The International Workshop on Membrane in Kobe (iWMK) is an annual event hosted by the Center for Membrane and Film Technology, Kobe University (MaFTech center), with the aim at academic exchanges and discussions on today’s advanced membrane research and technology.

The iWMK2018 is a 2 day event and will be held at 2 campuses of Kobe University. On Nov 26 we have special invited lecture and student presentation session at Kobe University's Rokkodai campus. On Nov 27, 11 universities from 9 different countries will give presentations on their recent research achivements at Kobe University's Integrated Research Center. We believe the iWMK2018 will not only provide a wide spectrum of exchanges on today's membrane research, also a great learning opportunity for students as well as a diverse networking place for academia and industry.

At iWMK2018, we are greatly honored to host 11 overseas universities and institutes as the follows.

  • Chung Yuan University (Taiwan)
  • Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Hong Kong)
  • Institut Européen des Membranes (France)
  • Nanjing Tech University (China)
  • Tianjin Polytechnic University (China)
  • Tsinghua University (China)
  • Universiti Teknologi of Malaysia (Malaysia)
  • University of Technology Sydney (Australia)
  • Victoria University (Australia)
  • Zhejiang University (China)
  • Kobe University (Japan)
