International Conference on Separation Technology, ICoST 2013 will be held in Johor Bahru, Malaysia from September 19th to 21st, 2013. This conference will be organized byCentre of Lipid Engineering and Applied Research (CLEAR), a centre of excellence at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), in collaboration with Nagoya University.
The ICoST is designed to explore the role of smart technological opportunities in the areas of separation processes. The idea of ICoST is to provide the platform for the researchers, scholars, scientists, engineers, students, technologists and application developers from the universities all around the world and the industry to present ongoing research activities, exchange and share their experiences and hence to foster research relations between the universities and the industry. This conference provides opportunities for the delegates to exchange new ideas and application experiences face to face, to establish business or research relations, and to find global partners for future collaboration.
All submitted articles should report original and previously unpublished research results. Articles submitted to the conference should meet these criteria and must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts should follow the style of full paper format and are subject to both review and editing.
ALL ACCEPTED paper will be published in special issue of Jurnal Teknologi (Scopus Indexed) or in Book Chapter (with ISBN). Special award will be given to the best paper for each category which will be judged based on the quality of the paper and the value of the research finding.
The conference will cover a broad range of topics on the separation processes and technologies.These include but are not limited to:
- Membranes Technology
- Advance Separation Technology
- Extraction Technology
- Professor Motonobu Goto is a professor at Department of Chemical Engineering, Graduate School of Engineering, Nagoya University, Japan, since 2012.
