The 7th International Conference on Population Balance Modelling (PBM 2022) aims to bring together researchers from academia and industry to exchange about the recent progresses in the various fields employing population balances.

This series of International Conferences on Population Balance Modelling was initiated in 2000, to respond to the increasing demand to meet and exchange about population balance fundamentals, new developments and solution techniques, and applications in different fields. Six conferences took place, first at Kona (Hawaii, 2000), followed by Valencia (Spain, 2004), Quebec (Canada, 2007), Berlin (Germany, 2010), Bangalore (India, 2013), and Ghent (Belgium, 2018). These conferences have stimulated the increasing interest to pursue its organisation. Due to the Covid-19 crisis, it could not be organised in 2021 and was postponed to 2022.

The conference covers the different application fields of population balances, including pharmaceutical and chemical processing industry, medical applications or biological systems. It aims to exchange about the elaboration of population balances in the different fields, recent solution and simulation strategies, adaptation to complex multivariate systems, integration in optimisation and control strategies, etc.

Selected contributions, among oral and poster presentations, will be offered the possibility to submit full-length papers in a special issue of Chemical Engineering Research and Design / Elsevier, dedicated to the conference. The papers will go through the regular peer-review process of the journal. The submission will be open from February to July 2022.
