The focus of this one-day workshop is presenting novel theoretical approaches to model membrane processes. We aim to discuss theoretical approaches that focus on the microscopic level, modeling the membrane-solution interface, the membrane structure, and the single compartment.

This symposium is driven by a renewed interest in the physics-based modeling of membrane processes, and the need for understanding the laws that all membrane processes have in common at the fundamental level. Different scales of microscopic models, empirical models and phenomenological approaches all have their various applications. However, it is imperative to build bridges between these levels of modeling.

The workshop will focus on all the membrane processes that have pressure, electrical, and osmotic effects as driving force. These include, but are not limited to: microfiltration (MF), nanofiltration (NF), electrodialysis (ED), reverse electrodialysis (RED), reverse osmosis (RO), forward osmosis (FO), and membrane capacitive deionization (MCDI).
