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 email@example.com.
