The Annual Meeting on Reaction Engineering together with the Annual Meeting of the ProcessNet Subject Division Heat and Mass Transfer will again be held 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.

There is no blueprint for a successful scientific career. Career opportunities are as individual as each scientist and the choices and challenges in academics are diverse.
NaWuReT invite you to chat and discuss your plans and ideas for the future. While you can share your experience and network with colleagues from different working groups, some guests will set impulses and will be available to answer your questions.
Registration is for free. Prior registration is desirable but not mandatory. The consumption of food and beverages is at your own expense.

The conference dinner will take place in the beer garden of Würzburger Hofbräukeller.
If the weather does not allow us to sit outside, we can take a seat in the wintergarden. The location is very spacious and well ventilated due to completely opened glass doors with connection to the beer garden.
They provide delicious beer from the own brewery, Franconian wine and also refreshing alcolholfree beverages. We will choose a buffet dinner to meet the taste of every participant (also vegetarian and vegan options will be available). There will be also some entertaining live music during the dinner. The Conference Dinner will give you the opportunity to meet all colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere to continue your discussions and increase your network.
The dinner ticket is 65,00 €. All food and beverages are included in the price.
You can reach the dinner location in 20 min by walk or in 15 min by tram (from Congress Centrum station).
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 230-250 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.
We offer a range of presentation opportunities for companies during the conference. Please find further information below and in our linked PDF files.
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)
