Invitation & Scopetopics

The International Symposium on Porous Materials 2019 will take place during November 17 - 19, 2019 in Japan. The symposium is intended to provide a forum for researchers in East Asia to discuss recent developments in research and applications of porous materials including zeolites, mesoporous silicas, MOFs, and so on. The symposium will consist of about 16 invited lectures as well as contributed posters. There will only be one single session throughout the meeting, which is aimed to facilitate focused and detailed discussion among the participants.

The symposium aims at promoting the fundamental and applied studies on porous materials. The major topics of the symposium will be:
・Adsorption, Separation and Diffusion
・Computational and Theoretical Investigations

We hope that this symposium will be the start of strengthening the relationship among East Asia, and building a next generation network.
