24th International Symposium on Chemical Reaction Engineering

Conference Overview

The 24th International Symposium for Chemical Reaction Engineering (ISCRE 24) will take place in Minneapolis, MN, on June 12-15, 2016. The scientific theme for ISCRE 24 is "Foundations and Vistas in Chemical Reaction Engineering."

Meeting the world's demands for energy, food, water, and medicine – in a sustainable way, while protecting the environment – requires development of new technologies and advanced materials. The theme of this symposium aims to capture the essential role that chemical reaction engineering plays in addressing these challenges with both a focus on the fundamentals (foundations) and future directions (vistas).

Chemical Reaction Engineering (CRE) is the discipline that quantifies the interactions of transport phenomena and kinetics in relating reactor performance to operating conditions and feed variables. This quantification requires a thorough understanding of the nanoscale (molecular level of scrutiny), micro- to mesoscale (transport and kinetic events at a particle level), and macroscale (reactor design in the context of process and plant design). CRE develops general principles useful in approaching a variety of systems (chemical, biochemical, biological, materials, environmental, electrochemical, etc.) where engineering of reactions is needed.

Six plenary, twelve keynote, and over 100 oral session presentations along with about 100 posters will highlight key areas of CRE.

ISCRE 24 will be held at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis, in downtown Minneapolis, USA. The Hyatt is within walking distance to over 50 dining and nightlife locations. Light rail within walking distance of the Hyatt also allows for easy access to the Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) airport, the University of Minnesota, the Mall of America, and downtown St. Paul.
