Message from the Organizing Secretary

Dr. S. S. Mallick

Overwhelming response and support of the particle technology community for the inaugural PGBSIA 2013 have inspired us to organize PGBSIA 2016 – the 2nd International Conference on Powder, Granule and Bulk Solids: Innovations and Applications (PGBSIA 2016) in Jaipur (Rajasthan), India from December 1 to 3, 2016. This conference aims to integrate the scientific and industry communities. Papers will be peer-reviewed (with possible journal publications). I am thankful to a large number of prolific international experts who have agreed to deliver Keynote Lectures at the conference. I would also like to thank the Editor of the International Journal Particulate Science and Technology (Taylor & Francis) to accept our proposal to have a special issue for PGBSIA 2016. There will be several practical/industry oriented workshops on specific themes.

I invite all of you (academician/researchers/industry professionals/students/sponsors and exhibitors) working in different areas of particle and bulk solids technologies to participate and attend the event and make it a grand success. As a venue, the Royal city of Jaipur provides a unique blend of combining academics/ business/ tourism/ connectivity/ history/ culture/ weather. PGBSIA has grown in this part of the world as perhaps the most comprehensive technical forum for sharing the latest outcomes of research and developments to industrial applications in the area of particle and bulk solids technologies. Considering the timing and place of the event (growing economy), PGBSIA 2016 provides unique opportunities for academic, research and business collaborations.

On behalf of the organizing committee, I look forward to welcome you in Jaipur, India in December 2016 for this exciting event.
