Welcome Message

The Organizing Committee of the ICCMR11 - 11th International Conference on Catalysis in Membrane Reactors, has the pleasure to invite you to come to Porto (Portugal) to participate in this important scientific meeting, from July 7th to July 11th, 2013.

The ICCMR conference series started in 1994, in Lyon - France, and continued as a biannual event organized at different locations around the globe (Moscow 1996, Copenhagen 1998, Zaragoza 2000, Dalian 2002, Lahnstein 2004, Cetraro 2005, Kolkata 2007, Lyon 2009 and Saint-Petersburg 2011). This time, ICCMR11 has landed at the worldwide known "Port Wine" city, Porto, and we are sure that the event will live up to your expectations.

The ICCMR11 meeting aims to cover all the aspects related to membrane reactors, bringing together scientists from academic research, applied research and industry working in the fields of membranes, catalysis and process engineering. We strongly believe that all the participants will have ample opportunities to meet each other and exchange ideas.

The scientific program will feature four motivating plenary lectures by distinguished researchers, keynote lectures, oral presentations and poster sessions. The oral sessions will be organized according to the participation in the different topics, each one introduced by a specific keynote lecture.

To promote posters contributions, and encourage submissions, a specific organization is devoted to favour this type of scientific communication. A flash presentation of each poster will be organized, and a continuous poster session will allow discussions throughout the conference. A number of awards will be attributed to the best student contributions, for students under 30 years old.

As usual in the ICCMR conference series, selected papers will be published in a special issue of Catalysis Today.

Finally, we are strongly committed to complement the scientific program with an appealing social programme, either for the delegates or for the accompanying persons, to provide you with a taste of the genuine Portuguese hospitality and make your stay in Porto a remarkable experience.

We look forward to welcome you in Porto in July 2013.

With kind regards

José M. Sousa (Chair) and Adélio Mendes (Co-Chair)
