The Sixth European Symposium on "Physico-Chemical Behaviour of Atmospheric Pollutants" will take place in Varese, Italy on 18-22 October 1993.

The Conference is organized by the Commission of the European Communities Joint Research Centre (Environment Institute) and DG XII/D-1 (environmental technologies unit) in the framework of the concerted action "Atmospheric Chemistry (COST 611 follow-up). It will also incorporate a workshop on "The role of clouds in tropospheric chemistry", jointly organized with EUROTRAC, the EUREKA experiment on transport and transformation of environmentally relevant trace components in the atmosphere over Europe.

The objective of the Symposium is to review the current status of research within the concerted action. The papers presented will be on recent experimental and theoretical work. Priority is given to the following subjects (though contributions concerning other topics are not excluded):
- Oxidization efficiency of the atmosphere;
- Transport processes;
- Instrumental and analytical techniques;
- The role of clouds in tropospheric chemistry (joint CEC-EUROTRAC workshop).

Participants (limited to about 200) will be invited by the countries collaborating in the concerted action or by the Commission of the European Communities.
