This conference series began in 1985 and the overall goal remains the same: To bring together researchers working in the frontier areas of a variety of separation technologies.

We hope to attract researchers working in adsorption, absorption, bioseparations, chromatography, crystallization, distillation, membranes, novel technologies, etc. The focus will be on new separation media, new separation techniques and new technologies breaking out. These aspects are key to the challenges appearing in carbon capture and sequestration, desalination, and increasing application needs in bioseparations among others. The issues of sustainability, energy consumption and process intensification will be ever present in all of our deliberations.

A very large fraction of the current research in separations involves membranes and adsorbents. New separation media being discovered or developed impact both areas. Therefore in this conference there will be significant attention to the developments in separation media and the role of modeling in such activity. The nature of the separation device and the separation technique employed is crucial to the exploitation of the novel separation media. What novel separation technologies are breaking out is another area of importance.

We expect high and continued interest in the conference on Separations Technology since it is such a crucial part of a number of major industrial processes around the world.
Session topics and program

The program will include sessions on:

        Adsorption and Chromatography: Materials, techniques and technologies
        Bioseparations:  Recent advances (Novel materials, continuous processes, hybrid systems)
        Separation media synthesis and modeling
        Membrane separations (Novel membranes and processes)
        Crystallization and solid/liquid separations
        Other technologies, especially novel separation technologies

Format:  The conference will be held according to the typical format of ECI. It will be held for 4.5 days, beginning on Sunday evening and continuing until the following Friday noon. Sometimes two sessions in the morning will focus on two different areas/topics.

Morning and evening sessions will be scheduled to strike a balance between oral presentations, poster paper session, small group interactions, and informal discussions. Each session may have one invited keynote lecture, followed by several oral presentations. Wednesday afternoon and evening will be kept aside for sightseeing. The conference banquet is scheduled for Thursday evening. Attendance at the conference will be limited in order to encourage maximum interaction. All participants will stay at the conference hotel.
