I am very pleased to invite you to the 21st International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering CHISA 2014 and the 17th Conference on Process Integration, Modelling and Optimisation for Energy Saving and Pollution Reduction PRES 2014, which will be held jointly in Prague from 23 to 27 August 2014.
Like all the CHISA Congresses before, even this one will cover a range of important topics and, together with the PRES conference will offer many real interdisciplinary links. The logistics of the program, which includes both the standard sessions and specialized symposia, should enable the interested colleagues to listen also to presentations which are close to their fields of research yet outside their everyday horizons.
You are cordially invited to attend the Congress, to meet colleagues and friends and enjoy your stay in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. We would love to see you in Prague!
Professor Jiří Drahoš
President of the Czech Society of Chemical Engineering (CSCHE)
CONGRESSES CHISA AND CONFERENCES PRES
The series of International Congresses CHISA taking place in the centre of Europe started in 1962 in Brno, Czech Republic, then continued in Mariánské Lázně, and since 1972 the Congresses have been held in Prague.
However, it is worth mentioning that the logo was used for the national event as early as 1953. The word CHISA originates from the Czech acronym for “Chemical Engineering, Chemical Equipment Design and Automation” and later became a “trade mark” for large meetings which had emphasized especially East-West-European and later pan-European contacts. Nevertheless, the stepwise development during the last two decades has transformed the one-time European Congresses into an event of world importance.
The PRES conferences started in Prague in 1998, and since then they have been held in Budapest, Hungary (1999), Prague (2000), Florence, Italy (2001), Prague (2002), Hamilton, Canada (2003), Prague (2004), Taormina, Italy (2005), Prague (2006), Ischia, Italy (2007), Prague (2008), Rome, Italy (2009), Prague (2010), Florence, Italy (2011), Prague (2012), Rhodes, Greece (2013).
The objective of this joint event is to provide engineers, scientists, researchers, technologists, students and others a platform to present their latest results, to interchange ideas, to make new contacts, to establish new collaborations, and many more. The Congress addresses the full spectrum of chemical and process engineering practice, including current trends and future needs.
