The conference will be organized in four parallel sessions, the first three dedicated to discuss five grand-challenges for catalysis in an integrated view between homo-, hetero- and bio-catalysis as well as covering aspects going from theory and modelling to applied catalysis and engineering:
Catalysis to address the evolving energy and chemical scenario
Catalysis for a cleaner and sustainable future
Addressing catalysis complexity
Understanding and design catalyst from molecular to material scale
Expanding catalysis concepts
The fourth parallel session will have a different structure. It will be partially dedicated to “industrial catalysis” where contributions either from companies or with a prevailing industrial character will be presented. The 4th parallel session will be also utilized to continue the positive experiment of shot symposia, e.g. up to 30 short thematic sections (60 to 140 min each) to discuss these topics and present selected contributions in the form of short orals.
The fifth paralle session (not present on Sunday 28th) is dedicate to five thematic symposia.
The scientific program is completed with:
5 Plenary (1h)
22 keynote (35 min + 5 min questions)
270 Orals (15 min + 5 min questions)
30 Shot Symposia, with about 410 short orals (7 min including change, no questions)
3 poster sessions (about 400 poster each). Poster awards are sponsored by Royal Society of Chemistry.
The scientific programme starts on Sunday 27th at 14:30 with the Opening Cerimonia and ends on Thursday 31st at 19:00 after the short Closing Remarks. On the same day, at 20:00 it will be the Conference Banquet. On Sunday 27th evening it will be the Welcome Cocktail, sponsored by Wiley/ChemPubSoc, after a short presentation of the journal ChemSusChem to celebrate the 10th Year Anniversary of this journal.
