AFS Fall Conference 2019

September 26

The American Filtration & Separations Society (AFS) is a technical, educational, nonprofit organization which began in 1987, to provide a forum for exchange of information among engineers, scientists, and technologists in all areas of filtration and separations. The AFS has and continues to provide tremendous value by predicating its existence on the dissemination of information, education, and the encouragement of research. Membership is drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds, including end-users, marketing and distribution engineers, product designers, research scientists, raw material designers, company management, consultants, academia, and officials of government.

It is indeed our greatest pleasure that we invite you all to participate in the 2019 AFS Fall Conference, “Filtration in our Factories.” As most of you are aware, our second FiltCon was held in April of 2019, and was a great success. We are equally excited for this year’s fall conference which will be held on Thursday, September 26, 2019, in Cleveland, OH. Considering that the World Filtration Congress will take place less than six months later, the Society plans to use a simplified format to cover one full day. The format will include 2 – 3 plenary sessions, between 12 and 24 technical sessions, a student poster competition, and networking opportunities.  Wednesday, September 25th, will feature a selection of short courses.  Educational opportunities on these topics are difficult to find, especially with the level of expertise that you will receive through the AFS.  Leading experts from the filtration and separation industry are the course instructors.

Abstract submission is open now, with a deadline of Friday, June 21, 2019.  We urge you to be an active part of the conference by giving a technical presentation.

Please visit this website often for updated information.  If you have questions about the conference, please contact Deahna Cring, AFS Conference Manager at deahna@afssociety.org or Lyn Sholl, Executive Director at lyn@afssociety.org.  We look forward to your participation at the 2019 AFS Fall Conference, September 26, 2019, at the Westin in Downtown Cleveland, OH.
