On May 23 - 28, 2010, the 10th International Conference on Fundamentals of Adsorption (FOA10) will be held at the Awaji Yumebutai (Dream Stage) International Conference Center coupled with the Westin Resort Hotel, Hyogo, Japan. Since 1983, the FOA conference has fostered an international exchange between scientists and engineers of all disciplines - academia and industry, novices and experts - in the field of adsorption.
The conference covers recent advances in all aspects of adsorption from fundamentals to applications. In addition, FOA10 will encourage development and understanding of the unique category of porous material, Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) or Porous Coordination Polymers (PCPs), which exhibit novel adsorption behaviors with potential applications.
In business since 1962, Micromeritics has been a major contributor to the science of adsorption. The company has provided materials characterization instrumentation and applications support to most of the world's top industrial companies and academic institutions for fundamental research, product development, quality assurance and control, production, and process control applications. Micromeritics scientists (Jacek Jagiello, James P. Olivier, and Jeff Kenvin) will participate in a number of presentations at FOA10. In addition, the company is sponsoring a hospitality mixer on Tuesday night, May 25.
