Conference Themes

This Joint Forum will bring together researchers and practitioners from the particle science and technology community in a convivial atmosphere to discuss recent advances in the field, identify research areas of particular focus, establish new international collaborations and strengthen existing ones.

The themes of this forum consist of both fundamental and applied aspects of particle science and engineering, including particle synthesis, characterisation and measurement, particle processing and manufacture, bulk powder handling, bulk flow characterisation, particulate product engineering, modelling and simulation, and emerging applications of particle technology.

The forum will include invited lectures, oral presentations and poster presentations. The official language of the forum will be English. We invite entries for the best student posters and the Young Researcher Awards (more information can be found here). The topics will include, but are not limited to:

  • Particle design, characterisation and measurement
  • Particulate processes and manufacturing
  • Multiscale and multiphase modelling and simulation
  • Geotechnical and environmental applications and processes
  • Particle technology in energy engineering applications
  • Emerging technologies and novel engineering applications
