Pr. François-Xavier PERRIN is graduated in Chemistry from the University of Marseille. He obtained his PhD from the University of Besançon (France) working on the electropolymerization of phenol derivatives and heterocyclic compounds. In 1998, he joined the MAPIEM (Materiaux Polymères Interfaces Environnement Marin) Laboratory. His research activities are focused on two fields : first, the weathering of organic and composite materials and the adequacy between artificial and natural ageing tests and second, the protection of metals by environmentally safe coatings. He contributed to fundamental and applied research with the development of new hybrid and nanocomposite materials by either bottom-up or top-down approaches.
He notably published several papers on the formation of clay or nanosilica– polymer hybrid materials by a controlled modification at a molecular level of the clay material (kaolin or montmorillonite). More recently, he developed new anticorrosive pigments based on nanocarbon and conductive polymers. Dr. Perrin is currently the author or co-author of 65 publications and 3 international Patent Claims.

Anthony Szymczyk received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry in 1999 at the University of Franche-Comté (France). He is currently Full Professor of the University of Rennes 1 where he teaches Thermodynamics and Membrane processes.
Prof. Szymczyk's research lies at the interface of chemical engineering, chemistry of materials and physics of condensed matter. His main research activities focus on the modeling and simulation of membrane separations for desalination and water purification, and on the physico-chemical characterization of membrane materials with applications in functionalization, fouling, ageing... He published about 130 scientific papers and book chapters on these topics. In 2013 he was the recipient of the IUPAC distinguished Award for Novel Materials and their Synthesis for his work on ion transport through nanoporous membranes. He was a member of the council of the European Membrane Society (2011-2014) and he served as Vice-President in 2013 and 2014.

Prof. Djafer BENACHOUR
After graduation from the National Polytechnic School of Algiers with an Engineering degree in Petrochemistry/Polymers in June 1976, Prof. Djafer BENACHOUR went to the USA for postgraduate studies. He attended an intensive program of English language at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge (September 1976-June 1977), then moved to Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland,Ohio, (August 1977) where he obtained a Master of Science (May 1980) and a Ph.D. (August 1982) degrees from the department of “Macromolecular Science”.
In October 1982, he joined the University of SETIF (ALGERIA) where he contributed to the opening of three programs: an “Engineering degree” in Polymer Engineering (January 1983). then a “Magister” degree in Macromolecular Science (September 1985), followed by a “Ph.D. program” in Macromolecular Science and Engineering (September 1990). Currently, he is a full time professor of Polymer Science and Engineering at Ferhat ABBAS SETIF1University (Algeria). He was Rector (President) of this university from October 1991 until August 2000. Prof. BENACHOUR has been chairing a research laboratory on “Multiphase Polymeric Materials” (LMPMP) since July 2000. He was vice-president of the Algerian Chemical Society for 15 years. Prof. BENACHOUR has been involved in chemistry education at different institutional levels for the past 36 years. He was a member of several panels on Chemistry/Chemical Engineering curricula development and updating, both at national and international levels. He supervised 32 Master/Magister and 28 Ph.D. theses over the last 26 years. He is the author/co-author of 85 international scientific publications.
In September 2005, he became a member of the “Committee on Ethics and Deontology” of Ferhat ABBAS SETIF1 University, and was elected as Chair of such a committee in May 2015.
