The Workshop will provide an opportunity to review and discuss the state-of-the-art approaches to characterize porous materials of different origin. Lectures by recognized leaders in porous materials science will cover both theoretical principles and methodology of modern experimental techniques. Oral presentations and poster sessions will complement invited and keynote lectures. Proceedings will be published as a special volume of Microporous and Mesoporous Materials journal.


• Molecular Thermodynamics of Fluids in Pores • Adsorption and Capillary Phenomena • Intermolecular Interactions in Porous Confinements • Computer Simulations and Density Functional Theory • Energetic Heterogeneity of Surfaces • Fractal Characterization of Disordered Structures • Adsorption Porosimetry of Micro and Mesoporous Solids • Mercury Porosimetry and Liquid Intrusion Techniques • Thermoporometry and Calorimetry • Chromatographic Characterization of Porous Materials • High Resolution Microscopy and Image Analysis • Scattering Techniques for Pore Structure Analysis • Relations Between Structural, Transport, and Functional Properties

Special sessions will focus on:

• Novel Nanoporous Materials and Adsorption Processes for Industrial Applications • Computational Design and Screening of Novel Adsorbents • Modeling and Characterization of Hierarchical Nanostructured Materials • Adsorption Induced Deformation and Phase Transformations of Porous Frameworks • In-situ Monitoring of Adsorption and Fluid Flow in Porous Structures • Adsorption and Characterization of Geosorbents: Shale, Coal, Soil. • Adsorption of Polymers, Proteins, and Nanoparticles on Porous Substrates

Submission of CPM-8 manuscripts to the Special Issue of Microporous and Mesoporous Materials is open!


The submission website is now open at the Elsevier Editorial System and ready for article submission. It is located at: https://ees.elsevier.com/micmat/. To ensure that all manuscripts are correctly identified for inclusion into the special issue you are editing, it is important that authors select “SI: CPM-8 proceedings” when reaching the “Article Type” step in the submission process. Note that we intend to publish the full scale concise articles of the highest quality; abbreviated versions will not be considered. Please strictly follow the guidelines for manuscript preparation and submission posted on the journal website at:https://www.elsevier.com/journals/microporous-and-mesoporous-materials/1387-1811/guide-for-authors

The deadline for manuscript submission is May 31, 2018. Our plan is to complete peer-review over the summer and to publish the special issue in October 2018.

CPM-8 Program is now available!


We are extremely delighted to announce that we will have a world-class program of scientific presentations; The program is composed of 58 podium talks, including keynote and invited lectures, which in addition to the 91 poster presentations embraces a wide spectrum of micro- and mesoporous materials, characterization techniques, and theoretical/computational methods related to the characterization of porous materials. With the authors representing 29 countries, CPM-8 is going to become one of the largest international events in porous materials in 2018!

Please visit the program page for updated versions.
