The Annual Meeting on Reaction Engineering together with the Annual Meeting of the ProcessNet Subject Division Heat and Mass Transfer will again be held in 2022 as a physical event, offering scientists from industry, research institutions and universities the opportunity to discuss their work in person, learn about the latest developments and expand their network. The meeting in 2022 is jointly organized by the ProcessNet Subject Divisions Reaction Engineering and Heat and Mass Transfer.
Heat and mass transfer together with chemical conversion processes have to be understood in detail by chemists and chemical engineers to be able to select and design efficient and commercially viable reactor concepts as well as heat and mass transfer equipment. Thus, one focus of the upcoming meeting will be laid on new insights into the complex interplay of heat and mass transport and reaction kinetics in chemical reactors.
This is closely related to the second focus of the annual meeting, which will be on reactor as well as heat exchanger diagnostics. Time- and spatially-resolved analysis of flow, temperature and concentration fields as well as the properties of solid materials, supported by increasingly detailed multi-scale modeling, has made amazing progress in recent years.
The third focus is on the electrification of chemical processes, which will become increasingly important due to the steadily rising share of electricity generation using solar and wind energy and the desire to achieve a climate-neutral society in Germany by 2045.
Due to the international orientation of our meeting, presentations are held in English.
Four plenary lectures given by renowned scientists, a poster party and a conference dinner will provide the framework for stimulating discussions and talks. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Würzburg.
Please find here our invitation and Call for Papers as PDF file.
We are happy to announce that the following renowned scientists will give a plenary lecture at the meeting in 2022:
VDI Wärmeatlas - a success story for transfer from science to practice
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Peter Stephan, TU Darmstadt/D
Radiotracer Methods, CFD and Scale-Up: Current Status and Future Trends
Prof. Shantanu Roy, Indian Institute of Technology - Delhi, New Delhi/IND
Electrifying Organic Synthesis
Prof. Siegfried Waldvogel, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz/D
Reactor Technologies for Sustainable Chemical Production with Renewable Electricity and CO2, N2, O2, and H2O
Prof. Elias Klemm, University of Stuttgart/D
We would like to invite national and international research groups to contribute to the scientific programme, therefore all presentations will be held in English (for the lecture track of the group of heat and mass transfer: preferredly in English).
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 theme and input from young scientists are particularly solicited, other contributions to the broad field of reaction engineering as well as heat and mass transfer are also highly welcome.

Submission of abstracts for lectures is possible until 12th November 2021. Abstracts for a poster presentation can be submitted until 15th February 2022.
Please prepare 1-2 pages (incl. figures, max. size 1 MB). The abstract should explicitly mention objectives, new results and conclusions or significance of the work. Accepted abstracts will be published for all conference participants in a book of abstracts (PDF file). The congress language is English.
The selection of the contributions will be based on the review of the abstracts by the scientific committee.
Please note: Registration fee cannot be waived for authors.
The exhibition, integrated in the conference, offers a unique opportunity to promote your technologies products and services in the field of Reaction Engineering as well as Heat and Mass Transfer.
In the past years, the conference had about 220-240 participants from academia and industry. In 2022 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.
Option to book up to 2 additional conference tickets for the reduced fee of 490 € each (incl. VAT, mixed tax rate)
For sponsorship of the Conference Dinner or individual requests please contact us.
Display of your printed advertising material or publication (price per title) on a table for the duration of the conference.
Price: 200,- € (excl. 19% VAT)
If you need further information, please contact the conference office.
