About the Workshop

The 24th CRC Real World Emissions Workshop’s objective is to share information on recent and ongoing research on real world emissions in the following topic areas:

  • Emissions Modeling
  • Improving the Emissions Inventory
  • Particulate Matter Emissions
  • Measurement Methods: Improvements and New Techniques
  • Unregulated Emissions
  • Inspection / Maintenance (I/M) and OBD
  • Fuel Effects on Exhaust Emissions
  • Off Road / Nonroad Emissions

Researchers from sixteen foreign countries participated in last year’s workshop, which was co-sponsored by the U.S. EPA, CARB, and SCAQMD.

The workshop will return to the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay in San Diego, California. Registration begins at 4:30 pm on Sunday, March 30. The workshop will start at 8:30 a.m. Monday, March 31, and end at approximately 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 2.

There is a two-tiered registration fee for all attendees (including presenters): $500 if paid by March 7, 2014, or $600 after March 7, 2014. The fee includes breakfast, breaks, and lunch each day, and a special dinner event on Monday evening.

Call for Papers

If you want to make an oral presentation or present a poster at the workshop, please return an abstract application and an abstract to CRC for review by the Organizing Committee. The deadline for applications is October 29, 2013. If you would like to present a demonstration at the workshop, please return an abstract application along with an abstract and a demonstration application.

Acceptance of abstracts is judged on the basis of content, originality, and relevance to the workshop topics. Presentations can describe works in progress or even planned work if the project is of sufficient scope and relevance. Preference is given to talks containing new research results.

Technical presentations on new instruments relevant to the workshop are encouraged; however, presentations should not be of a marketing or promotional nature. A template for abstracts can be found here. Further instructions for preparing an abstract are available here, and an example can be seen here.

The Coordinating Research Council assumes the right to publish or reproduce the abstracts and presentations given at the Real World Emissions Workshop on the CRC website, conference proceedings, and to summarize these materials in articles for other publications.

If you do not plan to present a paper or poster, but would like to attend the workshop, you can register online. The preliminary agenda is expected to be available on our website by early January 2014.
