The Center for Chemical Process Safety International Conference (CCPS) is one of four parallel symposia that comprise The Global Congress on Process Safety (GCPS). Organized by volunteers from industry and academia, the CCPS conference promotes process safety by identifying emerging process safety issues and advancing leading process safety management practices. The final conference agenda will consist of nine sessions, each with at least 25-minutes presentations. Papers are selected by session chairs based on an abstract of 100- 200 words. The abstract must offer a brief account of the contents, conclusions, and the relevance to the topic area. Submitted abstracts must include the author, their affiliation, full address, email, and phone number. The papers will be published in the GCPS proceedings. Abstracts will be accepted online until October 11, 2013.
