The 2nd Biannual Meeting of the German National Chapter of InterPore aims to unite people from diverse disciplines who study and work with porous media. The goal of the annual conference is to bring people together so that they can exchange ideas and be made aware of each other's interests and research activities. 

Meeting canceled !

Unfortunately we have to cancel the 2nd Biannual Meeting of the German Chapter of InterPore. Since only a small number of abstracts were submitted, it was decided to cancel the meeting. It is suspected that one reason might be, that many subscribers were lost, while adapting the InterPore Newsletter distribution to the new GDPR regulations.

The organizing team thanks everyone, who has submitted an abstract and/or registered for the event for their interest and apologizes for the inconvenience! We hope to see you at the next Annual Meeting of InterPore in Valencia, May 6-10, 2019.
