The aim of this DICP Symposium (No.38) is to promote the research and progress in the area of inorganic membranes, especially the new concepts on chemical compositions, structures, preparation methods, characterization techniques, as well as new membrane processes and applications. We strongly believe that all the participants will have a great opportunity to make beneficial contacts and exchange ideas. The program will include about 11 invited lectures given by distinguished researchers. A wide range of topics including：
Ionic transport membranes,
Catalytic membrane reactors,
Membrane processes and applications.
