The scientific program will comprise plenary invited lectures, key-note presentations, oral presentations and posters.
Scientific trends of the conference
- Catalytic processes for valuables production from biomass
- Catalyst application for clean syn-gas and clean hydrogen production, power and CHP via biomass gasification
- Catalysis in combustion and co-combustion of renewable sources
- Catalytic interesterification and hydrocracking of lipids to biofuel
- Catalytic approach to production of biofuels via biomass pyrolysis
- Biocatalysis: Fermentation and enzymatic processes for biofuels production
The Organizing Committee plans to offer the participants the visits to the power plants, as well as the objects on production and obtaining of the biological materials, the products of fine and organic synthesis from renewable raw materials during the conference and post-conference period.
The official language of the conference is English.
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.
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
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
