Registration for WFC 13 will open in April of 2022.  All WFC 13 activities will take place at the San Diego Bayfront Hilton.  The Hilton is in the heart of downtown San Diego and within walking distance to the historic Gaslamp District.  

We are planning to meet in person.  We are monitoring recommendations and guidelines from the CDC and WHO, as well as the city of San Diego and the state of California.  Adjustments will be made if necessary.

The congress includes more than 300 presentations, hundreds of posters, numerous invited keynote speakers devoted to solid-liquid, solid-gas, and membrane separations respectively.  The congress will also feature three symposium sessions of filtration in energy, environment, and health.  Plenary and keynote speakers have also been invited for the three symposia sessions.
