The Annual Meeting on Reaction Engineering will be held in 2023 in Frankfurt. It offers scientists from industry, research institutions and universities the opportunity to discuss their work, learn about the latest developments and expand their network in person.
The meeting is organized by the DECHEMA Subject Division Reaction Engineering in cooperation with VDI-GVC.
The detailed understanding of the processes within chemical reactors is key to innovation in modern industrial production. Developments in modern reaction engineering are nowadays used in chemical production, but also in neighboring areas of pharmaceutical production, energy supply, conversion, storage, materials science and many other fields of modern industrial society. Reaction engineering is contributing to the development of efficient, sustainable products, processes and services.
We welcome contributions from all areas of reaction engineering. Additionally, we have chosen three focus topics for the annual meeting in 2023:
The broad use of research data in academic and industrial research represents an outstanding opportunity. With the NFDI initiative, the German Research Foundation (DFG) is funding the development of standardized tools for handling and analyzing large research datasets. Reaction engineering will benefit from this, if the tools will be used to a broad extend in the scientific community.
This subject is closely related to the second focus topic, which are new tools for developing models of complex reaction kinetics and novel approaches for their parameterization.
The third key topic will be the development of processes for the use of new, sustainable raw materials for chemical production and the essential contribution made by reaction engineering, which will make it possible to create new viable value chains.
Due to the international orientation of our meeting, presentations are held in English.
Three plenary lectures given by renowned scientists from industry and academic institutions, a poster party and a conference dinner will provide the framework for stimulating discussions and talks. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Frankfurt.
You are cordially invited to contribute to the scientific programme with a lecture or a poster.
The conference particularly aims to motivate young academics and young professionals from industry to contribute to this event. The programme will favour their engagement and give space for new and innovative topics.
Even though contributions to the focus themes and input from young scientists are particularly solicited, other contributions to the broad field of reaction engineering are also highly welcome.
Deadline for a paper submission is 9th December 2022.
You can submit a paper for one the following topics:
Please prepare an abstract with 1-2 pages (incl. figures, max. size 1 MB, max. 2 pages). The abstract should explicitly mention objectives, new results and conclusions or significanceof the work.
The selection of the contributions will be based on the review of the abstracts by the scientific committee.
Accepted abstracts will be published for all conference participants in a book of abstracts (PDF file).
The congress language is English.
Please note: Registration fee cannot be waived for authors.

REACNOSTICS is modeling, constructing and building chemical research reactors for the spatially resolved investigation of catalytic processes. Our methodology comprises simulations and operando measurements of concentration & temperature profiles in combination with spectroscopic catalyst characterization. By applying patented methods we provide insight in catalytic reactors during time on stream required for knowledge based optimization.
Manufacturers for equipment related to reaction engineering, engineering companies and chemical producers of chemicals as well as research institutes are invited to participate in the exhibition.
The exhibition, integrated in the conference, offers a unique opportunity to promote your technologies products and services in the broad field of Reaction Engineering. You can connect with decision makers from research and industry. The conference is directed at chemists, materials scientists, chemical and process engineers.
In the past years, the conference had about 230-250 participants from academia and industry. In 2023 we expect at least the same number of participants.
This is a great opportunity to strengthen your network as you build up existing and generate new relationships.
