Process Systems Engineering (PSE) Conference - 2000

PSE 2000 is the seventh in the triennial series of international symposia on process systems engineering initiated in 1982. The purpose of the meeting was to bring together the community of researchers and practitioners who are involved in the creation and application of computing-based methodologies for planning, design, operation, control; and maintenance of chemical processes. The special focus of PSE meetings is on the integration of the enabling technologies and application domains to address the special needs of the chemical process industries. Particular emphasis is given to the interfaces between application domains and the adaptation of process systems methodologies to nontraditional problem areas.

The composition of the meeting was international by design, with representation from the three main geographic zones of Asia and the Pacific, Europe and Africa, and the Americas. The conference was initiated by the Executive Committee of the Process Systems Engineering Symposium Series which draws its representation from the Asian Pacific Confederation of Chemical Engineering, the European Federation of Chemical Engineering, and the Inter American Confederation of Chemical Engineering. In keeping with the international scope of the conference series, the previous conferences were held in Trondheim, Norway (1997), Kyongju, Korea (1994), Montebello, Canada (1991), Sydney, Australia (1988), Cambridge, England (1985), and Kyoto, Japan (1982). PSE 2000 constitutes the first instance in the conference series to be convened in the USA.

The program features five keynote and 15 plenary papers, as well as 215 regular conference papers. The plenary papers were selected by the International Program Committee from among the contributed papers on the basis of merit and relevance. The papers are organized in the following themes: Process Synthesis, Process Control, Planning & Scheduling, Modeling & Simulation, Product Development, Safety, Monitoring, & Fault Detection, Novel Systems Applications & Extensions, Control Integration & Applications, Process Operation & Optimization, Simulation & Design Applications, Education in Process systems Engineering, Operations & Optimization Applications.

The PSE conference series is conducted under the auspices of the Executive Committee for PSE, chaired by Professor I. Hashimoto, Kyoto University.  The Committee members are:

J. Perkins, Imperial College, United Kingdom
G. V. Rek1aitis, Purdue University, USA
S. Skogestad, Norwegian University of Science & Technology, Norway
K. S. Chang, Pohang University of Science & Technology, Korea
G. Sullivan, University of Waterloo, Canada
