Who Should Attend

Designed to bridge academics and industri al scientists, the tri-annual CPM Workshops are distinguished by their interdisciplinary program, interactive style of presentations, and vivid discussions. 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.

Industrial Applications

• Adsorbents and Catalysts • Carbons, Zeolites, Metal-Organic Frameworks • Mesoporous Crystals and Hybrid Structures • Nanostructured Substrates • Nanofibers and Fibrous Materials • Pharmaceuticals and Drug Delivery Systems • Biomedical and Personal Care Products • Papers, Filters, and Membranes • Disordered Surfaces and Fractals • Textiles and Nonwovens • Soil and Geomaterials


The CPM-8 Workshop will be organized in a similar manner as the previous meetings in this tri-annual series held in Princeton in 1997, 2000, 2003, 2006, New Brunswick, 2009, and Delray Beach in 2012 and 2015. CPM-7 workshop was held at the same venue in 2015, featured 137 papers presented by the researchers from 22 countries. Delray Beach is a beautiful place that provides the participants with an opportunity to combine the meeting with a couple of vacation days in sunny Florida.
