The International Transport and Air Pollution Conference (TAP) has been held since 1986 in Graz (Austria), Zurich (Switzerland), Avignon, Reims, Toulouse and Lyon (France), Boulder (Colorado, USA) and Thessaloniki (Greece) and has turned into a key event of dialogue and networking in the areas of transport and air pollution, between scientists, researchers, transport users and decision makers.
After the successful event organized in Zurich in 2017, this 23rd TAP conference will take place in Thessaloniki, Greece. It is co-organized by the Labs of Applied Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer and Environmental Engineering of Aristotle University Thessaloniki and EMISIA SA with the support of the European Commission Joint Research Centre.
The main theme of the 23rd TAP Conference is “2020-2030: Transport in critical transition”. Indeed, this decade will determine whether transport systems will succeed in moving ahead with their sustainability targets. In this direction, specific areas include electromobility in the road sector, clean maritime shipping, fuels and energy decarbonization, air pollution / climate change trade-offs, low emission engines and vehicles, enhanced air quality modelling tools and their impacts on regulation and decision making.
