CONGRESS AWARDS

I. The CHISA Congress Plenary Talk Main Award

The laureate will be selected by the Congress Awards Committee in cooperation with members of the Congress Advisory Board. Candidates could be nominated by any of the colleagues, CSCHE board members, EFCE board members, members of the chemical engineering community, academics, industry managers, etc. or by themselves. There is no age limit for the nominated candidates. The award-winner will be granted with the 1000 Euro prize, and she/he will be exempted from the conference fee. It is expected the awarded person will deliver a plenary talk for the full conference audience (60 min). For nominations, a CV showing also clearly scientific and/or R&D achievements must be submitted before 1 March 2020 together with the two pages long summary of the presented topic. The scientific excellence will be the evaluated main criterion. Nominations must be sent to kluson@icpf.cas.cz. The successful candidate will be informed by the end of March 2020 by a separate e-mail. Then details to the CHISA Congress Plenary Talk Award will appear at the congress web pages.

CONGRESS SPECIAL ISSUE

CHISA 2020 offers to selected presenters publishing their contributions as full papers in a special issue of Chemical Engineering and Technology Impact factor: 2.418, ISI Journal Citation Reports © Ranking: 2018:58/138 (Engineering, Chemical), Online ISSN: 1521-4125 © WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.

Upon the submission, the CHISA authors will be asked to express their intention to submit a contribution as an article to the special issue. It is expected that presenters of about 100 CHISA lectures and posters will be approached after the Congress closure (before 20 September 2020) with the pre-nomination appeal. The gate for submissions of manuscripts will be open since 21 September 2020 for the next five weeks. About 35 outstanding papers will be then selected from pre-nominations on the basis of the standard peer review process. Editor of this special issue will be B. Böck (Editor-in-chief, DE) together with L. Obalová (Guest Editor, CZ).
