Abstract submission deadline is 5 June 2020!


14–16 August 2020
Beijing, China

The workshop will focus on advancing our understanding of porous materials, structures, and associated dynamics of both solid and fluid phases, including new physics, methods, and analysis. New development in theory, experimental methods, and applications will be included. In particular we are interested in the use of high-resolution imaging, digital simulation, and analytics techniques to gain insights and new applications. Our goal is to bring academia and industrial scientists of diverse disciplines together to share their discoveries and challenges.
