IEX2020 - A Vision for the Future

8 July 2020 09:00 - 10 July 2020 17:00, Cambridge, United Kingdom


The SCI IEX Conference brings together an internationally recognised group of experts in the field of ion exchange and its associated uses, including water treatment, catalysis, chemical processing, hydrometallurgy and bioprocessing.

The Conference started in 1954 and has been held regularly at 4-year intervals since 1976. It is now established as one of the major international conferences of the ion exchange community, sharing its important role with the Japanese Association of Ion Exchange since 2004. Both events are assisted and supported by the independent International Committee for Ion Exchange.

An exhibition will run throughout the week, and poster presenters will display their work during the conference.

There will be plenty of networking opportunities throughout the week at various social events including a welcome reception and gala dinner.​

Final call for papers

Oral and poster papers will be presented on Wednesday 8 to Friday 10 July 2020. Papers are invited on all aspects of ion exchange.  Particular interest will be given to papers which illustrate the theme of the conference 'Ion Exchange - A Vision for the Future'. Authors wishing to present oral or poster papers should submit a 300 word abstract by 7 December 2019 to indicating whether they wish to be considered for an oral or poster presentation.
