Chemical Engineering and Safety Communities to Unite Online at AIChE’s Virtual Spring Meeting & 17th Global Congress on Process Safety Apr. 18–23


Chemical engineers, company leaders, and process safety professionals will discuss trending topics and emerging technologies in the chemical process industries (CPI) when AIChE and its Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) host the 2021 AIChE Virtual Spring Meeting and 17th Global Congress on Process Safety, Apr. 18–23. For the second year, the conference will be delivered using an online platform.

The Spring Meeting is AIChE’s largest annual event for chemical engineering practitioners, with its programming encompassing topics from the fundamental to the future-focused. Among the highlights of the Spring Meeting’s technical program is a new topical conference devoted to industrial wastewater management and water reuse. The program also continues its recent focus on chemical engineering’s role in smart and advanced manufacturing, incorporating topics related to process intensification, Industry 4.0, and big data analytics. Returning conferences include the biennial Kister Distillation Symposium and the 33rd Ethylene Producers’ Conference. Programming by AIChE’s technical divisions and forums is supplemented by topical conferences exploring refinery processing, gas utilization, clean energy, hydrogen safety, waste plastics, upstream engineering and flow assurance, leadership-skills development, and more.

Registration fees have been reduced to reflect the virtual format. Among the benefits afforded by the online meeting platform, the technical program will be recorded and sessions can be revisited for one month after the meeting. A new feature will allow virtual conference attendees to maintain a personal schedule on the meeting platform, and to integrate it with their preferred calendars.

The technical content at the Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety is enhanced by an array of keynote talks, panel discussions, poster sessions, and exhibits. Unopposed program blocks are being set aside each day exclusively for networking — based on themes both informative and entertaining. Participants in networking events will be able to “jump” from table to table in order to mingle with colleagues and friends, old and new.
