On behalf of the Membrane Society of Australasia (MSA), it is our pleasure to invite you to the 9th International Membrane Science and Technology Conference to be held from the 5th – 8th December 2016 at the Adelaide Convention Centre, South Australia.

The themes for the 9th IMSTEC will cover all areas of inorganic membranes, polymeric membranes, membrane science, membrane fabrication and modification, and membrane applications in a broad variety of areas such as filtration, distillation, desalination and biological separations. Included will be engineering and technologies from the latest innovations in synthesis, characterisation, processing and modeling to the advanced applications of membranes in health, energy and sustainability as well as
future materials and devices.

As in past years IMSTEC will provide an opportunity for national and international networking through an exciting forum of both formal presentations as well as enhancement of research in order to contribute towards the development of frontier membrane science. Since running in Sydney for many years, and then in Melbourne in 2013 it is now our pleasure to host IMSTEC in Adelaide and continue its reputation as a conference with an outstanding scientific programme and excellent opportunities to meet old friends and make new academic/industry collaborations. The program will provide ample opportunities for informal discussions and networking throughout the conference.

We hope you enjoy the conference, are inspired by new ideas and make new friends. We encourage you to attend what promises to be another stimulating
membrane forum in 2016.
