Currently, there is a rapid growth of research devoted to the development of catalytic hydrogenation technologies. The most important component of the progress of this area is the development and application of new hydroprocessing catalysts and technologies. The first Symposium on this subject (St. Petersburg, 2014), has impressively demonstrated interest in the achievements in this area, as well as tendencies of the technological development of these sectors in Russia and worldwide. It was decided to give the International status to the next Symposium, thus expanding the potential range of experts interested in discussion of current trends in the development of catalytic hydrogenation technologies.

The aim of the forthcoming forum is to present and discuss ideas about the development of advanced catalysts design for oil hydroprocessing; the exchange of views between scientific experts and representatives of industrial companies on the latest achievements in the field; generation of unified approaches to the trends of the innovations development and their industrial application.
