TAC-2 is an international conference taking place in Aachen and Maastricht from 22-25 June 2009. It is jointly organised by the Institute of Atmospheric Physics at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI). The conference covers all aspects of the impact of the different modes of transport (aviation, road transport, shipping etc.) on atmospheric chemistry, microphysics, radiation and climate. Because of the global relevance of the conference themes, experts from all over the world will be present.

In the first part of the policymaker event, the present state of knowledge on the impact of aviation, shipping and road traffic on climate and environment will be summarised by world-leading experts. In a second part, policymakers are given the opportunity to pose questions, and a discussion will take place. The event will be opened by Tineke Huizinga, State Secretary of the Dutch Ministry for Transport, Public Works and Water Management, high-ranking representatives of the Bundesminsterium für Umwelt, Naturschutz und Reaktorsicherheit, and the European Commission.

Participation is free for Netherlands, German and Belgian governmental policymakers. For other policymakers, the participation fee is 20 euros. You can register by filling in and faxing the registration form (download in DOC or PDF format).

Deadline for registration: 1 June 2009.
