Filtration and Separation Symposium in Collaboration with INCHEM Tokyo 2003
Tokyo, Japan,
November 5-6, 2003

The Filtration Society Japan Association (abbr. FSJA; President Emeritus: Mompei Shirato, President: Eiji Iritani, Director of Secretariat: Yasuhito Mukai) has collaborated with INCHEM TOKYO (November 4-7, 2003 at Tokyo Big Sight, Tokyo, Japan) in organizing the Filtration and Separation Symposium with the cosponsors, the Society of Chemical Engineers, Japan (SCEJ), the Solid-Liquid Separation Working Party and Nagoya University Nature COE. The symposium was held on November 5-6, 2003 at Time 24 bld. near Tokyo Big Sight.

The symposium published 32 papers including two keynote speeches shown below, and all the papers were presented orally.
Keynote Speech 1: Centrifugal Classification of Fine-Particle Suspension (Chairman of the 9th World Filtration Congress; Bird Machine Co., USA) Wallace Leung
Keynote Speech 2: Wet-Type Classification & Separation Technology and the Example Introduction (Makino Corp.) Nobuyoshi Asai

The presented papers ranged over a variety of fields of filtration and separation technologies, such as fundamentals; filter media; liquid filtration; expression and dewatering; centrifugation; membrane filtration; pre- and post treatment; bioindustries and food industry; chemical, metallurgical, textile industry, etc.; treatment of drinking water, waste water and sludge; new equipment and novel techniques.

To our regret, we couldn't collect enough papers from abroad under the influence of various international circumstances, and as a result the symposium organizing committee made the decision that the symposium would be composed of Japanese presenters. Thus, unlike previous symposium in 2001, the symposium has been held only in Japanese language except Keynote Speech 1. In Keynote Speech 1, Dr. Leung spoke in English as slowly as possible for Japanese audiences.

During the first day (November 5), Keynote Speech 1 and 15 oral presentations were delivered, while the second day (November 6) was devoted to Keynote Speech 2 and 15 oral presentations. The symposium attracted about 100 participants and resulted in a great success.
