Welcome to the Joint Meeting of the CORESTA Smoke Science and Product Technology Study Groups 2017

It is a real pleasure to welcome you to this year’s CORESTA Joint Meeting of the Smoke Science & Product Technology Study Groups in Kitzbühel, Austria, hosted by delfort.

Nestled in the Tyrolean mountains, Kitzbühel is a sports capital in the heart of the Alps. Located at an altitude of 762 metres, it perfectly combines Austrian tradition and the Alpine lifestyle. Kitzbühel is famous for its unique charm, its breathtaking landscapes, its energising nature, as well as for its top hotels and restaurants.  This makes Kitzbühel the celebrity hot spot in Austria.  Kitzbühel is also known for hosting famous world cup ski races, snow polo, triathlon and tennis trophies, as well as for its hundreds of hiking and walking trails.  The city's heart beats loud and strong!

As we all know, exchange of scientific information is the main priority of CORESTA.  A relaxing and healthy environment, with clean air, pure water and nature close by, is the ideal meeting place for participants to share their ideas with fellow colleagues, discuss their work, and develop new relationships.  This is why we have chosen Kitzbühel, a city conducive to great networking in a friendly and regenerating atmosphere.

We are confident that you will appreciate the beauty and energy of Kitzbühel as much as we do!

Sincerely,

Huub C.M. Vizée
