PARTICULATE PROCESSES IN THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY III

|Abstract Submission Date: Feb 28, 2011|
The particulate-based manufacturing processes need to be better understood so that they can be properly designed and controlled. The last decade has seen a shift from empirical formulation efforts to an engineering approach based on a better understanding of particulate behaviours in various processes, facilitated by technological advances in computer modelling, manufacture and measurement techniques.
This conference, by bringing together researchers from industry and academia, will be showcasing and demonstrating how the latest R&D in particulate processing can be applied to pharmaceutical industrial design and optimisation as well as how they can cater to emerging regulatory needs. A combination of oral presentations, poster sessions, and workshops will demonstrate the existing expertise and establish future research needs. This will be a perfect opportunity for participants to learn more about the latest trends in particulate process in pharmaceutical unit operations as well as a chance to interact and share their experience with others. Research collaborations will be forged to meet these needs.
The PPPI-III conference will continue the tradition of previous conferences with the well balanced focuses on both fundamental research and industrial application of particulate processing. It will also expand into emerging techniques and applications. The following lists key themes for this conference:
* Theme 1 - Particle Synthesis, Crystallisation, Coating and Drying
* Theme 2 - Particle Packing, Granulation and Compaction
* Theme 3 - Powder Flow and Dispersion, Mixing/Blending and Handling
* Theme 4 - Emerging Research Techniques (e.g. numerical modelling and PAT) and Applications
