The organizing committee invites you to participate in the 1st International conference on Separation Processes (ICSP 2017) which will be held from April 26th to 27th April at the Department of Chemical Engineering, COMSATS Institute of Information technology, Lahore, Pakistan.

ICSP-2017 will provide an international forum for the presentation of technological advances, latest research and policies in the fields of theoretical, experimental, and applied aspects of separation and purification processes. The conference will bring together leading researchers, engineers, scientists, scholars/students and policy makers in these sectors from around the world.
The Conference topics will be addressed through plenary, keynote presentations, invited papers, round table discussions with core sessions, exhibition, poster sessions, and cultural visit.
Papers submitted for the conference will be reviewed on the basis of an abstract of sufficient detail to permit reasonable evaluation.
