The improved understanding of molecular-scale phenomena opens up an immense field of new possible applications for the chemical industry and beyond. The recent efforts in this field have resulted in models, simulation methods, and tools that allow not only solving academic problems but also contribute substantially to industrial research and development.
They open up routes to gain insight and improve processes which up until now could only be dealt with empirically.
The workshop is aimed at providing industrial experts with a clear vision of the opportunities that lie within this rapidly developing interdisciplinary field, where efforts from natural sciences and engineering are combined. It represents a unique opportunity to gain an overview of the state of research and its applications in the developing of engineering models.
There will be a number of review lectures will be provided, along with a large number of examples of success stories where these new technologies have been implemente.
The workshop is a joint initiative of the European EFCE « Thermodynamics and Transport Properties» and the German ProcessNet « Thermodynamics » working parties. It is organized by the French SFGP working party and the Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS) Lyon. It will be held in Lyon, France, located on the Rhone River in the heart of the Rhône-Alpes region, from Monday morning March 19th to Tuesday afternoon, March 20th, 2012.
