The organizers, on behalf of the Italian Zeolites Association and Interdivisional Catalysis Group, extend a cordial invitation to all colleagues in the field of catalysis, zeolites and ordered porous materials to attend the AIZ 2019 Congress (XVI National Congress of Zeolites Science and Technology) joint with the 8th Czech-Italian-Spanish Conference on Molecular Sieves and Catalysis, and with the GIC 2019 Congress (XXI National Congress of Catalysis) which will be held from 11th to 14th June, 2019 in Amantea (CS), Italy.

The AIZ-CIS-GIC Jointly Meeting 2019 will honor a great Italian Scientist, Dr. Giuseppe Bellussi (Senior Vice President R&D Energy Transition Program in the Development, Operations & Technology division of the Eni Company)  who gave a fundamental contribution in the field of Zeolite Science and Technology.

The meeting aims to gather together scientists involved in the wide domains of zeolite and ordered porous materials science at the international level, particularly within the framework of the cooperation between research groups from Czech Republic, Italy and Spain. In view of the success of the past CIS Conferences, this meeting will focus on recent developments in synthesis, characterization, computational and theoretical aspects, and related investigations of porous materials, ranging from natural to synthesized zeolites, mesostructured materials and metal-organic-frameworks (MOFs), employed in adsorption and catalysis, engineering applications and other novel applications.

Selected papers chosen by the Organizing Committee will be invited to submit a full paper to the special issue of Catalysis Today (I.F. 2017=4:55, I.F. 2018 updated to February 11, 2019 = 4.70). The paper will be accepted after the Catalysis Today regular peer-review procedure. People interested in the publication can write to Prof. Jiri Cejka (Questo indirizzo email è protetto dagli spambots. È necessario abilitare JavaScript per vederlo.) in order to receive an invitation letter.

Publication schedule:

  • Submission open: May 1st 2019
  • Deadline for paper submission: June 30th, 2019
  • Review completion: October 30th, 2019
  • Deadline for final/accepted papers: November 30th, 2019

A very sad update: Carlo Lamberti from the University of Turin, Italy, passed away on February 1, 2019. 
Professor Lamberti is worldwide recognized for his impressive contribution to the applications of spectroscopy and synchrotron radiation techniques to the understanding of zeolite-based catalysts and catalytic processes. A micro-symposium in memory of Carlo Lamberti, highlighting his scientific legacy, will be convened at the joint meeting by Carlo’s collaborators and former students from Turin University.

We are looking forward to an interesting and fruitful meeting.

Don’t miss the AIZ-CIS-GIC Jointly Meeting in Amantea, Italy!
