EDEM Presentations Make a Big Impact at WCPT6 2010

Researchers from around the world presented the results of research deploying EDEM to advance understanding in particle technology in a wide range of application areas at the World Congress of Particle Technology 2010, held in April in Nuremberg, Germany. The Technical sessions covered 13 program areas, including specific Sessions for DEM Modeling and Simulation.

About the World Congress of Particle Technology 2010 (WCPT6)
– April 26-29

A scientific congress supported by PARTEC, this is one of the largest particle technology related events in Europe. The gathering of leading experts in particle technology alongside the PowTech and TechnoPharm exhibitions provides a great opportunity for sharing of knowledge and discussion of the latest advances in both pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical-related fields. Conference proceedings are available for purchase from the sponsor.
