About Cryspom

The Biannual International workshop Crystallization in Porous Media CRYSPOM focuses on fundamental research of crystallization in porous materials.  It unites researchers from geoengineering, geology, physics, chemistry, mechanics and conservation interested in crystal nucleation, growth and transport in porous media and its related consequences. 

 The idea is to bring together leading researchers and Ph.D. students to provide for a constructive and open dialogue. Also, it seeks to incite collaborations between theorists, modelists and experimentalists on an international level. 

CRYSPOM results from a long-standing tradition. The workshop was founded by Prof. Noushine Shahidzadeh in 2008 in Paris, and subsequently took place in Brienz (Switzerland, 2010), Troia (Portugal, 2012), Amsterdam (The Netherlands, 2014), Toulouse (France, 2016) and Hamburg (Germany, 2018). The seventh in the series will be held in Pau (France), 3-5 June 2020.

The topics includes, but are not limited to

- Fundamentals of crystallization in porous or confined media

- Coupled problems including crystallization

- Crystallization in the built environment

- Crystallization and rock transformation in nature 

- Crystallization of salt and gas hydrates
