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 Colloids and Surfaces A.


• 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 Properties

Special 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
