Scientific program

The scientific program of the School-Conference will include 30-minutes plenary lecturers giving by leading scientists (PL), 15-minutes oral presentations of young scientists (OP) and two poster sessions. 

Extended poster sessions will provide an unique opportunity for students and young scientists to discuss their work with leading experts. Each poster presenter will be given 5 minutes in order to summarize his work in a FLASH oral presentation (FP) prior poster session. Please, prepare 3-4 slides in Microsoft Power Point for presentation of your poster.




The major topics of the school will be:

  •   Preparation of catalysts and adsorbents
  •   Mechanisms of heterogeneous catalysis, methods of catalyst characterization
  •   Kinetics and modeling of catalytic reactions and reactors
  •   Catalysis for environmental protection, photocatalysis
  •   Catalysis for fine organic synthesis, natural gas and petroleum chemistry
  •   Catalysis in energy production, electrocatalysis

School-conference language

The official language of the School-Conference is English.
