It is with great pleasure to invite you to attend the 2020Summer School of the European Federation of Catalysis Societies (EFCATS),https://skd2020.chem-soc.si/en/2020-efcats-summer-school/, which will beheld from 15-19 September 2020 in Grand Hotel Bernardin Convention Center in Portorož-Portorose, Slovenia. The event entitled “Engineering Materials for Catalysis” is organized jointly by the Section for Catalysis of the Slovenian Chemical Society and the Austrian Catalysis Society.

The 2020 EFCATS Summer School will focus on recent advances regarding synthesis, in-situ and operando characterization and applications of heterogeneous catalysts as well as multi-scale modelling of catalytic processes. Besides, the publication system and less competitive free discussions will be addressed at the meeting.

Master and doctoral students as well as early-stage researchers being involved in the above-mentioned topics are strongly encouraged to attend the event. Ten worldwide known experts will deliver invited lectures. The participants will be able to present the results of their research work in the form of oral presentations or poster contributions. A half-day tour to the ELETTRA synchrotron in Trieste, Italy, will be organized as part of the 2020 EFCATS Summer School.

The invited lecturers (confirmed) will be Prof. Dr. Bao Lian Su (University of Namur, Belgium), Dr. Svetlana Mintova (ENSICAEN-University of Caen-CNRS, France), Prof. Dr. Bert Weckhuysen (Utrecht University, The Netherlands), Dr. Giulliana Aquilanti (Synchrotron ELETTRA, Italy), Dr. Alexander Genest (Institute of High Performance Computing, Singapore), Assist. Prof. Dr. Blaž Likozar (National Institute of Chemistry and University of Ljubljana, Slovenia), Assoc. Prof. Dr. Joaqim Luis Faria (University of Porto, Portugal)  and Dr. Nikolai Nesterenko (TOTAL, Belgium). Please note that the list of invited speakers remains to be completed.

It is our pleasure to inform you that the abstract submission platform is active. You are kindly invited to submit your contributions via the platform accessible at: https://www.conftool.org/efcats-summer-school-2020/. Please note that abstracts should be submitted on or before 25 May 2020.

For more information about the event as well as details concerning abstract submission, registration and accommodation, please visit the website and Facebook profile of the 2020 EFCATS Summer School. We would appreciate very much whether you could distribute this newsletter and the attached flyer among your colleagues.

 

Let’s all make the 2020 EFCATS Summer School a great success!

4th Euro Asia Zeolite Congress (4th EAZC)
January 27  – 30, 2019, Taormina (ME), Italy

The 4th EAZC is the next event of a successful series: 1st EAZC – Macau (2013),  2nd EAZC – Nice (2015) and 3rd EAZC – Bali (2017). This series of congress in the field of zeolites and other ordered porous materials will be organized alternatively in Asia and Europe on a biannual basis. To be efficient and avoid interference with the existing congress, the EAZC will be limited to 250 participants. Thus far, prominent scientists have confirmed their attendances and there will be more speakers to be announced.
