The conference will be organized on the following topics:


- Separation of dispersed phases from liquid
(including decantation and thickening in gravity settlers and thickeners; cake and clarifying filtration in vacuum and pressure filters; centrifugal separations in filtering or sedimenting centrifuges and hydro-cyclones; solid-liquid expression, liquid-liquid and solid-liquid extractions; flotation for emulsions and suspensions; adsorption),

- Separation of dispersed phases from gas (including separations in filters, electrostatic precipitators, cyclones and wet scrubbers, emission reduction),

- Membrane Separation (including microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, reverse osmosis and pervaporation),

- Predicting and monitoring of separations (including computer modeling, imaging, process monitoring, testing and validation; suspensions, emulsions and mists characterization, from nanoparticles to agglomerates ),

- Technical developments in filter media (e.g. woven and non-woven media, membranes, composite and renewable media, filter aids),

- Processes Intensification and Innovative Technologies (field assisted: electrical, magnetic, acoustic, vibrational methods in separation processes and in pre-treatment/post-treatment operations; bio- and chemical enhancement of coagulation and flocculation, advances and combined processes and equipment),

- Pre-treatment, Post-treatment and Related Processes and Technique (crystallization, coagulation and flocculation, coalescence, washing, drying),

- Product Related Filtration and Separation Applications (in, for example, water and waste water treatment, chemical and related industries, mineral industry, paper making, food and beverage production, pharmaceutical and health, textile, iron and steel, surfactants, cosmetics and perfume, electronics, automotive systems, clean room technology),

- Fluid-Particle Separation to fulfill new “green processes” requirements
