Dutch InterPore Meeting 9 October 2013

The Netherlands Chapter of InterPore (International Society for Porous Media, www.interpore.org) is organizing its third mini-symposium on experimental, theoretical, and computational aspects of porous media research, carried out in the Netherlands. Scientists working in the Netherlands in different fields of porous media research, are invited to share their knowledge and expertise. In this mini-symposium, there will be presentations and posters on fundamental and applied aspects of porous media including chemical, industrial, and technological applications.
