Invitation to International Conference on Hydrogen Production (ICH2P-11)

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend the 2011 International Conference on Hydrogen Production (ICH2P-11), to be held in Thessaloniki, Greece, from 19 – 22 June 2011 at the Science Center and Technology Museum “NOESIS”.

The conference will have particular value and interest to researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners who are working in the field of hydrogen production technologies, ranging from policy making and technical development to management and marketing.

It will provide a forum for the exchange of latest advances and technical information, dissemination of new research developments in the areas of hydrogen production and usage and presentations involving the future directions and priorities in the hydrogen economy for a sustainable future.

The 2011 International Conference on Hydrogen Production is organized under the auspices of the Ministry of Environment, Energy & Climate Change, by the Chemical Process Engineering Research Institute (CPERI/CERTH). ICH2P-11 will have a similar structure, as past ICH2Ps and it will include keynote lectures and two parallel oral sessions. The language of the Conference will be English.

The themes of the conference will cover technical topics ranging from the use of renewable energy sources, to conversion of fossil fuels and use of nuclear power for hydrogen production. Special emphasis will be on new and promising technologies that may provide clean and cost effective hydrogen for widespread commercial applications.  Developed and developing technologies employing renewable energy sources e.g. solar and solar – thermochemical systems, photochemical systems, as well as gasification of biomass and coal and other thermochemical systems will be included.

To extend beyond technical areas, the social aspects of hydrogen (policy making, hydrogen infrastructure development, environmental concerns, regulatory actions, standards development, safety, storage, commercialization, education and training) will be covered. Therefore, papers on related topics are solicited from all relevant disciplinary areas, including new concepts, modeling, experiments, and simulations.

The ICH2P-11 web site (www.ich2p.org) contains all the information you may need for participating to the upcoming conference.

Full papers will be published after reviewing in an open access journal.

Papers will be presented in oral sessions. High quality papers of archival value will be considered in extended form for publication in various reputable international journals, e.g. International Journal of Hydrogen Energy, International Journal of Energy Research, International Journal of Energy, and International Journal of Global Warming.

Feel free to contact the Organizing Committee and the Local Advisory Group if you need any additional information.

We look forward to see and welcome you all in Thessaloniki in June 2011!
