Dear PowerPlant Chemistry readers:
Finally, the production of the latest issue has come to an end. During its production, we have had several delays and therefore haven't been able to meet
our editorial schedule – we apologize to all of you for the delays and promise to do better again in the future.
In the past weeks, several conferences have taken place; an important recent conference was the annual meeting of the International Association for the
Properties of Water and Steam (IAPWS) in Kyoto, Japan, from August 27 to September 1, 2017. The press release of the event is published on page 279 of this issue.
A more detailed report on the Power Cycle Chemistry Working Group Meeting of IAPWS will follow in the next issue.
As announced in recent issues, the PowerPlant Chemistry Journal organized two PPCHEM Forums – one in Bangkok (October 11 and 12) and one in Dubai
(October 15 and 16). Detailed reports will follow in the next issue, but I would just like to briefly comment here that I'm happy with the number of
participants and with the general outcome of both events. We are already planning a similar event in India next year; we will keep you updated regarding the
venue and dates in this journal.
Please let me use my space here to remind you about several conferences of which the PowerPlant Chemistry Journal is the media partner. Several calls for papers
and first announcements are published in this issue; there are two I would like to particularly mention here:
First I would like to call your attention to the Second International Conference on Film Forming Amines and Products, which is now definitely scheduled for
March 20 to 22, 2018, in Prague, Czech Republic. Please find the first announcement and call for papers on page 253 of this issue.
The second conference series I would like to mention here is the annual meetings of the European HRSG Forum (EHF). The first announcement and call for papers for
next year's meeting can be found on page 254.
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!
