The International Conference on the Fundamentals of Adsorption (FOA) is the premier international conference in the field of Adsorption. The conference is attended by researchers in adsorption and related fields from throughout the World. Many of the attendees are Chemical Engineers but there are also large numbers of Chemists, Physicists and members of other disciplines. Moreover the level of industrial participation is high. Thus the conference is an excellent forum for the exchange of ideas and information between scientists, engineers in academia and industrial practitioners in the field. A hallmark of the conference is its comprehensive coverage of the spectrum of fundamental research and applications of adsorption, ranging from molecular modeling and simulation of fluids adsorbed in porous materials to the design of pressure swing adsorption systems for industrial gas separation processes.
