2015 International Forward Osmosis Summit (IFOS)
Forward Osmosis: Prospects and Challenges
19 - 20 November 2015

■ Background

Inspired by the natural osmotic process, ubiquitous to all living cells, forward osmosis (FO) is now emerging as alternative membrane technologies for desalination and water reuse. Discussing and sharing the latest progress and envisioning the future perspectives within the academia and industries is however vital for the progress of these novel technologies. IFOS has been therefore founded with the main aim to provide a specific forum and also aims to encourage more academia and industries on board to this field. The first IFOS 2014 was held at Shanghai on 19 July 2014 where about 120 participants from 8 countries attended the summit. Encouraged by the success of the first IFOS and the positive feedback the organizers received, the summit will be held every year.

■ Welcome to Jeju Island

Jeju Island, also known as the "Island of the Gods," is a popular vacation spot for Koreans and foreigners. It remains the top honeymoon destination for Korean newlyweds, and is also regarded as one of the top honeymoon destinations in the world. It is therefore fitting that the second IFOS is held in Jeju Island at the most beautiful city of Korea. International Desalination Workshop (IDW, will host the second IFOS in Nov 2015.
