Dear Colleagues

The joint Symposium combining the 34th European Symposium on Computer -Aided Process Engineering and the 15th International Symposium on Process Systems Engineering (PSE) will be held in Florence, Italy on June 2-6, 2024.

The PSE series of triennial conferences was initiated in 1982, rotates between venues in the Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe and has proved to be an attractive global platform for PSE academics, researchers, and practitioners from all corners of the world to share advances in PSE education, research, and application.

The ESCAPE series is an annual series initiated in 1991 by the CAPE Working Party of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering which is convened at sites rotating through the member countries of the European Federation.

A joint symposium occurs in the years when the PSE rotation brings the event to Europe. The 2024 Symposium is only the fourth time that this joint event has been held (Copenhagen 2015, Garmisch-Partenkirchen 2006 and Trondheim 1997) and will combine the innovative PSE research conducted in Europe with exciting PSE developments occurring on a global scale.

The keynotes, presentations and discussions will extend over 4 stimulating days and will cover the progress made in the broad range of the methodologies of the PSE toolkit, including AI, data analytics and digitalization, as well as impactful applications in the energy, food, healthcare, materials and sustainability domains. The venue in Florence, one of the premier cultural centers of Europe, will also provide the opportunity for participants to further enrich their understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of the fine arts and cuisine of Italy.
