The 29th European Symposium on Computer-Aided Process Engineering (ESCAPE-29) will take place in Eindhoven (The Netherlands) from Sunday, June 16th to Wednesday, June 19th, 2019. The ESCAPE-29 event is organized under the auspices of European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE Event No. 758), CAPE Working Party (CAPE-WP), Nederland Procestechnologie (NPT), and Process Systems Engineering NL (PSE-NL). The event also includes special sessions illustrating the cross-fertilization between the CAPE-WP and other working parties, including Quality-by-Design and Process Intensification.

The ESCAPE conference series is held every year. The series started with ESCAPE-1 held in Denmark (1992), while the latest in the series, ESCAPE-28 has been held in Graz during 10-13 June 2018. For more details on the ESCAPE-series visit the CAPE Working Party website.

ESCAPE-29 aims to bring together researchers and practitioners of computer-aided process engineering (CAPE) community, and provide a forum to present and evaluate emerging research methods and concepts, and to learn from industrial case studies. The boundaries of CAPE have expanded and the research interests cover a wide range of interdisciplinary problems related to the current needs of the modern society and industry.

The CAPE/PSE community is faced with an increasingly important incentive and commitment to contribute actively to the solving of many of the world’s problems such as environmental and societal issues, population growth, and limited resources. Hence the main feature of this event would be its orientation towards sustainable development, covering a large range of scales from molecule to enterprise.

In view of this commitment, and due to the actuality of the proposed orientation, it is anticipated that this conference would attract a significant number of people from academia, research institutions, and industrial organizations. The symposium, including several networking activities, would cover the most up-to-date topics related to CAPE/PSE. Presentations given by a number of distinguished European and other world-renowned plenary and keynote speakers would offer a cutting-edge to the symposium.
