Article Type:Editorial


Natural, artificial, and biological porous media can be seen everywhere in our daily lives. Transport phenomena in porous media, such as flow, diffusion, reaction, adsorption and deformation, are encountered in a wide variety of practical applications and scientific interests over widely disparate length scales, from molecular, to pore, core, and field scales. However, determination of transport properties in porous media remains a challenging issue. During the 12th Annual Meeting of the International Society for Porous Media (InterPore), held online from August 31-September 4, 2020, advances on porous media science and engineering in very broad areas were presented. The meeting was attended by more than 750 participants from across the globe, and a significant milestone was achieved in the history of InterPore conferences due to its online interactive platform. Participants could access the pre-recorded talks, leave comments and questions, chat with each other, one week before the conference. Then, all the feedback related to a talk was discussed in the presence of the author during several Q&A sessions. Invited and Keynote talks were live, and were also recorded. Each Q&A session was moderated by two experts, who first reviewed the 8 contributions of their session and then summarized the questions for each talk. The author could further elaborate their work and answer the questions.

Keywords:Porous media, transport phenomena, multi-scale, modeling.
