Bourns Technology Center was also the location of the Seventh International PEMS
Conference, which was held on March 30th and 31st. 200 people from over 50
different companies, agencies or institutions representing 10 countries from around
the world came together to exchange ideas, develop new projects and form
partnerships for the implementation of Portable Emissions Measurement
Systems (PEMS).

Zississ Samaras, Professor, Aristotle University – Thessaloniki, Greece, opened the
conference with a presentation on Assessing Real Driving Emissions in Europe: An
update- Focus on PN Emissions, in which he discussed updates on the recent
real-driving emissions regulations in Europe and the associated environmental
challenges. The discussion included the  DowntoTen research project, which
proposes a robust approach for the measurement of particles from about 10 nm both
for PMP and RDE, complementing and building upon regulation development

A comprehensive PEMS panel discussion followed, with topics including regulatory
development and trends, approaches for making in-use particle measurements,
development of new instrumentation for in-use and PEMS measurements,
PEMS applications for full fleet characterization, and research developments. Panel
members included Zississ Samaras, Aristotle University; Carl Fulper, EPA;
Matti Maricq, Ford Motor Company; Alberto Ayala, CARB; Tao Huai, CARB; and
