The following is a selected list of conferences of interest to BZA members. A full conference diary, including international meetings, is maintained by the IZA on their website.

12th International Symposium on the Characterisation of Porous Solids (COPS-XII)

7th International Conference on Metal-Organic Frameworks and Open Framework Compounds

13th International Conference on the Fundamentals of Adsorption, 26 - 31 May 2019, Cairns, Australia
The International Conference on Fundamentals of Adsorption (FOA) is the largest and most important conference in the field of liquid and gas adsorption attended by the world leading scientists and engineers from academia, government, and industry.  The FOA series of conferences originated in 1983 and a conference in the series has been held every three years since that time. The conference is held under the auspices of the International Adsorption Society (IAS) and usually takes place in the US, Asian/Pacific area, and Europe, on a rotation basis. For the first time ever, the conference will take place in the Southern Hemisphere – in Cairns, Australia.

Featuring over 100 speakers, more than 20 sessions and daily poster sessions, the conference will cover the key themes of:

• Fundamentals of Adsorbents – Synthesis, Characterisation and Properties
• Molecular Modelling of Adsorption and Adsorbent-adsorbate systems
• Physical Chemistry of adsorbate-adsorbent interactions, multicomponent adsorption, diffusion
• Metal-organic frameworks, zeolites, carbons, silicas, nanomaterials, and other micro and mesoporous materials
• Gas, liquid, and bio-sorption
• Process technologies for adsorption-based separation: cyclic adsorption, simulated moving bed, chromatography
• Industrial application areas of gas separation, biochemical separation, fluid storage,
• New apparatus for adsorption measurement and characterisation

4th Annual UK Porous Materials conference , 1st and 2nd of July, 2019, at the School of Chemistry, Cardiff University.
