Dear PowerPlant Chemistry readers:
In these comments, I would particularly like to remind you about the conferences and meetings which
are being supported or organized by our journal throughout this year.
The first few months of this year haven't been too packed with big events yet, with some exceptions, of
course – most importantly the second International Conference on Film Forming Substances (FFS), which
was held on March 20–22, 2018, in Prague, Czech Republic. FFS2018 attracted about 70 participants
from 30 countries – please find the press release here.
The third FFS International Conference will be held in Athens, Greece, in March 2019; we will keep you updated and will publish the
call for papers and any other new information in this journal.
The other important event is the PowerPlant Chemistry Forum in Delhi, India, on November 22 and 23,
2018. The Forum will provide excellent insights into the latest developments in cycle chemistry, and
numerous examples from fossil, combined cycle, and nuclear plants from around the world will be
shared. The conference will consist of both invited and contributed technical papers – please find more
information in the call for papers here. The Forum will be of major interest to operational
personnel, technical managers, plant engineers, boiler operators, cycle and plant chemists, corrosion
scientists, and service providers, as well as manufacturers of components and chemicals. We are
looking forward to receiving many interesting submissions and suggestions for making this forum a
valuable and excellent event.
And finally, I would like to mention the Fifth Meeting of the EHF (European HRSG Forum) on May 15–17,
2018, in Bilbao, Spain. The Meeting will consist of long and short presentations, with the latter including
short plant updates or interesting recent experiences. There will be discussion periods on topics selected
by the participants. The detailed agenda can be found here.
I would like to remind you that only by continuing exchange with colleagues and experts in the field is it
possible to keep up-to-date with the ongoing developments in power plant chemistry. If you haven't
participated in these events in the past, I greatly encourage you to do so this year. The most important
events are listed in our events calendar; for many of the events you can find more detailed information
in the print issue.
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!
