We welcome you to the International Porous and Powder Materials Symposium and Exhibition, PPM 2015. The foreword of the proceedings and the abstracts books of the previous symposium, PPM 2013 which was the first of its series, started with the following sentence: ‘Idea of organizing a symposium on porous and powder materials owes its germination to the curiosity about the “other side of the fence”.’ It was a very fitting and almost a prophetic statement because 700 participants from 50 countries hosted by PPM 2013 belonged to an incredibly wide spectrum of science and technology, who one way or another dealt with porous and powder materials. It was both a fascinating and engaging sight to have people from the cement industry sitting in the sessions related to Biological and Medical Aspects since they realized that a characterization technique used in this field may actually answer some questions in theirs. Do we not deal with the same basic questions when we truly try to understand a material no matter where it originates from or how it is being put into application?
