Filtech 2023: Call for Papers Opened

Filtech 2023: Call for Papers Opened
Communicating research results, discussing innovations: In the congress area of FILTECH 2023, the focus is on scientific exchange. The call for papers for the series of lectures at the world’s largest event for the filtration and separation of all types of media has now started. Interested parties can submit their paper proposal until August 31, 2022. When FILTECH 2023 opens its doors again in Cologne from February 14 to 16, 2023, the organizer is planning well over 200 presentations.

The innovative power in the field of filtration and separation is strong. Particularly in air filtration, fine dust values and gases that affect the climate, germs that are harmful to health, and other impacts are leading to ever new developments. But also for solids separation and solid-liquid separation there are always new developments with the striving for maximum efficiency and higher qualities. At FILTECH 2023, researchers can present their innovations to a professional audience: With more than 200 lectures planned in the congress area, the organizer again expects a wealth of impulses for research and manufacturing companies in the filtration and separation industry.

Scientific committee ensures a program of high quality

The combination of congress and trade fair makes FILTECH unique: visitors have the opportunity to experience the latest products and services from over 440 exhibitors live and can find out about current trends in research and development in the congress area. The high quality of the presentations is guaranteed by the FILTECH Scientific Committee, chaired by Dr. Harald Anlauf (KIT) and Prof. Eberhard Schmidt (Bergische Universität Wuppertal): Experts from international universities, research institutions and companies review the submitted contribution proposals and compile a program that guarantees valuable information from all areas of the industry.

The congress at FILTECH 2023 is divided into topics covering all relevant subjects. Seven thematic areas will be in focus:

  • Solid-Liquid-Separation
  • Solid-Gas-Separation
  • Filter Media
  • Testing; Instrumentation; Control
  • Simulation and Modelling
  • Product Related Processes
  • Membrane Processes

Application-oriented short courses provide information for technical personnel

In addition, the congress at FILTECH 2023 will be dedicated to current industry trends such as selective separation, micro process technology and nanofluidics, mist and droplet separation as well as biological waste gas treatment with biofilters. On February 13, 2023, already one day before the opening of the exhibition area, two focused 1-day courses will be held, which will also specifically address engineers, scientists, managers and other technical personnel who need applied knowledge on topics related to solid/liquid separation and fine dust separation.

The early call for papers also supports industry experts in planning their visit to the event: The FILTECH 2023 conference program, including short summaries of all abstracts, will be published early on the website. Using the integrated search function, visitors can easily find relevant topics, authors, content and affiliations.

The industry’s interest in personal exchange at trade fairs and congresses continues unabated. “At FILTECH 2022, more than 14,000 participants took the opportunity to experience the range of products and services offered by the 386 exhibitors and the information from 200 presentations,” reports Suzanne Abetz from organizer FILTECH Exhibitions Germany. “For the next FILTECH, we are already expecting an even higher turnout, both in the exhibition area and at the congress. In a dynamic environment, FILTECH proves once again that focused trade shows have a firm role as a regular industry exchange.”
