Invitation to PBM 2018


PBM 2018 -  The 6th International Conference on Population Balance Modelling, will be held in Ghent, Belgium from 7 - 9 May 2018. Download the first call below for all the necessary information!


On behalf of the organizers, we would like to warmly invite you to attend the 6th International Conference on Population Balance Modelling (PBM2018) to be held in Ghent, Belgium during 7 – 9 May 2018. This conference aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners with diverse backgrounds to allow exchange of ideas across various sub-fields that use population balances, and to provide opportunities for researchers to identify new domains to expand into and new tools to use.

Ghent University and DTU are joining forces to make PBM 2018 an open platform to share population balance model research with a high scientific quality, interesting applications and new significant developments. To achieve all this, we are providing flexible registration fees and incentives for young researchers, aiming for an attractive scientific program, world-wide participation and high industrial participation.

We hope you are encouraged and look forward to hosting you at PBM2018.
