The goal of congress is to provide a global platform for researchers and engineers coming from academia and industry to present their research results and activities in the field of materials science and engineering with a special attention on interdisciplinary research of advanced materials. The conference will provide opportunities for the delegates to exchange their face-to-face novel ideas and experiences with the international experts during plenary & invited talks, oral presentations and poster sessions. We will set up ten sessions with keynote forum, panel discussion, project negotiation along with welcome cocktail and gala dinner.

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.
General Session

  • New concepts for catalysis
  • Advanced materials for catalysis
  • Fundamentals and characterization
  • Green and sustainable catalysis
  • Environmental catalysis
  • Catalysis in energy conversion
  • Biocatalysis
  • Photocatalysis
  • Solid acids and bases
  • Selective oxidation
  • Organometallic catalysis
  • Reactor engineering

 
Industrial Session

  • 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
  • Polymerization

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

8th International Conference on Environmental Catalysis (ICEC)
Aug 24 – Aug 28 all-day

 
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

Emission Control
