11-13 March, 2013, NCCC
The XIVth Netherlands Catalysis and Chemistry Conference will take place March 11-13, 2013 in
Noordwijkerhout, the Netherlands. NCCC combines a number of national symposia in
the field of chemistry and catalysis. The Flanders-Belgium catalysis and chemistry community also
contributes to this conference. NCCC-XIV offers a unique, international forum to exchange innovative
ideas between academic and industrial scientists in the broad area of catalysis and chemistry.

Registration before January 15, 2013, via the website www.n3c.nl
23-26 June, 2013, Catalysis for Sustainability
Summer School “Catalysis for Sustainability: Exploring Resource Diversity”
June 23-26, 2013, Rolduc Abbey, The Netherlands
A 3-day Summer School for PhD students, postdocs and all interested in the subject “Catalysis for Sustainibility” will be organized in Rolduc Abbey, amidst the beautiful hills in the southern part of The Netherlands, on June 23-26, 2013.
The programme consists of invited lectures by authorities in the field of energy from current and future renewable sources, photocatalysis, natural gas, synthetic fuels, biomass utilization and materials for energy applications. In addition there will be dedicated tutorials, workshops on ‘Entrepeneurship’, ‘Getting your science published’ and ‘Life cycle analysis’, meet-the-speaker discussions, and parallel sessions where PhD students and postdocs will present their work.
The Summer School intends to educate with authoritative lectures, to give students the opportunity to present their work to and communicate with experts in workshops and poster sessions, and to do all this in an informal setting. Of course, we will also organize the time-tested soccer match between Europe and the Rest of the World.
The Summer School is co-organized by several organizations:
• The EuroTech universities (DTU Denmark, TU Munich, Eindhoven University of Technology and EPF Lausanne);
• NIOK, the Netherlands Institute for Catalysis Research;
• Catchbio, the Dutch public-private partnership on catalytic biomass conversion;
• NRSC-Catalysis, the Top Research School on Catalysis;
• ERIC, the European Research Institute of Catalysis;
• C*Change, the South African DST-NRF centre of excellence;
• The Royal Netherlands Chemical Society (KNCV - section Catalysis);
• EaStChem, the joint Chemistry Research School of Edinburgh and St. Andrews;
• POLYCAT, large-scale collaborative FP7-EU-project focusing on polymer-based catalysts and microflow technology for fine chemical synthesis.
Registration, abstracts and student scholarships
Participation will be limited to about 125, early registration (website only) is therefore recommended. A substantial number of scholarships for PhD students covering part of the participation fee is available:
• PhD students from EuroTech, NRSC-Catalysis, Catchbio and NIOK can apply for a reduced registration fee sponsored by these organizations.
• BSc. and MSc. students interested in NIOK’s Solar Fuels graduate programme can apply for a scholarship at their home university.
See the website www.europeansummerschool.eu for details.
Scholarship applications, as well as abstracts for poster or oral presentation can be submitted by following the instructions on the website.
21-27 July, 2013, ICCE-21
21st Annual International Conference on Composites or Nano Engineering
When: 21-27 July, 2013
Where: Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain (the “Hawaii” of Europe)
In view of your expertise, we would like to invite you to present paper at the coming ICCE-21 conference. The authors of ICCE-21 are required to submit detailed two-page short papers, each page two-columns with graphs. We welcome papers in the design, manufacture, and use of composite materials and structures and all areas of nanoscience, nanoengineering, energy materials, bio-nano materials, or green composites, among many other topics. All areas on resins such as Metals, Ceramics, polymers, different kinds of fibers and their many properties are included in the scope of this conference.
This conference has received overwhelming responses to our general call for papers. You are encouraged to inform interested friends to present papers. If you wish to develop sessions, please contact D. Hui.
The conference aims to solve or partially solve critical issues and balance the three fundamentals of Composites/Nano engineering, namely, Mechanics, Manufacturing and Materials, in all length scales. We emphasize the D.I.M. approaches to science and engineering (namely, DURABILITY approach to structures, INTERDISCIPLINARY approach to science, and MULTIFUNCTIONAL approach to materials). Thus, you will find many chemists and engineers in this conference, a pleasant situation since these two groups traditionally tend to attend separate conferences.
The conference is intensive enough for the brilliant researchers in a five-day conference, and yet relaxed enough for the most discriminate tourists. The ICCE-21 conference has received over 200,000 citations in Google Search. Over 30 lectures were presented by members of US National Academy of Engineering or US National Academy of Science. Like Hawaii, we have never heard of a spouse who does not want to go to Tenerife, it is too good to be there with the fresh air, beaches, huge variations of landscapes, and excellent food, unique artistic culture, and Spanish hospitality (see web and click on “why visit Tenerife?”)
We welcome senior professors or experienced engineers at ICCE-21.. Many of them attended ICCE when they were “students” long time ago. This is why we especially welcome junior faculty members and graduate students, we wish to help them to gain visibility and promote research interactions.. The registration fee and hotel costs are reasonable in a five-day materials conference in any EURO country.
The acceptance of papers in ICCE-21 Tenerife, does not imply acceptance in Composites B journal. Interested author who plans to attend ICCE-21 should submit paper title to D. Hui immediately.
Chair ICCE-21 Tenerife
Editor-in-Chief Composites B journal
Doctor Honoris Causa in Italy, Ukraine and Vietnam
January 21, 2013
News from David Hui, 17 May 2013:
We are still accepting new paper titles, please immediately submit paper titles and names of all authors, and then submit detailed two page short paper, each page two columns, with graphs. Whenever feasible, inform many interested friends, especially those from Europe, or young faculty or students who needs visibility and networking.
ICCE-21 Conference will be held inside Grand Mencey Hotel, five-star luxury hotel. The ICCE special sleeping rooms rate for this Mencey hotel is 68 EURO, BB tax included.
If your paper is accepted, the acceptance letter will be immediately sent to you. If you need entry visa to enter Spain, we will assist you and email and postal mail you the acceptance letter from University in Spain.
4 ― 9 August 2013: ISHHC-16
The Sixteenth International Symposium on Relations between Homogeneous and Heterogeneous Catalysis

6-10 July, 2014, PREPA11
11th International Symposium
Scientific Bases for the Preparation of Heterogeneous Catalysts - PREPA11
6-10 July, 2014, Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium)
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.
- Innovative approaches in catalyst preparation for specific performances and purposes
- Advanced preparations of catalysts and supports
- Key concepts and tools in catalyst preparation
