26–27 October 2020 2nd Basel Sustainable Publishing Forum - The Global Transition to Open Access: Challenges and Solutions


The 2nd Basel Sustainable Publishing Forum (BSPF) will be held in Basel, 26–27 October 2020. The aim of the forum is to offer a platform for open and constructive conversation between researchers, learned societies, university librarians, funding agencies, scholarly publishers, publishing platforms, and other concerned stakeholders (professional associations, etc.) to identify implementable solutions for a sustainable global transition to open access.

A main topic of discussion of BSPF2 will be the challenges facing learned societies in this transition to Open Access, but the conference will also cover a broad array of topics relevant to these challenges, like the development of alternative metrics, the evaluation and promotion of researchers, the OA price transparency, the current situation and limitations of transformative agreements, copyright, etc.

This will be a unique opportunity to work together towards sustainable solutions for a successful global transition to open access.

10–30 November 2020 1st International Electronic Conference on Catalysis Sciences


It is my pleasure to invite you to join the 1st International Electronic Conference on Catalysis Sciences in 2020 (ECCS 2020) that will be hosted online by:

An often-quoted statistic is that catalysts are used in 90% of all chemical products, a reflection of the importance of catalysis in powering a modern society. This includes the role that catalysis plays in the production of fuels, chemical manufacture, fertilizer production, environmental protection and cleanup, pharmaceutical manufacture, sustainable energy, biomass conversion, polymer chemistry, and electrochemistry. ECCS 2020 will present the latest research on the use of catalysts in these critical areas. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Single Atom Catalysts
  • Electrocatalysis
  • Photocatalysis
  • Catalysts for Natural Gas Conversion
  • Catalysts for Biomass Conversion
  • Computational Catalysis
  • Catalyst Synthesis and Characterization
  • Biocatalysis
I hope you will choose to be a part of this exciting conference and present your most transformative research on catalysis.

28–30 October 2020 Sustainable Places 2020

Aix-les-Bains, France

Join us to discuss 2020 themes on Circular Economy, Digital Twins, BIPV, Local Energy Communities, Sustainable Digital Infrastructure, and as always all sustainability topics on 28 -30 October 2020, in Aix-les-Bains, France.

Sustainability targets and climate change objectives cannot be met without addressing buildings and the built environment at the building, district and urban scale to include our transport and energy infrastructures. Renowned for showcasing results coming out of the EU Horizon 2020 Framework Programme via the participation of cutting-edge research and innovation projects, the scope of Sustainable Places is captured directly in its name. It involves designing, building and retrofitting the places we live and work in a more sustainable way.

Sustainable Places prides itself on being an ideal platform for the dissemination of research, the conduct of workshops, EU project clustering and networking between stakeholders of all types. SP2020 will be held over three days allowing morning travel on the first day and afternoon travel on the third day. Between opening and closing keynote sessions, parallel technical sessions and project-organized workshops will be held on conference topic areas. The venue will be available all week (free of charge) for project meetings and side events.

4–8 July 2021 19th International Conference on Experimental Mechanics (ICEM 2021)

Kraków, Poland

International Conferences on Experimental Mechanics, organized under the auspices of the European Society for Experimental Mechanics (EuraSEM), have a long tradition (1959 Delft, 1962 Paris, 1966 Berlin, 1970 Cambridge, 1974 Udine, 1978 Munich, 1982 Haifa, 1986 Amsterdam, 1990 Copenhagen, 1994 Lisbon, 1998 Oxford, 2004 Bari, 2007 Alexandroupolis, 2010 Poiters, 2012 Porto, 2014 Cambridge, 2016 Rhodes, 2018 Brussels). ICEM brings together internationally recognized experts and young researchers in an effort to exchange ideas in different topics having the common link of “Experimental Mechanics”. ICEM acts also as a platform for establishing connections between different research teams that are trying to build and develop future scientific collaboration.

Papers published in the Conference Proceedings of the 19th ICEM 2021 organized in Kraków, Poland, will be focused on experimental and measuring techniques for thorough study of the mechanical properties of different materials, engineering structures and systems, investigations which are necessary to create the physical foundations and provide verification of analytical or numerical methods in engineering design. The topics of the conference include experimental aspects of research on mechanical, thermal–mechanical or dynamic behavior of various materials, their forming, damage, fatigue and fracture, advances in optical, ultrasonic, and acoustic testing techniques (photoelasticity, interferometry, DIC, DVC, etc.), sensor technology (strain gage technology, optical fiber application, accelerometers, etc.), and condition monitoring. The ever-increasing importance of the energy harvesting methods (photovoltaic, wind, wave, etc.), developments in nanomaterials, nanostructures, composites, smart materials and structures, recycled materials and additive manufacturing will be addressed during the conference.
