The aim of conference is to provide a forum for researchers in academia and industry to share and discuss their cutting edge results on the use of ionic liquids in separation applications. This meeting will build on the momentum from the first and second ILSEPT meetings held in 2011 and 2014 respectively. The scientific program will offer plenary lectures, submitted oral presentations and poster sessions. Outside the session lecture theatres, you will also find numerous exhibitors presenting their contributions. Abstracts for oral and poster presentations should be submitted by 15 July using the online abstract submission system, which contains the list of conference topics. An exhibition will run alongside the conference sessions. Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
