Catal­y­sis Soci­ety of Japan will orga­nize this meet­ing as a con­tin­u­a­tion of TOCAT (1990), TOCAT2 (1994), TOCAT3 (1998), TOCAT4 (2002), TOCAT5 (2006) and TOCAT6/APCAT5 (2010). The past six TOCAT con­fer­ences have earned a good rep­u­ta­tion as a new series of inter­na­tion­al con­fer­ences on catal­y­sis that has sig­nif­i­cant­ly filled the gap between research and tech­nol­o­gy in catal­y­sis.
 
Scope
Stim­u­lat­ing clos­er ties between acad­e­mia and indus­try and encour­ag­ing young researchers in the field of catal­y­sis are the cen­tral con­cept of this con­fer­ence. This con­fer­ence sould great­ly con­tribute to exchang­ing new ideas and tech­nolo­gies and pro­mot­ing devel­op­ments of new out­stand­ing cat­a­lysts and sys­tems under the scope that catal­y­sis is a high­ly and eager­ly demand­ed tech­nol­o­gy in indus­tries and for sus­tain­able soci­ety and dri­ves inno­va­tion in many oth­er fields.

Papers on the fol­low­ing top­ics are wel­come.

Application Deadline

Appli­ca­tions for this meet­ing must be sub­mit­ted by May 25, 2014. Please apply ear­ly, as some meet­ings become over­sub­scribed (full) before this dead­line. If the meet­ing is over­sub­scribed, it will be stat­ed here. Note: Appli­ca­tions for over­sub­scribed meet­ings will only be con­sid­ered by the Con­fer­ence Chair if more seats become avail­able due to can­cel­la­tions.

Meeting Description

A meet­ing descrip­tion is cur­rent­ly being devel­oped by the Con­fer­ence Chair and will be avail­able by Sep­tem­ber 3, 2013. Please check back for updates.

Preliminary Program

A list of pre­lim­i­nary ses­sion top­ics and speak­ers is cur­rent­ly being devel­oped by the Con­fer­ence Chair and will be avail­able by Decem­ber 3, 2013. Please check back for updates.

11th International Symposium: Scientific Bases for the Preparation of Heterogeneous Catalysts — PREPA11
Jul 6 – Jul 11 all-day

 
Web­site: 11th Inter­na­tion­al Sym­po­sium: PREPA 11
 
It has become a tra­di­tion that every four years, the Uni­ver­sité catholique de Lou­vain and the Katholieke Uni­ver­siteit Leu­ven joint­ly orga­nize a sym­po­sium devot­ed to the sci­en­tif­ic bases for the prepa­ra­tion of het­ero­ge­neous cat­a­lysts. These meet­ings bring togeth­er researchers from acad­e­mia and indus­try and offer a forum for dis­cus­sions on the chem­istry involved in the prepa­ra­tion of indus­tri­al het­ero­ge­neous cat­a­lysts.
We cor­dial­ly invite all sci­en­tists active in the field of het­ero­ge­neous catal­y­sis to par­tic­i­pate in the 11th Inter­na­tion­al Sym­po­sium on Sci­en­tif­ic Bases for the Prepa­ra­tion of Het­ero­ge­neous Cat­a­lysts.

The sci­en­tif­ic pro­gram will con­sist of invit­ed lec­tures, oral and poster pre­sen­ta­tions.

Con­tri­bu­tions are solicit­ed that focus on the aspects of cat­a­lyst prepa­ra­tion. Reports on physi­­co-chem­i­­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics of cat­a­lysts and cat­alyt­ic per­for­mances should be lim­it­ed to cor­re­la­tions with the prepa­ra­tion para­me­ters.

Papers will be select­ed by a sci­en­tif­ic com­mit­tee, con­sist­ing of rep­re­sen­ta­tives from indus­try of catal­y­sis (man­u­fac­tur­ers and users), based on the sci­en­tif­ic val­ue of the abstract, nov­el­ty and the com­pli­ance of the sub­ject to the sym­po­sium top­ics.

Main Topics

  • Inno­v­a­tive approach­es in cat­a­lyst prepa­ra­tion for spe­cif­ic per­for­mances and pur­pos­es
  • Advanced prepa­ra­tions of cat­a­lysts and sup­ports
  • Key con­cepts and tools in cat­a­lyst prepa­ra­tion

On behalf of the local orga­niz­ing com­mit­tee and the Inter­na­tion­al Advi­so­ry Board (IAB), we would like to invite you to the 8th Inter­na­tion­al Con­fer­ence on Envi­ron­men­tal Catal­y­sis (ICEC). The ICEC returns to U.S. soil for the first time since 1998. As the 3.5 day event will be held August 24–27, 2014 at the His­toric Grove Park Inn Resort and Spa in beau­ti­ful and scenic Asheville, North Car­oli­na.
