April 22-28, 2018 Orlando World Center Marriott, Orlando, FL Held every 4 years since its inception in 1990, the World Congress on Particle Technology is intended to stimulate discussions on the forefront of research in particle science and technology. The 8th World Congress on Particle Technology (WCPT8) will be held in Orlando in conjunction with the 2018 AIChE Spring Meeting and 14th Global Congress on Process Safety. With the help of the AIChE, we have a great program lined up that covers all aspects of fundamental and applied particle technology.
Physics of Dense Suspensions Jan 16, 2018 - Apr 6, 2018 Coordinators: Bulbul Chakraborty, Emanuela Del Gado, and Jeff Morris Scientific Advisors: Wilson Poon Dense, or high-solid-loading, suspensions of particulates in liquids are found in a range of applications across many industrial sectors and in geophysical flows. The size range of the particles may vary from the colloidal (say, 10 nm to 10 μm, where Brownian motion dominates) to the granular (say, 10 μm to 10 mm).
The Northeastern Granular Materials Workshop (NEGW) The NEGW will be held at Nanoscale Mechanics Laboratory, Northeastern University on June 2nd, 2017. NEGW is designed to bring researchers and students in the North East (New England, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania) together to discuss their work on granular materials and explore collaborations. The workshop features pedagogical talks, short contributed talks, and poster sessions. The workshop website is here. The talks and poster sessions will take place in McCleod suites, rooms 318, 320, and 322, Curry Student Center.
Kansas State University Bulk Solids Innovation Center The Kansas State University Bulk Solids Innovation Center is a nearly 13,000-square-foot facility, located in Salina, Kan. It is used to study and develop the understanding of bulk solids materials handling, in turn enhancing the businesses that use these materials or manufacture the systems that convey, store and dispense them. This university-level research center is the only one of its kind in North America.
