Synergic Effects of the Exposure to Air Pollutants Indoors

• Objective/motivation for organizing workshop

Motivation

When analyzing the adverse health effects of inhaling polluted indoor air, it should be noted that residents are sometimes exposed to around a hundred air pollutants or classes of air pollutants. Therefore, rather than investigating the unique effects of specific pollutants, it has been suggested that it would be wiser to assume that it is a mixture of pollutants that could be considered harmful to health. Of course, potential interactions between pollutants appear to be the underlying problem needed to explain the relationship between human exposure to pollutants (present in various environments, including ambient air) and their health status. However, since people spend most of their time indoors, this problem seems to be of particular concern indoors. Therefore, it is important to analyze existing data on the synergistic effects of indoor air pollution, then draw conclusions and identify the most promising directions for future research.

Objectives

1. Synergic effects of airborne solid particles and gaseous pollutants

2. Synergic effects of biological particles and other air pollutants

3. Synergy and allergy symptoms

4. New tools in the analysis of health care of residents exposed to air pollutants (aggregative risk index, synergy of small doses of air pollutants, etc.)

• Format (presentations, round-table, invited speeches)

Round-table

• Target audience

Air protection professionals, environmental health researchers, environmental engineers, Ph.D. students, public health policy makers.

• Names and affiliations of proposed chairpersons and organizers
