Workshop Scope

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.

We invite interested colleagues, including the participants of the CPM-7 conference, to attend a Discussion Forum to be held immediately after CPM-7 on Thursday, May 7th, 2015 starting at 9:00 am at the Delray Beach Marriott entitled: "Characterization and Application of Nanoporous Materials: Bridging from Fundamentals to Practice Part II – Bringing together Academia, Industry and National Laboratories."

This forum, which represents a follow-up of the successful event held after CPM-6 in 2012, will feature invited lectures by renowned scientists from academia, industry and national laboratories, coupled with a discussion session.

Participation in this event is free of charge. Please note that the number of participants for this forum will be limited to a maximum of 40.

If you are interested in participating, please contact the CPM-7 organizers by e-mail: or you may also directly contact the chairs of this discussion forum:
Dr. Matthias Thommes (E-mail: )
Dr. Roger van Zee (E-mail: )
Prof. Alexander Neimark (Email:

If you are interested in participating in the discussion forum, we would like to hear from you by April 10, 2015.
