Workshop Overview

2nd Miami Workshop on Aerosol Science and Technology - Summer School in Winter


The Center for Aerosol Science and Technology (CAST) at the University of Miami is hosting its Second Annual Workshop on Aerosol Science and Technology in January 2024.The purpose of this 2.5-day workshop is to learn fundamentals of aerosol science and nanoparticle technology, and promote academic and industrial collaborative opportunities. Tutorial session and six invited keynote speakers will lead the technical sessions on:

  • Nanoparticle Technology: Synthesis, Characterization and Applications
  • Particle Instrument Hands-on Demonstration
  • Aerosols and Public Health
  • Aerosol and Dust Measurement
  • Tutorials on topics related to Aerosol Science and Technology

The technical sessions will be accompanied by poster sessions, exhibits, and lab tours. The Workshop is specifically advantageous to beginning researchers (graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, junior faculty) and participants from Industry.

CAST is a newly established research center at the University of Miami that has eight core and multiple affiliated faculty members from the College of Engineering, Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, and Miller School of Medicine. CAST focuses on the characterization of fundamental aerosol formation and transformation processes to determine impacts on the environment, climate, and human health and to utilize these processes to develop new materials to enable energy, environmental and medical technologies.

January 10 to January 12, 2024

Coral Gables Campus, University of Miami


  • Each technical session will be led by two or three 30-minute invited keynote speech, followed by three 15-minute technical presentations and 45-min discussion at the end of the session
