8-13 July, 2018: 21st International Symposium on Homogeneous Catalysis

24. 5. 2018 | Susan

International Symposium on Homogeneous Catalysis (ISHC XXI 2018)

Date: 8-13 July, 2018
Venue: Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Registration: click here

The ISHC is organized every second year and has a long-standing tradition as the key conference on homogeneous catalysis as it provides an excellent discussion platform for all aspects of homogeneous catalysis and its applications. We will provide a valuable podium for scientific discussions as well as a stimulating meeting place encouraging a close partnership between delegates from academia and industry. By tradition, top scientists will present new developments and prospects covering a wide range of catalytic reactions and processes, including topics like catalyst design, mechanistic insights, new concepts in catalysis and catalyst applications. Unique to the ISHC is the single session approach with plenary keynote presentations by distinguished and young scientists and plenary oral communications. Sufficient time for discussions during poster sessions will be scheduled.

This summer the very first ISHC PhD pre-conference will be held on the 8th of July!
The ISHC pre-conference for PhD students will consist of two exclusive keynote lectures from Hélène Olivier-Bourbigou from the IFP Energies Nouvelles in Lyon and Moshe Kol from the Tel Aviv University. We will give six PhD-students a unique chance to present their work on different areas in homogeneous catalysis at the ISHC pre-conference. Next to that, an interactive poster session will be organized – welcome to every participant – in which everyone gets the opportunity to discuss their work and problems in detail with people working in the same research area. You can find the preliminary programme here.
The Pre-Conference will take place in the Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam, as will the main ISHC conference. The ISHC conference will start directly after the pre-conference. The ISHC registration includes the possibility to register for the ISHC PhD pre-conference. You can still register, even if you already registered for ISHC 2018.
Abstract submission ends on the 1st of June and the deadline for registration closes on the 15th of June. The ISHC PhD pre-conference and the general ISHC conference share the panel for abstract submission. Just select ‘PhD pre-conference’ from the list of topics.

28 September, 2018: International symposium on ‘Catalysis Engineering’

1. 5. 2018 | Susan

After a long and successful academic career in both Amsterdam and Delft

Professor Freek Kapteijn
will officially retire this year.

In honor of his leadership in the field and his many achievements, we organize an international symposium on ‘Catalysis Engineering’ on Friday, September 28th, 2018.
The day before,  we will arrange the opportunity for former colleagues, coworkers and students of the Catalysis Engineering group to meet.

International Symposium

On September 28th, 2018, we organize an International Symposium on ‘Catalysis Engineering‘.

This covers all aspects of catalysis from the molecular to the reactor scale.
The following lecturers have confirmed:
• Prof. Jürgen Caro (Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany)
• Prof. Avelino Corma (Instituto de Tecnología Química, Valencia, Spain)
• Prof. Jorge Gascon (KAUST Catalysis Centre, Saudi Arabia)
• Prof. Enrique Iglesia (University of California at Berkeley, USA)
• Prof. Jacob Moulijn (Em. Professor TU Delft, The Netherlands)
• Prof. Javier Pérez-Ramírez (ETH Zürich, Switzerland)
• Prof. Enrico Tronconi (Politecnico di Milano, Italy)
• Prof. Dirk De Vos (K.U. Leuven, Belgium)

You are cordially invited to participate.
Location: Science Centre Delft ‘Mekelzalen’
Mijnbouwstraat 120, 2628 RX Delft, The Netherlands.

If you are interested in attending the symposium, please register on-line:

The registration is free of charge. However, the number of attendees is limited.

For former employees and students of Catalysis Engineering we will organise a  reunion on September 27.
You can register for that on the same website.

16-21 September, 2018: XXII International Conference on Organic Synthesis (22-ICOS)

2. 2. 2018 | Susan

XXII International Conference on Organic Synthesis (22-ICOS)
16-21 September 2018, Firenze, Italy

Deadline for early registration and abstract submission: February 28, 2018

The upcoming international event XXII International Conference on Organic Synthesis (22-ICOS), under the auspices of IUPAC and Italian Chemical Society, will bring together leading scientists of the world to share their interests in the wide and inspiring field of Organic Synthesis.

29 Plenary and invited prestigious speakers, including 2016 Nobel Laureate Ben Feringa, have confirmed their presence in Firenze in 2018. Thieme-IUPAC Prize for 2018 will be also presented on the occasion of the Conference.

To download the flyer, please click here.

More than 60 oral communications and up to 450 poster presentations will allow young researchers to present their chemistry and to discuss with the leading scientist attending the Conference.

The abstract submitting procedure and conference registration are already active and we suggest registering soon to ensure the possibility of a scientific communication.

An early selection of the accommodation is also recommended as Firenze is a very busy touristic city, especially in September.

We look forward to meeting you in Florence!

Prof. Alberto Brandi, Chairman, University of Florence
Prof. Maurizio Taddei, co-chairman, University of Siena

Please feel free to circulate this announcement to colleagues who may be interested in this conference.

29 January, 2018: Plasma Catalysis Workshop

15. 1. 2018 | Susan

Plasma Catalysis Workshop - Invitation

Date - Monday January 29, 2018
Venue -  University of Twente, Enschede NL
Location - Building Zuid Horst, Room ZH286

You are kindly invited to join a workshop on plasma catalysis on January 29th. This workshop is organized by an informal network comprising the groups of Annemie Bogaerts and Vera Meynen (University of Antwerp), Volker Hessel (TU Eindhoven), several colleagues at DIFFER and the CPM group of Leon Lefferts at U Twente. The goal of the workshop is to discuss progress on the question how synergy can be obtained by combining conversion technology based on plasma and catalysis. Please click here for the program.
