PPM 2013 Proceedings Book

The Porous and Powder Materials Symposium and Exhibition, PPM 2013 was a huge success with over 700 participants from around 50 countries. With 24 plenary and invited talks by the distinguished experts and over 170 oral presentations from various fields, PPM 2013 lived up to the high expectations set for a symposium which was first of its kind. The proceeding book of PPM 2013 (ISBN: 978-975-6590-05-8) contained 12 invited and 174 regular, papers and was in high demand in the 2 years since its print.Also, both the exhibition and the workshops which were run parallel to the symposium enjoyed the extraordinary attention from this wide audience.

Now, we are ready to hold The International Porous and Powder Materials Symposium and Exhibition, PPM 2015 in September 15-18, 2015.

The venue of the symposium is the lavish Ilıca Hotel Spa & Welness Resort Hotel in the beautiful resort town of Cesme in Izmir (Turkey). The symposium is again anticipated to be one of the largest gatherings of its kind with a broad attendance from academia, research organizations, and industry.

The purpose of the symposium is to create an environment for scientific and technological discussions and exchange ideas between academia and industry on fundamental aspects of characterization, manipulation, production and usage of porous and powder materials widely used in construction, sound and heat insulation, coating, ceramics, filling, packaging, storage, waste treatment, metallurgy, textile, pharmaceuticals, hygiene, defense, aerospace and other applications.

The symposium will also host an exhibition for displaying products, characterization and production equipments. 

On behalf of the PPM 2015 Organizing Committee,

Prof. Dr. Metin Tanoglu and Prof. Dr. Mehmet Polat
