Natural, artificial, and biological porous media can be seen everywhere in our daily lives. Transport phenomena in porous media, such as flow, diffusion, reaction, adsorption and deformation, are encountered in a wide variety of practical applications and scientific interests over widely disparate length scales, from molecular, to pore, core, and field scales. However, determination of transport properties in porous media remains a challenging issue. During the 12th Annual Meeting of the International Society for Porous Media (InterPore), held online from August 31-September 4, 2020, advances on porous media science and engineering in very broad areas were presented. The meeting was attended by more than 750 participants from across the globe, and a significant milestone was achieved in the history of InterPore conferences due to its online interactive platform. Participants could access the pre-recorded talks, leave comments and questions, chat with each other, one week before the conference. Then, all the feedback related to a talk was discussed in the presence of the author during several Q&A sessions. Invited and Keynote talks were live, and were also recorded. Each Q&A session was moderated by two experts, who first reviewed the 8 contributions of their session and then summarized the questions for each talk. The author could further elaborate their work and answer the questions.
