ESCAPE is the European Symposium on Computer Aided Process Engineering and it is an annual conference where many PhD students from CAPEC will be participating. This year many of my colleagues will be attending this conference. But I will attend the PPEPPD 2010 conference in China as it is more close to the area that I'm working with and the fact that it is once in 3 years. Actually the due date for the abstract submission of this conference was last July 2009. Anyway I just want to promote to those who are working in the area of Computer Aided Process Engineering in case if you are interested to join next year.
About ESCAPE Conference Series
ESCAPE-20 is the 43rd event of the CAPE Working Party, which will be held in Ischia, Italy from June 6 to 9, 2010. The most recent symposia were organized in Romania, Bucharest 2007 (ESCAPE 17), France, Lyon 2008 (ESCAPE-18) and Poland, Cracow 2009 (ESCAPE-19). ESCAPE-20 is organized by AIDIC, the Italian Association of Chemical Engineering, a member society of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering. The series serves as a forum for engineers, scientists, researchers, managers and students from academia and industry to present and discuss progress being made in the area of CAPE. CAPE refers to computer aided methods, algorithms and techniques related to process and product engineering. The ESCAPE-20 scientific program reflects strategic complementary objectives of the CAPE Working Party: to check the status of historically consolidated topics by means of their industrial application and to evaluate their emerging issues. New windows will be open to the CAPE audience by inviting adjacent research areas to co-operate in the creation of the technical program.
Formats & Topics
The whole set of themes for ESCAPE-20 cover the usual scope of ESCAPE conferences, from off-line design to on-line systems, including numerical and computational methods, integrated and multiscale modelling and new opportunities. ESCAPE-20 will include a rich programme of guest speeches and keynote talks from leaders in science and industry.
