Reaching, engaging and supporting ECRs in the atmospheric chemistry community

IGAC-iCACGP ECR 2023 Online conference

The IGAC-iCACGP ECR SSC committee would like to thank everyone who attended for helping us make the first-ever online Early Career Researched science-focused conference.

The conference hosted an estimated 300 people across three different time zones. After highlight talks, informal events and seminars were organized to form and strengthen bonds between ECRs in the atmospheric chemistry community. Each session included a workshop tackling topics early career researchers face. A poster session ended each of the time-zone sessions, allowing ECRs to present and discuss their work in further detail.

Poster prizes

Two recipients were selected in each of the three regions highlighted during the conference, one each from the global North and global South regions. Those recipients will be invited to attend and have their registration and travel covered for the joint iCACGP-IGAC 2024 conference and ECR short course in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
It is our pleasure to announce the recipients of the IGAC-iCACGP 2023 ECR online conference poster prizes:

  • Hao Xu (NIES, Japan) for his work on TROPOMI validation;
  • Pallavi Sahoo (Utkal University, India) for her work on Ammonia emissions;
  • Flossie Brown (University of Exeter, UK) for her work on fire-driven ozone damage to the Amazon;
  • Abdelfettah Benchrif (National Center for Nuclear Energy, Morocco) for his work on PM composition;
  • Olivia Sablan (Colorado State University, USA) for her work on prescribed and agricultural Burns;
  • Facundo Baraldo (Commission on Atomic Energy, Argentina) for his work on PM2.5 analytical processing.
