Catalysts Upcoming Events Announce Your Event Here

24–29 June 2018 2018 Catalysis GRC

New London, NH, USA

Since 1947 the Gordon Research Conference on Catalysis has been a forum for discussing the latest advances and the future of the field. We continue this tradition with a focus on advances in the four pillars in catalysis research: catalyst synthesis and characterization, kinetics, and theoretical methods, as applied to catalytic solutions to global grand challenges. The meeting will provide unique opportunities for interactions with many of the leaders in our field. This year we will start a new tradition with the addition of the Gordon Research Seminar that will "bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors" two days prior to the main conference.

1–5 July 2018 Process Systems Engineering, PSE 2018

Manchester Grand Hyatt, San Diego, CA, USA

MDPI will be attending the PSE2018 conference. PSE2018 is part of a series of conferences on Process Systems Engineering held every three years, rotating between Asia, Europe, and North and South America. The high quality scientific program will cover advances in core PSE topics and cross-cutting themes. The role, contributions, and future directions of PSE research addressing challenges in energy, water, manufacturing, sustainable environment, and health will be highlighted.

The following MDPI open access journals will be represented at this event:






Applied Sciences



If you are also attending this conference, please feel free to visit our exhibition table (at the poster session, Coronado Foyer on the 4th floor). Our delegates look forward to meeting you in person to answer any questions you may have regarding open access publishing or our journals. For more information about the conference, please visit:

8–12 July 2018 12th International Symposium on the "Scientific Bases for the Preparation of Heterogeneous Catalysts" (PREPA12)

Louvain-La-Neuve, Belgium

The 12th International Symposium on the "Scientific Bases for the Preparation of Heterogeneous Catalysts" will be held in Louvain-la-Neuve, from 8 till 12 July 2018.

It is a tradition that every four years, the University of Louvain and the KU Leuven jointly organise a symposium devoted to the scientific bases for the preparation of heterogeneous catalysts. This meeting brings together researchers from academia and industry and offers a forum for discussions on the chemistry involved in the preparation of industrial heterogeneous catalysts.

We cordially invite all scientists active in the field of heterogeneous catalysis to participate in the 12th International Symposium on Scientific Bases for the Preparation of Heterogeneous Catalysts.

The scientific program will consist of invited lectures, oral and poster presentations.

Contributions are solicited that focus on the aspects of catalyst preparation. Reports on physico-chemical characteristics of catalysts and catalytic performances should be limited to correlations with the preparation parameters.

8–13 July 2018 The 21st International Symposium on Homogeneous Catalysis (ISHC XXI)

Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

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. It 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.

Besides, this session is part of a call for papers for the special issue “Recent Advances in Homogeneous Catalysis” on Catalysts. Prof. Luísa Margarida Martins from Universidade de Lisboa is acting as the Guest Editor

2–5 September 2018 The 28th European Colloquium on Heterocyclic Chemistry

Grand Hotel Tiziano, Italy

The 28th European Colloquium on Heterocyclic Chemistry will take place in Lecce (Italy) from September 2 to 5, 2018 in the very beautiful location of Grand Hotel Tiziano.

The ECHC is an open meeting dealing with all aspects of heterocyclic chemistry with speakers from several european countries and participants from academia and industry. The ECHC meeting aims at presenting innovative results and promoting scientific interactions.

The 3 following topics will be covered:

- Heterocyclic Synthetic Methodology
- Heterocycles properties in biological systems
- Enabling Technologies

Since the foundation in 1974 (Mons, Belgium), ECHC meetings have been organized all over Europe and the ECHC series have grown to be major events in the field with world class speakers.

The scientific programme will include 11 plenary lectures, 11 invited lectures and many short oral communications selected from submitted abstracts, as well as poster communications.

4–7 September 2018 7th EuCheMS Conference on Nitrogen Ligands

Lisbon, Portugal

The 7th EuCheMS Conference on Nitrogen Ligands will be held in Lisbon, Portugal on 4-7 September 2018.

The scientific level of the conference will be provided by its attendants and thus you are cordially invited to present your best and recent scientific work orally, by poster or by poster with a flash oral presentation. The final selection of the type of presentation will have to take into account the scientific programme and facilities layout. Not only the senior researchers are welcome, but also the younger ones, encouraging the exchange of ideas among different generations.

The conference aims to highlight the role of Nitrogen Ligands in Coordination Chemistry, Metal-Organic Chemistry, Inorganic and Bioinorganic Chemistry, Biologically Active Compounds, Materials, Catalysis (both homogeneous and heterogeneous), Metal-mediated Synthesis, including also Non-covalent Interactions and Supramolecular Assemblies, C-H Bond Activation and Functionalization, and Electrochemistry.

All approaches will be considered, from fundamental to applied ones, including multidisciplinary studies thus avoiding artificial boundaries.

13–15 September 2018 2nd Edition of Global Conference on Catalysis, Chemical Engineering & Technology

Rome, Italy

Building upon the success of the Global Conference on Catalysis and Reaction Engineering (GCR 2017) at Las Vegas, USA on October 19-21, 2017 we take an enormous pleasure in inviting you to attend the 2nd Global Conference on Catalysis, Chemical Engineering & Technology (CAT 2018) in September 13-15, 2018 at Rome, Italy. The Conference is designed to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and experience of researchers, young inspired scientists, academicians, and industrialists worldwide. CAT 2018 will continue this philosophy by encouraging the sharing of research and practice of Catalysis and Chemical Engineering education, as it impacts on the learning experience of students and qualified practitioners, social care needs and safety of the individuals and communities it serves worldwide.
