The Membrane Society of Australasia (MSA) was founded in 2009 with the goal of bringing together key academics, industrial professionals, and emerging membranologists to further membrane science and technology within Australasia. One of the missions of the MSA is to foster and strengthen the connection between academic and industry professionals in the membrane field. To help bridge this gap, the MSA will be holding a combined Annual General Meeting and Conference on 23-24 November 2020.

Due to the uncertainty caused by COVID-19, MSA and the Chairs have taken the decision to change the format of the MSA Annual Meeting 2020 to a fully online conference. As the meeting is now online, we have waived the registration fees for everyone. More details can be found at the registration page.

To present your research to the membrane community, kindly submit your abstract before 30 September 2020 by clicking the link below. We look forward to welcoming you to MSA Annual Meeting 2020. If you have any queries concerning your participation please contact us at
