14 – 17 September 2014, Melbourne, Australia
The inaugural International Symposium on Mixing in Industrial Processes (ISMIP) was held in Quebec City, Canada in 1995. Since then the symposium has been held in countries around the world including Mexico, Japan, France, Spain, Canada and China.
ISMIP8 will continue to build on the foundation of past symposiums and bring together the global fluid mixing community across academia, industry, private and governmental research institutions to share and discuss the latest research developments, as well as being a topical forum to highlight research that has industrial relevance and applications. The theme of ISMIP8 is energy efficiency, process intensification and product quality in mixing processes and the organising committee is inviting abstracts that reflect and expand upon this theme.
This unique international mixing symposium is a great opportunity for those in the mixing community to learn a range of topics from basic to advanced knowledge, to network with new and old friends and to share experiences. The symposium will be held in Melbourne, Australia, a city that has been named the most liveable city in the world by the Global Liveability Survey. On behalf of the ISMIP8 organising committee, we wish to invite the global mixing community to participate in the 2014 symposium and we look forward to welcoming you to beautiful Melbourne!
