    This international congress aims to capture key technological advances in fields heavily dependent on membrane filtration systems such as water, air quality, biomedical sciences, microelectronics, biopharmaceuticals, chemical manufacturing, energy, and mining, oil, gas and power generation.
    From an educational perspective, this meeting will review new synthetic routes of membrane and filtering materials formation. It will reflect on new approaches of merging academic and industrial research together and without compromising the quest for basic scientific advances.
    From a socio-economic perspective, AMSIC-2 will seek to determine how filtration technologies can tackle more effectively practical challenges associated with better access to clean water, improved air quality, the processing of industrial and biopharmaceutical fluids by adopting environmentally friendly practices, and improved healthcare and patient protection.
