Call for Abstracts: 7th Symposium on Product Design and Engineering
The EFCE Section on Product Design and Engineering is pleased to announce the Call for Abstracts for its 7th Symposium on Product Design and Engineering. This symposium is held in the frame of the 12th European Congress of Chemical Engineering (www.ecce12-ecab5.org/) in the city of Florence, Italy, from 15 to 19 September 2019.
We very much welcome contributions both from industry and academia!
Product design and engineering is considered a branch of the general chemical engineering discipline at the interface between the fields of chemical engineering, formulation science & technology and materials science & engineering. It is applied in many industrial areas such as pharmaceutical, biomedical, food and feed products, cosmetics, adhesives, coatings, composites, etc. as all require research into the physical, chemical and biological processes that create specific formulated product structures.
- structured product design and engineering methodology covering all elements in the product supply chain
- molecular design and engineering of properties
- understanding of molecular/micro-structure and product performance relationships
- insight into molecular/micro-structure and processing relationships
Organizing & Scientific Committee of the Symposium
- Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Bröckel, Chair
- Dr. Stefan Kaufmann, Co-Chair
- Prof. Dr. Pedro Saraiva
- Raquel Costa, PhD
