International Conference  «Ion Transport in Organic and Inorganic Membranes»

May 22-27, 2023

Annual International Conference is organized and held by the Membrane Institute, Kuban State University, and the Kurnakov Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry of the RAS jointly with the Russian membrane society and RAS Scientific Council on Electrochemistry.

The conference is dedicated to actual problems of membrane science and promotes the exchange of scientific and technical information between Russian and foreign specialists. Objectives of the Conference also include the formation and development of scientific links between the Russian and foreign scientific centers and schools, the coordination of research between scientific partners. Traditionally, the conference addresses fundamental and applied issues related to the synthesis, structure and properties of monopolar, bipolar and modified organic and inorganic ion exchange membranes; ion and water transport in membranes and membrane systems; interface phenomena; theoretical and experimental studies of the electro- and pressure driven processes of desalination, concentration, separation and purification of liquid mixtures, electromembrane synthesis, energy generation as well as hybrid membrane methods for the environmental protection.

Companies that manufacture membrane materials and use membrane technologies are invited to the Conference. Among them are OJSC "Plastpolymer", OJSC "Shchekinoazot", OJSC "Polymersintez", JSC "Kamenskvolokno", JSC Uralchem, OJSC Novosibirsk Chemical Concentrates Plant, LLC "Henkel-South", MEGA AS, Czech Republic, JSC Achema, Lithuania, MTB Technologies Sp. Z.o.o, Poland, Aquamarijn Micro Filtration BV, Netherlands, DECHEMA, Germany and others. This allows bridging the gap between fundamental science and practical solution of specific problems.

The conference program will include plenary (40 min. including questions) and key (30 min.) lectures, oral presentations (20 minutes, including questions) and poster presentations.

Since 2003, within the framework of the conference, a school on membrane electrochemistry has been held for wider involvement of young scientists. For that purpose, the conference program includes lectures on modern problems of membrane science, given by university professors and leading scientists from academic institutions and scientific centers in Russia and abroad. There are also three kinds of competitions for the youth.

Competition of young scientists working in the field of membranes and membrane technology is traditionally held within the framework of the conference. In this competition, young scientists (up to 35 years old) represent the results of their research to the Competition Commission in the form of oral presentations (20 min. including questions).

The assessment of the knowledge and creative potential of novice researchers (students, PhD students of the 1st and 2nd years) is carried out during the Russian YoungMemBrain (RYM) competition. These young researchers are given the opportunity to make a short presentation (5-7 min.), followed by questions of a jury on the report and related topics (+5 min.).

The third competition is that of the poster presentations of the young participants who did not take part in the competitions with oral presentations. 

The best young scientists and researchers are awarded diplomas and memorable gifts.

Round tables on the topics: "Membrane materials for alternative energy sources", "International cooperation in the field of membrane technology", "Water treatment using membrane technology", "Prospects of development of electromembrane technologies" with the participation of leading scientists from universities, academic institutions, as well as representatives from companies are held in the framework of conferences. Problems of High School in terms of the training of specialists in the field of membrane technologies are discussed within the framework of the round table "Membrane technologies in innovative and educational programs for training experts", where scientists from leading Russian and foreign scientific centers and schools are involved.
