Following its postponement in April 2020, organisers of the 13th World Filtration Congress (WFC13) have announced new dates for the Congress which will be 20–24 September 2021 in San Diego, California.

The event is hosted by the American Filtration and Separations Society (AFS) and it has been working to negotiate this new date in 2021 and discuss with the venue, the Hilton Bayfront, new procedures regarding sanitation and the limitations of a possible smaller space in case social distancing is still being enforced at the time of Congress.

AFS and WFC13 staff are working with the confirmed WFC13 speakers and exhibitors to re-confirm their availability. The content that was to be presented in April will be very similar to that which will be presented in September 2021. Speakers will have the opportunity to update abstracts in 2021 with the latest information and data.

Updates are currently being made to the WFC13 website. Organisers are encouraging all attendees, speakers and exhibitors to check the website regularly for the latest information.
