2020 Atmospheric Chemical Mechanisms Conference

ACM 2020

Event Date


This year's ACM Conference was originally scheduled for December 2-4, 2020. However, due to COVID-19 and the uncertainty of the safety of bringing people together for a conference, it was held virtually over 2.5 weeks in November and was a resounding success! We were honored to host 59 Principal Presentations and 22 Lightning Presentations for our 237 attendees.

Thank you to the California Air Resources Board for their continued support of this conference and the research content!
