WELCOME TO WFC 13

The American Filtration and Separations Society will host the 13th World Filtration Congress (WFC 13), September 20 - 24, 2021 at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel in San Diego, CA, USA.  We cordially invite you to participate in the congress which is held once every four years rotating among member countries of INDEFI (International Delegation on Filtration), Austria, Australia, China, Chinese Taipei, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Japan, Korea, Nordics, UK and USA.  WFC 13 will have both an exhibition and technical program on filtration and separation.  The purpose of WFC is to foster a forum for scientists, engineers, academia and professionals throughout the world working on F & S to meet and share the latest advances and technologies.

The activities of WFC 13 will span a full week. The week will begin with a selection of short courses conducted on a variety of F&S topics. Short courses are 4 hours in duration and are instructed by leading experts in the field. The following 3-1/2 day technical program will consist of more than 300 oral presentations, student and industry posters, and numerous invited plenary and keynote presentations devoted equally to solid-liquid, solid-gas, and membrane separations, respectively. The Exhibition provides an excellent opportunity to showcase the state-of-the-art technology in F&S. The afternoon of the last day will be reserved for a visit to the Carlsbad Desalination Plant and the filtration plant in Sea World, San Diego. There will be plenty of occasions to network and meet with experts and people around the world working on F&S. Do not miss this important event which is held once in every four years! See you in San Diego in September 2021.
