The January 29-31, 2009, meeting was organized by Helmolz Zentrum Munchen, the Center for Allergy and the Environment, and the Bavarian State Ministry of the Environment and Public Health. The symposium was attended by several hundred international scientists who considered how climate change will impact environmental particles, including pollens, their distribution and activity and the resultant effects on human health.
