Webinars by PiA in a time of COVID
Next webinar is on 14 October 2020.
What are PiA Webinars?
While we wait for COVID to pass so that we may meet in person at a PiA Conference, PiA is offering webinars.
PiA’s monthly webinars aim to promote scientific interactions between researchers, monitoring agencies, and industry concerned with particles in water. Scientists selected by PiA Steering Committee will be invited to present their work to a broad audience of students, University faculty, engineers in industry, and scientists in government. The PiA Steering Committee will announce resumption of physical conferences when COVID is no longer an issue.
