DECHEMA FORUM - a new conference type for more interaction and networking!
One topic, two days, valuable contacts – that is what the DECHEMA FORUM is all about. During the conference highly-topical, application-relevant subjects will be reviewed, discussed and rated from different perspectives: How can the chemical, pharmaceutical and life sciences industries arrange their production more sustainable?
There are many visions such as hydrogen economy, circular economy or waste-free production for a sustainable industrial future. But what is already applicable today? How do we deal with climate change and resource scarcity? How can processes be developed and scaled more efficiently, and what tools are available for this? And what can industries learn from each other?
Lectures, discussions, workshops and a company exhibition will ensure that not only all aspects are considered, but also provide inspiration and ideas for new solutions. Young scientists will not only find plenty of information here, but will also have the opportunity to build their first networks beyond their own areas of expertise and establish contacts with potential employers.
" Wissenschaft und Industrie im Dialog" (Science and Industry in Dialogue) will jointly find new, practical solutions to the major challenges – join us and be part of it! The conference language of DECHEMA Forum is German, but the presenting language for all lectures/ posters will be english. Please note that some workshops/ practical sessions and discussions might be in German language.
Contributions can be submitted by March 1 at the latest. The major topics for the call of papers are "Coping with resource scarcity", "Development of sustainable processes", "Development of the hydrogen economy" and "Digital transformation".
The organising committee cordially invites you to submit abstracts for presentations and posters for the conference programme. We look forward to receiving your contributions from research institutions, universities and industry. Tandem presentations by developers and users are particularly welcome.
Please note that the paper submission tool is only available in German. 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.
