The 12th International Conference on the Fundamentals of Adsorption will take place
29 May - 03 June 2016 at the Graf-Zeppelin-Haus in Friedrichshafen/Lake Constance

The International Conference on the Fundamentals of Adsorption (FOA) is the premier international conference in the field of adsorption. The FOA series of conferences started in 1983 and a conference in the series has been held since then every three years. The conference is organised under the auspices of the International Adsorption Society (IAS) and takes place in an alteranating manner in the US, the Asian/Pacific area and Europe. The conference is attended by researchers in adsorption and related fields from throughout the world. Most of the attendees are chemical engineers but there are always also many chemists, physicists and members of other disciplines present. Moreover the level of industrial participation is high. Thus, the conference is an excellent forum for the exchange of ideas and information between scientists and industrial practitioners.
