Call for Papers

Praise Worthy Prize organizes the
4th Conference on Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials VIRTUAL FORUM (CEAM-VF), in November 12th - 26th, 2012.

The Conference has the same topics of the International Review of Chemical Engineering - Rapid Communications (IRECHE) and the International Steering Committee of the Conference is made up by members of the Editorial Board of IRECHE. The papers submitted for the Conference should respect the same rules following for a publication on IRECHE.

The best papers accepted for the Conference will be published also on a special issue of the International Review of Chemical Engineering - Rapid Communications (IRECHE) and therefore will be abstracted on the best databases. 

The 4th CEAM-VF aims to provide an international forum for exchange of ideas and future trends amongst researchers, students, consultants and practitioners.

Industry, research, and academia are cordially invited to participate in the wealth of presentations and tutorials for the advancement of science, technology, engineering education and fellowship.
