    Welcome to AMS 

    Aseanian Membrane Society (AMS) was founded in 2002 to advance and benefit membrane science and technology in the regions of “Asian” and “Oceanian”. Here at AMS, we are endeavored to and AMS aims to serve membranologists in these regions and to promote and connect with membrane organizations around the world. As shown in our website, AMS is currently composed of 8 member societies, and we sincerely welcome more societies in the regions to join. Please also refer to the “History of AMS”, which contains the slides of Professor Nakao’s presentation from the 10th AMS Conference (Nara, Japan, 2016).

    AMS organizes an annual AMS Conference, except for the years when the International Congress on Membranes & Membrane Processes (ICOM) is held, which takes place every three years. The most recent AMS Conference (AMS 12) took place in in Jeju, Korea in 2019, and attracted hundreds of participants from the member societies and across many other related fields.

    In 2020 we do not have AMS Conference as it is an “ICOM year”. The next AMS Conference (AMS 13) will be hosted by the Membrane Society of Singapore in Singapore in 2021. We look forward to seeing all of you in Singapore, the Garden City.
