April 2018 - Editorial

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!
