Interpore Norway 4th National Workshop

Interpore Norway is providing a platform for the Norwegian porous media researchers/scientists to come together and exchange ideas. For this reason, Interpore Norway arranges an annual Workshop for all that are interested in porous media research and technology.

Sist oppdatert: Oct 19, 2021

The 4th Annual Interpore Norway workshop will be a physical event held in Bergen (location details are forthcoming). The program consists of technical talks from invited speakers from around Norway and abroad who represent a broad spectrum of porous media research. Each talk will be followed by a Q&A session.

The workshop is free of charge and open to all.

The Organiser

The International Society for Porous Media (InterPore) is a non-profit-making independent scientific organization established in 2008. It aims to advance and disseminate knowledge for the understanding, description, and modeling of natural and industrial porous media systems. The Norwegian Chapter of Interpore, Interpore Norway, was established in 2016 at a kick-off meeting in Bergen.

Porous media are encountered in many natural and industrial systems, such as soils, aquifers, oil and gas reservoirs, biological tissues and plants, but also fuel cells, concrete, textiles, polymer composites, and in-tissue drug delivery, to name a few. Many of these porous systems are extremely complex.

InterPore acts as a platform for researchers active in modelling flow and transport in porous media. Flow and transports of fluids also coupled with temperature, deformation, and chemical/biological processes.
