The third Distinguished Lecture of the European Working Party on Thermodynamics and Transport Properties will be delivered by Professor Cornelis Peters during the 14th International Conference on Properties and Phase Equilibria for Product and Process Design (PPEPPD 2016), which will be held in Porto, Portugal from 22 to 26 May 2016.
He was elected unanimously by the selection Committee who thereby recognizes his 40 years research contributions to the fundamental understanding of phase theory.
Professor Michael L. Michelsen, of the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), has been selected to deliver the latest European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE) Distinguished Lecture.
The Federation’s Working Party on Thermodynamic and Transport Properties nominated Professor Michelsen in recognition of his outstanding work in the field of thermodynamics.
In a career spanning 40 years, Michelsen’s work has been influential in the energy and chemical industries, especially oil and gas exploration.
The award comprises of a certificate and €1,500 cash prize. Download press release
The European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE) announces that Dr Andreas Klamt has been selected to deliver the first Distinguished Lecture in Thermodynamics and Transport Properties.
Dr Klamt’s nomination comes in recognition of his pioneering and influencing work in applied chemical engineering thermodynamics via the development of the COSMO and COSMO-RS methods.
Based on his work at the Max-Planck-Institute for Metal Research in Stuttgart, he received his PhD in 1987 with a thesis on States of small positively charged particles in metals. His career subsequently took him to Bayer AG in Leverkusen where he worked on Computational Chemistry projects, eventually specializing in solvation and physical property calculation. He developed the methods COSMO and COSMO-RS, now widely used in the computational chemistry and chemical & biochemical engineering communities.
Currently a lecturer at the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry at the University of Regensburg, Dr Klamt teaches block courses on solvation modelling and physical property predictions in solution. In 2012 he was appointed as honorary professor.
Dr Klamt will deliver the Distinguished Lecture at the 26th European Symposium on Applied Thermodynamics, Potsdam, Germany, on 7 October 2012.
Launched by the EFCE Working Party on Thermodynamics and Transport Properties, this lecture will in future be a biennial presentation that recognizes outstanding research and achievements in this specialist field.
