The International Symposium on Mixing in Industrial Processes (ISMIP) is a conference held on a triennial basis to bring together researchers from academia and industry from across the world engaged in mixing research.

This symposium is unique in its blend of academic and industrial interest within the mixing community.  We welcome contributions from all areas of the fluid mixing field but wish to highlight the following topic areas.

  • Mixing of fluids with complex rheology - single or multiphase fluids from dilute suspensions to slurries, formulated liquid     products;
  • Mixing for manufacturability – from laboratory to process scale in batch and continuous processes;
  • Mixing within biological processes – effects of local conditions on cells and bioreactor performance;
  • Mixing in microfluidic systems – chemical and bio-processing driven by microscale mixing;
  • Simulations – different computational techniques used for mixing processes such as CFD, DEM, FEM etc.

The International Symposium on Mixing in Industrial Processes (ISMIP) brings together the global mixing community across academia, industry and research institutions to share and discuss the most recent developments in research and in processing.  The symposium has been held all around the world, from the inaugural event in Quebec City in Canada in 1995, to include Mexico, Japan, France, Spain, Canada, China and Australia.

The next symposium will be held on 25-28 June 2017 in Birmingham, UK, a city which was at the forefront of the industrial revolution in the 18th Century; by 1791 it was hailed as the “first manufacturing town in the world”.  Today, the city is a major international commercial centre; its metropolitan economy is the second largest in the United Kingdom and its six universities make it the largest centre of higher education in the country outside London, of which the largest is the University of Birmingham.
