A new notice has come out regarding the 8th conference in the series that began in Vancouver, Canada in 1998. Information will be added to our conference page as it becomes available. Information from the first announcement is given in the paragraph below. We encourage everyone to consider attending.
The conference is the premier international gathering of fog and dew researchers from around the world. The ongoing series provides a dynamic forum for the exchange of ideas and the latest research findings from scientists worldwide interested in the life cycle of fog and dew at the interface between surface, vegetation and the atmosphere, and in the collection of fog and dew for freshwater production. Its interdisciplinary character gives this conference series a unique character at the crossroads between fog and dew physics and chemistry and their interactions with and impacts on vegetation, materials, and human activities. The conference features in-situ and remote sensing observations of fog and dew properties, high-resolution and numerical weather prediction modeling, equipment design for fog and dew collection, studies of water collection and use from fog and dew in arid environments, and examination of ecosystem interactions and impacts. The conference’s one-week format, gathering about 200 people, allows for ample plenary oral sessions and several long poster sessions conducive to in-depth scientific exchange. An exciting social program that provides opportunities to foster new collaborations boosts this scientific networking forum.
