Daniel Miller was awarded the graduate level First Prize for North American College Student Technical Writing Competition

Daniel Miller wins North American College Student Technical Writing Competition

Congratulations to Dan Miller who was awarded the graduate level First Prize in the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) 2012 North American College Student Technical Writing Competition sponsored by the Polymer Modifiers and Additives (PMAD) Division. The PMAD Challenge is a technical writing competition involving the critical review of one of three selected journal articles and the development of a research proposal based upon the review of the selected paper. Submissions are reviewed and judged by a team of university professors and plastics industry technical professionals. Prizes are awarded to both undergraduate and graduate student winners of the competition who demonstrate excellence in technical writing and scientific creativity. As the First Prize winner, Dan will be invited to attend the SPE’s annual ANTEC meeting in Orlando, FL on April 2-4, 2012, where he will be recognized at the Awards Ceremony.

Success in organizing 2008 International Congress on Membranes and Membrane Processes (ICOM 2008)

2008 International Congress on Membranes and Membrane Processes (ICOM 2008)

It is a great pleasure to invite you to the 2008 International Congress on Membranes and Membrane Processes (ICOM 2008). ICOM is the world’s most profound meeting for exchange of the most important aspects in fundamental and applied membrane science and engineering.

We believe that Hawaii is a perfect location for this event because it captures the cultures from the East and the West. ICOM 2008 will be a very special meeting in membrane science history.

With best wishes,

Ingo Pinnau, Chair, ICOM 2008
Benny Freeman & Yoram Cohen, Co-Chairs, ICOM 2008
