The 1st International Conference on Atmospheric Dust ( took place in Castellaneta Marina (Italy) from 2nd to 6th June 2014. This conference was a unique opportunity to bring together experts from different fields (such as geochemistry, physics, volcanology and mineralogy) to discuss and exchange knowledge on the boundless world of the atmospheric particles. The ITaRS fellows Ioannis Binietoglou, Lev Labzovsky and Pilar Gumà-Claramunt contributed to the conference with the oral presentations "Near real-time lidar aerosol products for dust model evaluation and assimilation", "Characteristics of a major Saharan dust event during May 2013 at Magurele, Romania" and "Aerosol observations with a cloud radar" respectively.
