The American Filtration & Separations Society is a technical, educational, nonprofit organization started in 1987 to provide a forum for exchange of information among engineers, scientists, and technologists in all areas of the fluid/separation field.  The AFS has predicated 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 gives us great pleasure to invite you to participate in the AFS Spring Conference, FiltCon 2018.  We will have an exciting new format to this conference and will take place April 23 – 25, 2018, at the Mystic Lake Conference Center in Prior Lake, MN  This conference will feature 6 plenary sessions, 32 technical sessions to include 4 presentations/session, an expo with booths, a student poster session and networking opportunities. Monday, April 23, 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 for this conference will open the week of September 18, 2017.  We urge you to be an active part of the conference by giving a technical presentation or showcasing your company with an exhibit booth. Students who submit for either a poster or oral/poster presentation are given a free conference registration and will enter into the student poster competition to win cash prizes.

Please visit this website often for updated information.  If you have questions about the conference, please contact Deahna Cring, AFS Conference Coordinator at Deahna@afssociety.org or Lyn Sholl, Executive Director at lyn@afssociety.org.  We look forward to your participation at FiltCon 2018, April 23 – 25, 2018, at the Mystic Lake Conference Center in Prior Lake, MN
