1st International Young Professionals Conference on Process Engineering


The International Young Professionals Conference on Process Engineering YCOPE 2019 is an initiative of PhD candidates of the International Max Planck Research School ProEng. YCOPE 2019 brings together students, experienced opinion makers, young and experienced professionals and innovators to discuss future aspects of Process Engineering and new opportunities to strengthen the connection betweenacademia and industry. As synergies can be obtained on theoretical, algorithmic, and even software-related areas, we are interested in fostering exchange, thus, paving the way for innovation out of apparently unrelated areas.
Confirmed guest speakers so far:

Dr. Timothy Nöel, Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands;
Dr. Ruth Misener, Imperial College, UK;
Dr. Samik Ghosh, The Systems Biology Institute, Japan;
Dr. Ing. Nico Zobel, Fraunhofer-Institute for Factory Operation and Automation, Magdeburg, Germany;
Dr. Robin J. White, Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE), Freiburg, Germany;
Dr. Seyed Soheil Mansouri, Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, Denmark.
The event is organized jointly by the International Max Planck Research School for Advanced Methods in Process and Systems Engineering (IMPRS ProEng), Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems, Otto von Guericke University, Magdeburg and Institute of Energy and Systems Process Engineering, TU Braunschweig.
Best peer-reviewed works can be published in a special edition of the Journal Processes – Open Access Journal of Chemical and Biological Process Engineering
