Process Intensification Colloquium

The Process Intensification colloquium addresses recent advances as well as future challenges and opportunities in the field of process intensification (PI). The colloquium brings together internationally renowned researchers from industry and academia to discuss current PI topics. Invited talks of leading process intensificiation experts will give an excellent overview of the current status at the different process intensification scales, i.e., process level, equipment level, phase and transport level and molecular level. Participants from industry and academia are welcome to join the two-day colloquium. A poster session will give the participants the opportunity to present their recent work in the field of process intensification.


Date: 07.- 08.05.2019

Registration: There will be no registration fee. However, due to room capacities, the number of participants is limited. For registration please .

Location: Internationales Begegnungszentrum (IBZ), Dortmund, Germany

If not announced otherwise, the room fees are covered by the participants themselves. Dortmund charges in principle a bedding tax. However, the tax is not required in case of business trips. Therefore, the prices above do not include the bedding tax. Your hotel will help you to sign a respective document during your stay.
