The TF HTAP's next meeting will take place 1-3 February 2012 in Pasadena, California. The meeting will be held in conjunction with a workshop of the AC&C Model Intercomparison Project (ACCMIP), which will take place in the same venue 30 January - 1 February. The two meetings are being hosted by the U.S. EPA with support from NASA/JPL's Center for Climate Sciences and the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry Project . Participants can register for both meetings here.

The TF HTAP meeting will focus on refining the draft Work Plan for 2011-2015 , with a goal of identifying specific projects and project leaders who will carry out the work plan moving forward.  

The development of the draft Work Plan has been documented on the HTAP wiki .  It addresses the objectives, policy questions, and research themes identified at the 2011 Arona meeting (ECE.EB.AIR.GE.1.2011.7) .
