Air pollution and health: statistical challenges in the modelling and in communicating the results
One day meeting on air pollution and health - Royal Statistical Society
24 April 2017, 10am - 5pm
Organising Group(s): RSS Emerging Applications Section and Environmental Statistics Section
This meeting aims at bringing together a range of researchers from several disciplines related to air pollution and health. In particular we want to focus on some of the recent statistical challenges emerging in the field and on how the models and the results can be communicated to the general public and to the policy makers.
