Following on the success of the previous conferences in the series 'Engineering with Membranes' (Il Ciocco, Italy April 1994; Granada, Spain June 2001, Camogli, Italy May 2005), we are pleased to announce that 'Engineering with Membranes 2008' will be held in May 2008 at Algarve ( Portugal ).

This conference aims to explore the way that new developments in monitoring and characterisation can be used through mathematical modelling to develop novel and improved membrane processes. These developments are aided by the smaller scales that are accessed by the latest microscopy methods, the molecular insights form the latest characterisation techniques and the increased sophistication in modelling which is enabled by increased computing power.

The EWM 2008 conference scope will cover the following and related areas:

Membrane development and fabrication
Characterisation of membranes and membrane processes
New methodology for modelling membrane formation and processes
Sensing and monitoring of membrane processes
Application of molecular modelling
Multi-scale modelling of membrane processes
System and complexity analysis on membrane processes
Application case studies
Other related topics

The conference format includes oral and poster presentations in the morning and evenings, leaving the afternoons for networking and group activities.


Additional Information

As the previous conferences, EWM 2008 is sponsored by the European Membrane Society (EMS). EMS encourages student participation. Some bursaries will be available for presenting students and young researchers.
