The Workshop will provide an opportunity to review and discuss the state-of-the-art approaches to characterize porous materials of different origin. Lectures by recognized leaders in porous materials science will cover both theoretical principles and methodology of modern experimental techniques. Oral presentations and poster sessions will complement invited and keynote lectures. Proceedings will be published as a special volume of Microporous and Mesoporous Materials journal.Topics
• Molecular Thermodynamics of Fluids in Pores • Adsorption and Capillary Phenomena • Intermolecular Interactions in Porous Confinements • Computer Simulations and Density Functional Theory • Energetic Heterogeneity of Surfaces • Fractal Characterization of Disordered Structures • Adsorption Porosimetry of Micro and Mesoporous Solids • Mercury Porosimetry and Liquid Intrusion Techniques • Thermoporometry and Calorimetry • Chromatographic Characterization of Porous Materials • High Resolution Microscopy and Image Analysis • Scattering Techniques for Pore Structure Analysis • Relations Between Structural, Transport, and Functional PropertiesSpecial sessions will focus on:
• Novel Nanoporous Materials and Adsorption Processes for Industrial Applications • Computational Design and Screening of Novel Adsorbents • Modeling and Characterization of Hierarchical Nanostructured Materials • Adsorption Induced Deformation and Phase Transformations of Porous Frameworks • In-situ Monitoring of Adsorption and Fluid Flow in Porous Structures • Adsorption and Characterization of Geosorbents: Shale, Coal, Soil. • Adsorption of Polymers, Proteins, and Nanoparticles on Porous Substrates

CPM-8 Program is now available!
We are extremely delighted to announce that we will have a world-class program of scientific presentations; The program is composed of 58 podium talks, including keynote and invited lectures, which in addition to the 100 poster presentations embraces a wide spectrum of micro- and mesoporous materials, characterization techniques, and theoretical/computational methods related to the characterization of porous materials. With the authors representing 29 countries, CPM-8 is going to become one of the largest international events in porous materials in 2018!

Poster Abstract Deadline for Recent Research Reports EXTENDED!
The deadline for submission of abstracts reporting recent research has been extended to March 11th 2018. Submit your abstract now at cpm8.rutgers.edu
NSF Travel Grant
We are happy to announce that NSF has awarded a travel grant to support US students, postdocs, and junior faculty, who present papers at CPM-8. The reimbursement amount will depend on the number of eligible participants. Requests for travel support should be submitted to CPM-8 Organizers <firstname.lastname@example.org> and Prof. Gennady Gor <gor@NJIT.edu> as soon as possible but not later than Feb 15th. Request should be made by the eligible CPM-8 participant and, in case of students and postdocs, a supporting letter from the adviser is required. We remind that it is not too late to submit poster abstracts for recent research reports by Feb 15th and encourage US faculty to bring their students to CPM-8.
