The range of applications of the membrane techniques to environmental protection is becoming larger. Thus, a review and co-ordination of the researches in this field seem to be advisable and reasonable. It is also desirable to bring together research scientists and engineers from industry who introduce the membrane technology into industry practice.

The aim of the conference is to give an overview of the most recent development of membrane technology and its application to environmental protection and other engineering fields.
The paper will be presented as:
-     an oral presentation,
-     a poster display.
The conference discussion will cover the following:
-     water and wastewater desalination using membrane techniques,
-     membrane application to water and wastewater treatment,
-     membrane gas separation, pervaporation and membrane distillation,
-     membrane reactors,
-     modelling of membrane transport and separation, and other engineering problems,
-     preparation and characterisation of membranes and their application to environmental protection,
-     application of membranes to biotechnology,
-     membranes in environmental monitoring.
Persons interested in conference participation should:
-     fill in the reply form by 31 October 2005,
-     submit an full text of oral or poster presentation in English (not exceeding 8 A4 pages with a diskette) by 31 December 2005 at the latest.
The second circular, dealing with the participation requirements and the location of Conference will be sent by September 2005.

Estimated conference cost (proceeding, hotel accommodation, meals) - approx. 330 Euro.

Duration of the Conference - 3 days.
