The material in this document was originally prepared for the Second in Colloquium on Particulate Air Pollution and Human Mortality and Morbidity held May 1-3, 1996, in Park City, Utah. The meeting was sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention / NIOSH, and the California Air Resources Board, with co-sponsorship by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Centers for Occupational and Environmental Health (Irvine and the University of Utah), the Department of Community and Environmental Medicine - University of California, Irvine, the South Coast Air Quality Management District, the Utah Department of Environmental Quality, Geneva Steel, the Health Effects Institute, the American Automobile Manufacturers Association and the American Iron and Steel Institute. The included material covers the colloquium program (104 presentations), all 95 abstracts and 40 papers prepared for the Colloquium, as well as ten session summaries and seven unsolicited commentaries. The material in these Proceedings has not been peer-reviewed. Therefore, the upcoming special issue of Applied Occupational and Environmental Health should be used if one is interested in those papers that were sent through peer-review.
