Particle Society of Minnesota Forms

The Particle Society of Minnesota is being formed in association with the Center for Interfacial Engineering at the University of Minnesota.

ST. PAUL, Minn. — The Particle Society of Minnesota, an organization with the mission to promote an interdisciplinary approach to particle science, is being formed in association with the Center for Interfacial Engineering at the University of Minnesota; the Engineering Research Center at the University of Florida, Gainesville; the Particle Division of the Adhesion Society; the Particle Technology Forum of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers; and the Adhesives and Sealants Council.

The Society will involve academic and industrial particle-science professionals in continuing education in this area utilizing expertise from the fields of mechanical and chemical engineering, materials science, chemistry, and physics. This organization will also bring particle-science professionals together to form networks that will support professional and career growth.

Anyone who works with problems involving particle-size reduction, classification and measurement may be interested in joining the Society. Particle encapsulation, surface treatment, fluidization, dispersion, agglomeration, transport and bulk measurement are also subjects of interest.

The Society’s kick-off meeting will be held October 25, 1999, at the St. Paul East Holiday Inn, St. Paul, Minn. For information on the meeting, or on becoming a member, contact Dr. James Marty at 651-730-4293, fax 651-236-3540, or e-mail
