particle Monitoring Solution

Ambient air monitoring of ultrafine particles is a complex task. The introduction of CEN/TS 16976/17434 is an important step to harmonize these measurements. We are excited to launch our fully CEN-compliant solution that covers everything from sampling of ultrafine particles, over measurement of number concentration and number size distribution to data processing and handling.
Join us on Monday, August 30, 4:30-5:15 PM.

In this year’s Young Investigator Network (YIN) event we would like to put the spotlight on work life balance in academia. The event will start on Tuesday, 31st August, 17:00 BST with an introductory talk by Desiree Dickerson, PhD and continue with small round table discussions and time to network and connect with fellow young scientists (18:00 BST – open end). The event is aimed at early career scientists and doctoral students and the participation is included in the registration fee for the EAC2021 thanks to generous support from TSI. — The GAeF YIN Organisation Team. More details can be found in the programme.

FAQs

Poster Presentations

Where can I find information on how to upload my poster?

Check out detailed instructions available on the EAC website. You can find additional tips on the Hopin website.
Do I have to use Google slides or YouTube to present?

During your live poster session, you will be able to share your screen with attendees at your booth and can therefore use any format you would like! Google slides and YouTube links can be uploaded to your booth if you would like attendees to be able to see information about your research outside of the scheduled poster session.
When will I receive a link to set up my poster booth?

Links to set up poster booths have been sent so if you haven’t received one yet, check your spam inbox or email us at .
Can I preview my booth?

Unfortunately we do not have the capacity to arrange preview for all poster presenters. However, you can check out your booth at the start of the conference on Monday. We will also have technical staff on hand in the virtual expo centre to address any last minute issues.

Oral Presentations

Where can I find information on how to present a talk at the conference?

Information on how to present in oral sessions can be found on the EAC2021 website.When will I receive a link?

All session chairs and oral presenters can expect a magic link at the end of this week (along with all other registrants). You can set up some profile information ahead of time, but the event will not go live until Monday, 30 Aug at 7:00 BST. There are no special links sent out to chairs and oral presenters – instead, technical assistants in sessions will moderate to grant permissions to share screens and video as and when needed.

Session Chairs

I’m a session chair – do I need any special training in Hopin?

Don’t worry! Technical assistants will be handling all the technical aspects of moderating oral sessions. They will help you share your video when required, we just ask that you moderate questions that come in for the speakers via the Q & A dialogue box during live sessions.

Thank you to our gold and silver sponsors!

Keep an eye on eye health: While there are many benefits to virtual conferences, we are aware that eye fatigue can affect people looking at computer screens for extended periods of time. We recommend that you take advantage of the frequent breaks built into the programme to rest your eyes or perform simple eye exercises like massaging your eyes, focusing on objects in the distance, and regular blinking to keep your eyes healthy.
