The Porous and Powder Materials Symposium and Exhibitions, PPM 2013, PPM 2015 and PPM 2017 were huge successes each with over 500 participants from over 50 countries. With numerous plenary and invited talks by the distinguished experts and over 170 oral presentations from various fields in each symposia, PPMs lived up to the high expectations set by the original PPM 2013. The proceeding books of PPM 2013 (ISBN: 978-975-6590-05-8), PPM 2015 (ISBN: 978-975-6590-07-2) and PPM 2017 (ISBN: 978-975-6590-09-6) contained close to 500 full papers and were cited widely after their print.
Now, we are ready to hold The 4th International Porous and Powder Materials Symposium and Exhibition, PPM 2019 in October 9-11, 2019.
The venue of the symposium is one of the most beautiful resort hotels: Labranda Mares in Marmaris, Turkey (www.labrandaresort.com/maresmarmaris). The symposium is anticipated to be one of the largest gatherings of its kind with a broad attendance from academia, research organizations, and industry.
The purpose of the symposium is to create an environment for scientific and technological discussions and exchange ideas between academia and industry on fundamental aspects of characterization, manipulation, production and usage of porous and powder materials widely used in construction, sound and heat insulation, coating, ceramics, filling, packaging, storage, waste treatment, metallurgy, textile, pharmaceuticals, hygiene, defense, aerospace and other applications.
The symposium will also host an exhibition for displaying products, characterization and production equipments along with several workshops dedicated to specific areas of porous and powder materials.
