Umeň is a city located in northern Sweden at the edge of the Arctic Circle on the Baltic Sea.

The local organizing committee cordially invites you to PIC2015 ľ the 14th International Congress on Combustion By-Products and Their Health Effects! This year the PIC congress is hosted in the beautiful city of Umeň, Sweden. The conference takes place between Sunday the 14th and Wednesday the 17th of June at the Scandic Plaza Hotel in the city center of Umeň.

The congress is held every two years with the goal to provide an international forum to discuss topics on the origins, fate, and health effects of combustion. Combustion is in this context defined in a wide sense, including all forms of thermal treatment of fuel materials and hazardous substances. This field has gained significant relevance due to the increasing need for mechanistic, diagnostic, and analytical answers to complex problems concerning air toxic exposure. The main theme of PIC 2015 is Origin, fate and health effects of combustion-related air pollutants in the coming era of bio-based energy sources.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Umeň!
