July 10-12, 2019 at California Institute of Technology
This workshop aims to bring HAQAST PIs and stakeholders/members of the public into close discussion.
The public meeting will feature two full days of meetings including interactive presentations, talks, roundtables, and a poster session, along with a third half-day of hands-on breakout sessions
Registration for HAQAST6 is now open! We will be hosted by Dr. Jessica Neu of NASA JPL at Caltech, July 10 – 12, 2019, and we’d love to see you there.

HAQAST6 Funding for Stakeholder Travel
One of HAQAST’s core missions is to bring more stakeholders into the NASA health and air quality community, and we’ve found that one of the most effective ways to do so is to offer stipends to help defray the cost of attending our biannual HAQAST meetings.
Thanks to NASA’s generosity, we can once again offer approximately fifteen $1500 travel stipends.
Anyone can apply for a travel award; however, we will prioritize applicants from the public (rather than academic research) community; those who extend the HAQAST orbit (public health folks take note!); and those who have not yet attended a HAQAST conference.
Find the very brief, five-minute application here.
Q: WILL NASA BE PROVIDING FUNDING FOR STAKEHOLDER TRAVEL LIKE THEY DID FOR HAQAST5?
A: Yes! See above to apply.
Q: WHAT IS THE LATEST I CAN WAIT TO BOOK MY HOTEL?
A: If you are planning on coming to HAQAST6, you should book as soon as possible. There is no advantage in waiting, and if you delay too long, you will not be able to take advantage of our discounted room rate.
Q: WHEN WILL AN AGENDA BE AVAILABLE?
A: Since we generate the agenda from the registration list, a final agenda typically isn’t available until a few weeks before the conference. A draft agenda will be available sooner, and if your agency requires an agenda for approving travel, please reach out to Daegan Miller, HAQAST communications coordinator.
Q: IS THERE AN ATTENDANCE FEE?
A: No. HAQAST6 is free to attend.
Q: I’M INTERESTED IN SPONSORING A COFFEE BREAK/LUNCH/RECEPTION. HOW DO I DO THAT?
A: We are actively seeking sponsors for HAQAST6–if you are interested in supporting a coffee break, lunch, or reception, please contact HAQAST communications coordinator, Daegan Miller.
