Fluidization XV

A ECI Conference Series

May 22-27, 2016
Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello
Quebec, Canada



About This Conference

Overview:  Fluidization technology is applied transversally to diverse fields including catalysis, drying, heat transfer, spray drying, filtration, combustion and other non-catalytic reactions, pneumatic conveying, classification to name a few. This conference series has contributed to these breakthrough technologies particularly in promoting fundamental studies and developing a sound theoretical framework with which we discover and adapt novel applications.

The XV Fluidization Conference welcomes delegates from academia, industry and government who share the vocation to meet societal needs, reduce the environmental footprint of our processes, while at the same time forging new business models to meet the needs of the growing global population. To meet these challenges, we bring together experts in fields beyond fluidization and powder technology and include theoreticians in computational fluid dynamics (a transverse application), nano-processing and materials, catalysis, and biopharmaceuticals.

Our goal is to identify synergies that will inspire creativity and encourage young researchers to pursue careers in the field. In particular, Sessions on Encapsulation, Biomaterials and Fibers, and Composites are devoted to manufacturing or functionalizing materials.

Delegates from leading industrial multi-national corporations and top institutes will give plenary lectures outlining their views on industrial trends and challenges facing humanity.

General Information

Engineering Conferences International (ECI) is a global engineering conferences program, originally established in 1962, that provides opportunities for the exploration of problems and issues of concern to engineers and scientists from many disciplines.

The format of the weeklong research conference provides morning and late afternoon or evening sessions in which major presentations are made. Available time is included during the afternoons for ad hoc meetings, informal discussions, and/or recreation. This format is designed to enhance rapport among participants and promote dialogue on the development of the meeting. We believe that the conferences have been instrumental in generating ideas and disseminating information to a greater extent than is possible through more conventional forums.

All participants are expected both to attend the entire conference and to contribute actively to the discussions. The recording of lectures and presentations is forbidden. As ECI conferences take place in an informal atmosphere, casual clothing is the usual attire.
