Why ASASS 2023?

The first Australian Symposium on Advances in Separation Science (ASASS I) was held in December 2008 at the University of Tasmania, Hobart, the state capital of the beautiful Island of Tasmania, Australia. The inaugural symposium, then known as the ACROSS Symposium on Advances in Separation Sciences, was chaired by Prof. Paul Haddad and timed to mark the 60th birthday of its inaugural Chair. This first symposium was a great success, attracting more than 150 separation scientists from over 18 countries. The symposium was held over three days, delivering lively discussion and cutting-edge science, all within a beautiful and stimulating environment.


ASASS II was held from Nov 29 to Dec 2, 2016, and once again held in Hobart, on this occasion on the historic waterfront, opposite the beautiful and world-famous Salamanca Place. The symposium, chaired by Prof. Brett Paull, opened its doors to an international delegation of separation scientists, both young and old, for three days of great science and social interaction. With close to 140 delegates, spanning local Australian based PhD students to internationally renowned experts, together originating from over 25 different countries, the meeting was an exciting mix of youth and experience, making for a hugely educational, productive and entertaining experience for all.

After a further hiatus of 6 years, exacerbated most recently by Covid-19, we are once again delighted to be able to announce the call for delegates and supporters of ASASS III. The time has come for the separation science community to come together and once again enjoy the benefits of our vibrant and popular symposium series. Keeping with emerging tradition, we will once more host ASASS in Hobart, Tasmania, as a location easily reached nationally, and enthusiastically supported internationally. We will also continue the ambitions of the symposium to date, to include an exciting variety of separation science, presented from across the entire separation science community, from early career researchers and research students, to industry-based scientists, to internationally renowned leaders. The symposium has at its core a commitment to provide a unique and inspirational experience, with value-for money and a vibrant and exciting social program guaranteed.
