21st International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering CHISA 2014 Prague
17th Conference on Process Integration, Modelling and Optimisation for Energy Saving and Pollution Reduction PRES 2014
23-27 August 2014 Prague, Czech Republic



The CHISA Congress with all its topics and specialised symposia supports the concept of sustainable development – a concept aimed at the future of mankind. Convinced that chemical engineering includes, masters and creates most of the tools that play a key role in realising this concept, chemical engineers try to find the specific and most effective ways to maximise this effort. This striving includes formulation of new targets of individual branches of chemical engineering science and practice, developing new methods for achieving them, dissemination of relevant information among specialists from Europe and the whole world and supporting young engineers in entering and understanding the profession.


The Congress is structured as follows

  • General topics of chemical and process engineering
  • Specialised symposia
  • PRES 2014 – 17th Conference on process integration, modelling and optimisation for energy saving and pollution reduction
  • Exhibition MARCHES 2014
  • EFCE WP Meetings

The technical program includes invited plenary lectures and keynote lectures, parallel lecture sessions, and poster sessions. Some symposia will be co-organised with the corresponding EFCE Working Parties and/or other recognised international bodies.
