Description

Computer-aided process engineering (CAPE) plays a key design and operations role in the process industries, from the molecular scale through managing complex manufacturing sites. The research interests cover a wide range of interdisciplinary problems related to the current needs of society and industry. ESCAPE 23 brings together researchers and practitioners of computer-aided process engineering interested in modeling, simulation and optimization, synthesis and design, automation and control, and education. The proceedings present and evaluate emerging as well as established research methods and concepts, as well as industrial case studies.

Key Features

  • Contributions from the international community using computer-based methods in process engineering
  • Reviews the latest developments in process systems engineering
  • Emphasis on industrial and societal challenges

Readership

Researchers and practitioners of computer-aided process engineering, chemical engineers
