The international conference on Atmospheric Sciences and Application to Air Quality (ASAAQ) was initiated in Seoul in 1985. Since then, ASAAQ has been held in Tokyo, Shanghai, Seoul, Seattle, Beijing, Taipei, Tsukuba, San Francisco, Hong Kong, Jinan, Seoul, Kobe, and Strasbourg. Over past seceral decades, air pollution in the Asia Pacific region has become serious, particularly in urban areas, due to rapid industrialisation and urbanization. ASAAQ offers an opportunity to discuss and scientifically support improvement of the atmospheric environment in the region and the world. It is our pleasure and honour to announce that ASAAQ 15 will take place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 28th-30th October 2019, and will foster scientific discussion and exchange of information on the latest research and practical applications of atmospheric science to air quality issues.

The conference has secured a journal special issue, namely 'Atmosphere, Air Quality and Health’ by Springer and selected papers will be published in this journal. All other papers will be published in the SCOPUS-indexed IOP Conference Series.
