CA Floudas Mathematical Optimization Award
The ESCAPE organizers are glad to announce a new award that is sponsored jointly by Processes and the ESCAPE conference to honor the legacy of Professor CA Floudas. The award will be granted to the candidate who addresses optimization problems demonstrating mathematical excellence, depth, and rigor in the proposed methods and algorithms.
The award will include 800 euros and a conference waiver. A jury of evaluators will review conference contributions and presentations to conclude and announce the winner on Wednesday, 21 June.

ESCAPE 33 WORKSHOPS
There is a maximum capacity for each workshop. Participants need to register in advance.
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
The 33rd European Symposium on Computer-Aided Process Engineering (ESCAPE-33) will take place in Athens from Sunday, June 18th to Wednesday, June 21st, 2023. The ESCAPE-33 event is organized under the auspices of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE Event No. 776), the CAPE Working Party (CAPE-WP), the Technical Chamber of Greece, the Pan Hellenic Association of Chemical Engineers, and the National Technical University of Athens.
The ESCAPE conference series accounts for essential and vital events that enjoy strikingly international audiences bringing together active members of the Process Systems Engineering community worldwide. The series started in 1992. Since then, the events have been hosted by most European countries including twice in Greece in earlier years (Rhodos: 1996, Porto Carras: 2011). Due to COVID-19 the series had to run as virtual events recently (Milano 2020, Istanbul 2021). They successfully returned to normal, face-to-face meeting in 2022 (Toulouse, France). For more details on the ESCAPE-series visit the CAPE Working Party website.
ESCAPE-33 anticipates emerging and significant challenges in Process Systems Engineering as these relate to the sustainable development of chemical processes, the development and the systematic evaluation of processing technologies and process innovations, and research promoting circular economy paradigms including social aspects and social engagement networks to incentivize and involve citizens. ESCAPE 33 recognizes particular importance to industrial biotechnology as a driver and enabler for new chemistries, alongside data engineering as a technological challenge with an apparent impact on many systems technologies.
It is anticipated that this conference would attract a significant number of people from academia, research institutions, and industrial organizations. The symposium, including several networking activities, would cover the most up-to-date topics related to Process Systems Engineering. Presentations given by distinguished European and other world-renowned plenary and keynote speakers would offer a cutting-edge to the symposium. The event will be coordinated with guided visits to major archeological sites and museums, cultural events in Athens, including options to attend theatrical performances at the Herod Atticus Odeon, and guided tours of the monuments that marked the contemporary face of Old Athens.
We’re looking forward to welcoming you in Athens!

ESCAPE’33 will be proud to release an early announcement of the George Stephanopoulos Process Systems Engineering Award. The announcement is scheduled at the Welcome Reception on Sunday at 5.15pm at the Olympia Hall of the conference venue.
The award honors Prof. Stephanopoulos whose work includes seminal contributions influential to the community that provided the broadest coverage of PSE approaches and methodologies in process synthesis and design (continuous and batch); computer-aided modeling languages; process control; fault detection and diagnosis; operations planning; product design; synthesis of reaction and metabolic networks; synthesis and design of petrochemical sectors; synthesis and design of biorefineries; synthesis and design of pharmaceutical processes; AI in process engineering (products, processes, control, operations), and most recently in systems applications for the circular economy. He has received all major distinctions for a person in PSE.
The George Stephanopoulos Award is co-sponsored by the National Technical University of Athens, Greece; the EFCE-CAPE Working Party; and the AIChE-CAST Division. Winners will be selected from next year between European and North American nominees in rotating years. Winners among European nominees will be selected by the EFCE-CAPE Working Party; winners among North American nominees will be selected by the AIChE-CAST Division.
The announcement will be made by the President of the European Federation of Chemical Engineers with representatives from NTUA (the Rector of the university), AIChE and the Chairs of the CAPE WP and CAST Division.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee,
Athens Panoramic Tour – Mon 19 Jun
Join to discover how this vivid city combines some of Greece’s greatest ancient treasures and the modern way of life!
This coach guided English speaking tour of top Athens sites, including the Greek Parliament, the Panathenaic Stadium, the Academy, the National Library, the National Archaelogical Museum, and many more, will give you the opportunity to explore Athens while enjoying the sunset in the Athenian sky.
We are happy to announce the 2024 edition of the Eurecha Student Contest Problem (SCP), sponsored by AVEVA.
The contest is organized by the European Committee for the Use of Computers in Chemical Engineering Education (EURECHA), with support by the CAPE Working Party and the Energy section of EFCE.
It is open to students from Bachelor through PhD level. The participating groups have to design and analyze a novel process converting carbon dioxide and renewable energy into chemical products, in the context of the host country of the next ESCAPE conference, Italy.
The awards include monetary prizes, invitations to present at ESCAPE or the CAPE Forum in 2024, and publication on the Eurecha website.
For further information, visit www.wp-cape.eu/index.php/student-contest-problem/ or contact Eurecha at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Organizing Committee has organized guided tours for the Acropolis Museum.
Tickets are limited. Ticket cost is covered by the conference budget.

CONF. ROOM II
The IRISS session in ESCAPE-33 aims to bring together IRISS, EFCE and ESCAPE communities, as well as, national and regional stakeholders, to discuss the Safe and Sustainable by Design (SSbD) framework and initiatives, their role and prospects in delivering sustainable processes and products. Under this perspective, the up-to-date results and achievements of the IRISS project, as well as the upcoming activities and events will be presented.
Who is it for
Lack of data has been publicly identified as a constraining bottleneck for an SSbD approach in research and innovation in the Chemical and Material Industry. In silico models are one of the most important tools to generate such data. This session addresses both worlds. For Systems practitioners: Full deployment of SSbD stands to benefit critically from systems-level design and re-design thinking, as exposed in ESCAPE-33. SSbD emerges as a priority application for systems tools. For SSbD practitioners: ESCAPE-33 hosts four themes with relevance to SSbD (Themes 1, 2, 3 & 7). These will open a window to a portfolio of tools and approaches for the SSbD community of IRISS.
Attendance is free, but registration is required for the session
Use the free registration form https://era.eventsair.com/escape-33/reg to reserve your place, as the session 's capacity will be 50 participants.
Workshop promoters: Daniel Lewin, Technion, and Edwin Zondervan, Twente
Workshop outcomes: Participants working in teams will complete a master plan for a complete course on one of three themes motivated by an invited talk from the conference. Each team will be mentored by the corresponding plenary/invited speaker:
The master plans will include:
Course participants are invited to review a short video describing how the flipped class is used to teach PSE subjects (recommended before attending ESCAPE-33):
The workshop capacity will be 30 participants (Up to 10 participants in each of the three teams).
