23rd TAP Conference – 2020-2030: transport in critical transition

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.

Keynote Speakers

Dr. Allen L. Robinson

Raymond J. Lane Distinguished Professor and Head, Department of Mechanical Engineering
Dr. Allen L. Robinson is the Raymond J. Lane Distinguished Professor and Head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University.  His research examines the impact of emissions from energy systems on air quality and climate.  Focus areas include the atmospheric transformation of particulate matter emissions from motor vehicles and other combustion sources; methane emissions from the natural gas system; and high-spatial-resolution estimates of human exposure to support health analyses.  Dr. Robinson has authored more than 170 papers in peer-reviewed literature and given numerous invited talks and lectures.  He currently serves as the director of the EPA-supported Center for Air, Climate, and Energy Solutions (CACES), a multi-institution research center focused on creating a cleaner, healthier environment.  He is a member of the Health Effects Institute’s Research Committee.  Dr. Robinson is a fellow in American Association of Aerosol Research and received the American Geophysical Union ASCENT Award.  He holds a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Stanford University, and a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley.
