As common physical phenomena in porous media, capillarity behaviors exist in many engineering applications and natural science fields. The experimental, theoretical and numerical research on capillarity in porous media has lasted for more than a century, and the research results have been widely used in various fields, such as the development of conventional and unconventional resources. However, although the research has made great progress, the complex imbibition mechanism poses new challenges to us. The 1st National Conference on Imbibition Theory and Application in Porous Media was held in Beijing from April 22 to 24, 2023, to gather researchers who are interested in imbibition research, exchange the latest progress and achievements in the field of imbibition in porous media, and discuss research hotspots and difficulties.
