8th International Workshop on Characterization of Porous Materials: From Angstroms to Millimeters

6 - 9 May 2018, Delray Beach, Florida

The Workshop will provide an opportunity to review and discuss the state-of-the-art approaches to characterize porous materials of different origin. Lectures by recognized leaders in porous materials science will cover both theoretical principles and methodology of modern experimental techniques. Oral presentations and poster sessions will complement invited and keynote lectures. Proceedings will be published as a Special Volume of Colloids and Surfaces A.

Topics Special sessions will focus on:

• Novel Nanoporous Materials and Adsorption Processes for Industrial Applications • Computational Design and Screening of Novel Adsorbents • Modeling and Characterization of Hierarchical Nanostructured Materials • Adsorption Induced Deformation and Phase Transformations of Porous Frameworks • In-situ Monitoring of Adsorption and Fluid Flow in Porous Structures • Adsorption and Characterization of Geosorbents: Shale, Coal, Soil. • Adsorption of Polymers, Proteins, and Nanoparticles on Porous Substrates

10th International Conference on the Occurrence, Properties, and Utilization of Natural Zeolites – Zeolite 2018

24 - 29 June 2018, Krakow, Poland

The 10th International Conference on the Occurrence, Properties, and Utilization of Natural Zeolites – Zeolite 2018 will be held from the 24th to 29th of June 2018 in Krakow, Poland (info).On behalf of the Organizing Committee of Zeolite 2018, we have the pleasure to cordially invite all researchers and interested parties to join us in participating in the scientific conference and related events.

Kraków has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Polish academic, cultural, and artistic life and is one of Poland’s most important economic hubs. 

10th International Mesostructured Materials Symposium 10 -13 Sep 2018 Los Angeles

The International Mesostructured Materials Symposium is focused on materials where architecture at the mesoscale (~2 – 50 nm) plays a dominant role in controlling materials properties. While the conference has historically focused on mesoporous materials, this year’s conference welcomes all aspects of science and engineering research where nanoscale architecture plays a dominant role in controlling function or properties. Relevant topics include materials synthesis, materials characterization, and all applications of mesostructured materials. Applications encompass, but are not limited to catalysis, separations, drug delivery, and a broad range of topics related to energy harvesting and storage. Abstract deadline: May 15th 2018
