Institute Organizing Two International Conferences in 2013

The EMS Energy Institute will play host to two large International conferences next year. The conferences are held biennially in various locations throughout the world. The Institute is excited to be the hosting organization as these conferences represent some of the most important events in their respective research areas.

International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization

The twelth International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization (ICCDU), will be held from June 23-27, 2013, in Alexandria, VA. Dr. Chunshan Song, director of the EMS Energy Institute and Distinguished Professor of Fuel Science, is the conference chair and is responsible for all of the conference details along with an organizing committee and a local arrangement committee.

ICCDU, which began in 1991 in Nagoya, Japan, provides a multi-disciplinary forum on recent innovations in fundamental and applied aspects of carbon dioxide utilization. In 2013, the focus will be on carbon dioxide conversion and utilization for chemicals, fuels, and materials for sustainable development. The goal of the conference is to facilitate the advances in carbon dioxide research and bring together the academic and industrial communities for the exchange of ideas, concepts, and innovations.

International Conference on Coal Science and Technology

Dr. Jonathan Mathews, assistant professor of energy and mineral engineering, and program director for the Institute’s coal science and technology program, is chairing the 2013 International Conference on Coal Science and Technology (ICCS&T). The conference will be held September 29 through October 3, 2013, at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center near the Penn State University Park Campus.

Next year marks the first time this conference will be held in Pennsylvania, which boasts a rich history in coal. More information on the conference will be available in the beginning of the year at www.iccst.info.
