Different actions have been taken to contribute to a “Women friendly conference”.

– One female plenary speaker;
– A dedicated poster prize (Women in drying research);
– The funding back of the registration fee of 4 to 5 female PhD students/postdocs on the basis of an essay about “The place of woman in research”.
– 9 co-chairing of sessions by women


Guidelines for presenters:
15 minutes oral presentation + 5 minutes for question.

The main scope of the Conference is to provide a scientific program of cutting-edge research in drying field, development and applications in drying and dewatering technologies. Leading researchers from Europe and all around the globe are expected. A special session will be dedicated to industrial issues and case studies in order to highlight or to identify intersections between research in academia and industrial needs.

Thanks a lot to the local Organizing Committee, and the Scientific Committee, mainly composed of WPD members, who serve also in reviewing the submitted abstracts and papers.

Beside the Conference Proceedings it is planned to publish the selected papers in Drying Technology Journal.

According to the intention of the WPD our aims were to keep the registration fee as low as possible and offering a discounted fee to PhD students.
