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.
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.
- New concepts for catalysis
- Advanced materials for catalysis
- Fundamentals and characterization
- Green and sustainable catalysis
- Environmental catalysis
- Catalysis in energy conversion
- Solid acids and bases
- Selective oxidation
- Organometallic catalysis
- Reactor engineering
- Introduction of recently developed and/or commercialized industrial catalysts and processes
- Emission control
- Green and sustainable processes
- Petroleum refining and petrochemicals
- Fine and chiral synthesis

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.
A meeting description is currently being developed by the Conference Chair and will be available by September 3, 2013. Please check back for updates.
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.
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.
- Innovative approaches in catalyst preparation for specific performances and purposes
- Advanced preparations of catalysts and supports
- Key concepts and tools in catalyst preparation
Program Theme: Chemistry and Stewardship of the World
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. Current technological challenges in environmental catalysis will be presented in 2 plenary presentations, 3 parallel oral session and 2 poster sessions.
The Scientific Programme of ICEC 2014 will be organized around following main topics:
Sustainable and clean energy production
- Bio-fuel catalysis
- Fuel cells, electrolyzers and solar fuels
- Fuel reforming
- Catalytic combustion
- Mobile and Stationary source emissions
- TWC, Lean de-NOx, and de-Soot
- Low temperature exhaust applications
Indoor air cleaning
- VOCs, PAH, adsorption
- Non-biodegradable organic oxidation
- Nitrates reduction
- Sludge removal
- Biomass to chemicals
- CO2 valorization
- Environmentally-friendly catalytic processes
- November 2013 — Call for papers, Submission platform opens
- January 2014 — Abstract submission deadline
- April 2014 — Notification of acceptance
- May 2014 — Early bird registration deadline
- July 2014 — Scientific program available
- August 24–27, 2014 — 8th ICEC in Asheville, NC USA
