The microscopic particulate matter suspended in the air (i.e. the aerosol) influence earth and man in many ways.
Aerosols, either natural or man-made, may be perceived as "good" (aerosol therapy, production of nano particles for high-technology application, etc.) or "bad" (exposure to dust at work, weather effects, indoor and outdoor particulate pollution, chemical and nuclear safety, radiation protection, etc.)
The Aerosol Science has been - and continues to be - a major field of scientific enquiry, touching on many disciplines, including physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, meteorology, technology, engineering, etc.
An understanding of the aerosols - their characteristics, effects and applications - is of great importance. Therefore, the ASFERA fosters the exchange of information in providing a forum for all persons with an interest in aerosol problems.
Although the word aerosol is popularly used to refer to pressurized spray-can, it is the accepted scientific term, which applies to any microscopic disperse system of liquid or solid particles suspended in a gas.

Aerosol Technology 2018+
Aerosol Technology, AT2018, will be held June 18-20, 2018 at the University of the Basque Country, Bilbao, Spain.
Aerosol Technology follows the trends of previous meetings in Karlsruhe (Germany) and Tampere (Finland) as an interactive forum where scientist from academia and industry can collaborate and develop ideas for new aerosol applications.
Researchers, designers, teachers, students, product developers and companies interested in these topics are welcome to AT2018 in Bilbao.
