Leading indoor environment experts to convene at Syracuse University to discuss air quality and urban environments

The impact of indoor and urban environments on human health and performance will be addressed at a national symposium to be held on Oct. 30 and 31 at Syracuse University. The first-of its-kind event will bring together experts who study indoor environments, urban ecosystems and human and health performance.

One of the most critical challenges the global community will face in the 21st century is environmental quality, says Syracuse University Vice Chancellor and Provost Deborah A. Freund. The symposium will bring together scholars and experts from distinct disciplines who have a lot to offer each other. By encouraging the discussion across disciplines, we hope to establish research that might not be considered without the symposium.

The event is sponsored by the Environmental Quality Systems (EQS) Center and the New York Indoor Environmental Quality Center, Inc. (NYIEQ). The symposium will feature keynote speaker Steve Page, director of the Office of Radiation and Indoor Air for the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The symposium will also include plenary speakers, panel discussions and technical presentations. All of the conference activities are designed to energize the community that is driving environmental systems initiatives in New York State and across the country.

We hope to establish relationships and partnerships with indoor environmental quality experts from all over the world, says Lee Davis, director of NYIEQ. These relationships will expand our ability to attract important research grants that will lead to a portfolio of technologies, commercialization and job creation in Central New York.

The symposium is the largest national initiative undertaken by the EQS center, a consortium led by Syracuse University that was awarded $15.9 million by the

New York State Office of Science, Technology and Academic Research (NYSTAR) in May of 2001. The EQS center combines the expertise and resources of S
