Prof. Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern appointed as Fellow of the International Adsorption Society
In honour of the significant contributions he has made to the adsorption science community
The International Adsorption Society (IAS) has appointed Prof. Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern, director at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems Magdeburg, as IAS Fellow. This appointment is “a reflection of the significant contributions he has made to our adsorption science community and for his longtime leadership in the IAS and for our FOA meetings.”, says the IAS Board of Directors.
The International Adsorption Society has established the membership grade of IAS Fellow to recognize members of the IAS who have been members of the IAS for a minimum of ten years, who have demonstrated significant accomplishments in, and contributions to, the profession and whoa have distinguished themselves with service to the IAS.
The IAS society brings together researchers from throughout the world working in industry, academia and government to advance the field of adsorption in areas ranging from the fundamental molecular thermodynamics of adsorption phenomena to the design of industrial separations processes to the applications of adsorption in nanotechnology. Every three years IAS organizes the International Conference on the Fundamentals of Adsorption (FOA), the leading conference in the field.
Prof. Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern acquired the 2016 European conference to take place in Germany. He has been the Conference Chair of the successful 12th FOA in May/June 2016 in Friedrichshafen / Lake Constance (Bodensee) with more than 320 participants from 32 countries.
