Dear ICOM 2011 participants, dear colleagues and friends,
On behalf of the Membrane Technology Group of the University of Twente, we would like to sincerely thank all ICOM 2011 participants for making this ICOM a great success! Over 1000 participants joined ICOM. Many of you provided an oral or a poster presentation, participated as a member of the scientific committee of ICOM 2011, act as chair or judge and actively participated in scientific discussions and informal get-togethers.
Through this website we would like to give you a glimpse of ICOM 2011. We hope it will refresh your memories and make you remember ICOM 2011.
Once more, thank you very much for a wonderful ICOM 2011!

This years ICOM 2011 was hosted by the Membrane Technology Group of the University of Twente and organized in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, from July 23 until July 29, 2011. ICOM, the International Congress on Membranes and Membrane Processes, is the world's largest conference on fundamental and applied membrane science technology. It offers a platform for extensive exchange of ideas, thoughts and discussions on membranes and membrane processes.
The social program of ICOM 2011 included a welcome reception on Sunday evening, two poster sessions and a boat tour through the canals of Amsterdam combined with a conference banquet at the ‘Beurs van Berlage’, the former stock exchange building.
The European Membrane Society (EMS) provided 4 oral and 4 poster prizes of € 500 each and the Membrane Society of Australasia provided 2 oral and 4 poster prizes of AUS$ 500 each for young researchers in the field of membrane science and technology. The winners of the awards are:
David Grzenia Colorado State University USA
Marlon Tijink University of Twente The Netherlands
Blaine Carter University of Colorado USA
Sebastian Schwark Universität Duisburg-Essen Germany
Bahar Basak Peksen Ozer Yzmyr Institue of Technology Turkey
Kotaku Yuasa Kobe University Japan

Prior to ICOM, we organized Network Young Membranes (NYM13) in Enschede, The Netherlands from July 21 until July 23, 2011. NYM aims at exchanging ideas on recent scientific developments in the field of membrane science and technology between young researchers from all over the world. It provides an excellent platform for young scientists to have fruitful discussions and pursue new ideas.
As part of the technical program for ICOM 2011, an international group of membrane experts conducted four 1-day workshops in key membrane technological areas:
- Hydrodynamics and module design
Prof. Thomas Melin, RWTH Aachen, Germany
- Membrane bioreactors
Prof. TorOve Leiknes, NTNU, Trondheim, Norway
Dr. Pierre Aimar, Université de Toulouse, Toulouse, France
- Membrane gas separation for industrial flue gases
Ir. Paul Raats, KEMA Nederland B.V., Arnhem, The Netherlands
We are very grateful to our sponsors and we highly appreciate their financial support. Without that, ICOM 2011 would not have been possible.
