Dear PowerPlant Chemistry readers:
Summer has definitely arrived in the northern hemisphere – it's time to take at least a few days off work
to spend time with your family and friends. Our editorial team will do the same – getting our heads free
of work and reloading our batteries, to be ready for the second half of the year.
I would like to remind you about several conferences and meetings which are being supported or
organized by our journal.
In Bangkok as well as in Dubai we are organizing a two-day forum where invited keynote speakers will
present case studies from power plants all around the world. The calls for papers for both events have
closed, and with the submissions received we have put together a very interesting initial agenda for
each of the two events. The initial agendas have been published on our webpage and can be found in
this issue as well, on page 193 for the PPCHEM Forum in Bangkok and on page 195 for the PPCHEM Forum
in Dubai. For those who have missed the calls for papers: we are already planning new events for next
year; if you wish to learn more about abstract submittal for future events, please contact me directly.
As reported in the last issue, the International Conference on Film Forming Amines and Products was
held in Lucerne from April 3 to 6. IAPWS and its Steering Committee have already confirmed the Second
International Conference on Film Forming Amines and Products, which is now definitely scheduled from
March 20 to 22, 2018, in Prague, Czech Republic. Please find the first announcement and call for papers
on page 225 of this issue. If you missed the first meeting of this event series, it is now time to send in your
submission – and of course already reserve the date.
Another conference series I would like to mention here is the annual meetings of the European HRSG
Forum (EHF). PowerPlant Chemistry is the media partner of this event series and I highly recommend
that all of our readers working with HRSGs (be it in operations at a power plant or otherwise) attend and
share their knowledge with their colleges and experts from all over the world. This year's meeting took
place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on May 16 to 18, 2017 – a short report on this year's event can be
found on page 223. The first announcement and call for papers for the meeting next year can be found
on page 224.
As we can't have our eyes and ears everywhere, it is possible that we might overlook one event or another;
if you think that there is an important event missing from our events calendar, please let us know!
I'm looking forward to your letters and e-mails!
