14th - 18th September 2020
POSTPONED TO 2022
IGAC has always been an inclusive scientific community with an emphasis on collaborations within the international community. We believe that the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19’s containment and ongoing international travel restrictions would make an in-person conference less inclusive than a virtual conference.
After careful consideration, the IGAC Scientific Steering Committee has made the decision to shift the IGAC 2020/2021 conference to a fully virtual conference. We are excited to explore the possibilities of a virtual conference and hope to foster the networking and connections that the IGAC community is known for by leveraging the accessibility of virtual platforms. Our hope is to specifically support early career researcher development and networking during this conference.
Look for future announcements in the next few months on the virtual conference dates, format, abstract submission, and the early career researcher short course. We anticipate allowing previously submitted abstracts and early career short course applications to remain valid or be edited/withdrawn by the submitter.
We look forward to meeting you all in a virtual world in 2021! We plan to host a joint iCACGP-IGAC conference in person in Manchester in 2022, and will be soliciting bids for the 2024 conference soon.

Welcome to the website of the 16th International IGAC Conference, which will take place from 14th to 18th September 2020 with registration available and an Icebreaker taking place on Sunday 13th September.
We are delighted to host the IGAC 2020 Science Conference in Manchester. IGAC is the leading global atmospheric chemistry conference. It is run biannually and attracts approximately 600 international scientists, industry leaders, and early career researchers from around the world and includes many leading funding agencies.
The Scientific Steering Committee has developed an exciting programme that spans air pollution to global change and links fundamental research to policy development, interfacing atmospheric science with wider biogeochemistry of the Earth System. The conference follows the strong tradition of previous IGAC conferences, not only highlighting cutting edge scientific research in atmospheric chemistry, but also fostering international collaborations, and highlighting scientists and their research from developing and emerging regions. As in previous years, the IGAC Science Conference encourages early career scientists and makes every effort to showcase their science. We have an exciting early career programme to develop the next generation of leaders in our field and also to foster their interaction within and across our community.
We are delighted to welcome you to Manchester, the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, and now a vibrant, multi-cultural modern city with easy access to some of the best countryside in the UK. The atmospheric chemistry community from across our region welcomes you to the UK.
We greatly looking forward to seeing you in Manchester in September.
