Welcome to the 17th International Congress on Catalysis

The Organizing Committee warmly invites you to participate in the 17th International Congress on Catalysis (ICC) to be held in San Diego, California on June 14-19, 2020. This congress is the premier technical gathering of our international communities of practice in surface and organometallic catalysis, industrial homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, electrocatalysis, photocatalysis, and catalysis in condensed media. This meeting brings together participants from academia, industry, and national laboratories, with a tradition and an expressed goal of nurturing interdisciplinary discourse and of mentoring students and young researchers.

This Congress has been held every four years under the auspices of the International Association of Catalysis Societies since its first meeting in Philadelphia in 1956. This 17th ICC is sponsored and organized by the North American Catalysis Society  and its members, who welcome all of you, as students and practitioners of catalysis, to present your most significant work. As the Meeting Chair, I am indebted to a dedicated and talented cadre of colleagues for their service as part of the Organizing Committee. They have prepared for us an exciting technical program, a series of tutorials and workshops, and some social and networking activities, all of which will provide ample opportunities for scientific exchanges and personal contacts with colleagues and friends. We also acknowledge the generous financial support of our sponsors, which account for nearly 20% of the costs incurred in holding this 17th ICC.

This meeting brings together our community to share technical progress and challenges among the more than 2,000 participants through 4 plenary and award lectures and about 30 keynote addresses presented by some of most eminent scientists in the field, approximately 600 oral presentations and 1,200 posters, selected from the nearly 2,400 abstracts submitted for consideration (Technical Program).

Our global catalysis community has developed the science, the enabling tools, and the engineering foundations needed to address the formidable challenges that we face as we strive to improve the quality of life for everyone while protecting our natural resources and our environment for future generations. We send this invitation to the entire international catalysis community to come together to continue in this endeavor — sharing knowledge, bridging intellectual gaps, advancing our science, celebrating the achievements of our most accomplished members — and in building new collaborations and friendships.

Welcome on behalf of the 17th ICC Organizing Committee and the North American Catalysis Society. Enjoy the science, the sharing among friends and colleagues, and the gathering of our extended catalysis family. We look forward to your contributions and participation in this 17th ICC and to seeing all of you in San Diego.

Workshops

Several educational workshops on technical topics will be offered on the first day of the Congress, Sunday June 14, 2020. Registration for workshops will be available through the Congress registration portal. We encourage you to consider participation in the Sunday Workshops and Panel Sessions which offer in-depth discussion on the following topics.
    Workshop | Fundamentals of Electrocatalysis
    Sunday, June 14, 8‎:‎30‎ ‎AM-‎11‎:‎30‎ ‎AM
    Cost - $50

    Facilitator: Gerardine G. Botte (Texas Tech University)

    This workshop will cover an introduction to fundamental aspects of electrochemistry and how to relate those to electrocatalysis. Participants will learn about differences between chemical and electrochemical reactions, overpotential, experimental considerations in electrocatalysis, recognizing and interpreting experimental data needed to determine electrochemical reaction rates, types of electrode architectures, examples of electrokinetics models, and will perform electrokinetics calculations. This is an active learning workshop. Participants are expected to bring a laptop. Excel and open source software maybe used during the workshop.
    Workshop | Presenting Research
    Workshop | Fundamentals of Catalyst Characterization
    Sunday, June 14, 8‎:‎30‎ ‎AM-‎11‎:‎30‎ ‎AM
    Cost - $50

    Facilitators: Roel Prins (ETH-Zurich), Hans Niemantsverdriet (TU-Eindhoven)

    Presenting scientific research in an efficient way requires a crystal clear message tailored to a specific audience. This is equally true for talks and posters at conferences, and for scientific publications. In this course the lecturers go through the principles of presentations, by discussing the common mistakes presenters and authors often make, and by giving recommendations for effective and successful presentation of their work, in spoken or written form. Both lecturers (Roel Prins, Hans Niemanstverdriet) have a long experience as conference organizers and as Editors of the Journal of Catalysis. The course is intended for junior scientists (PhD students, Postdocs and Early Career Researchers).
    Sunday, June 14, 8‎:‎30‎ ‎AM-‎11‎:‎30‎ ‎AM
    Cost - $50

    Facilitators: Annette Trunschke (Fritz-Haber-Institut der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft), Robert Schlögl (Fritz-Haber-Institut der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft), Charles T. Campbell (University of Washington), Xinhe Bao (State Key Laboratory of Catalysis, Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences)

    The workshop deals with basic and advanced methods for analysis of structural and electronic properties of catalyst precursors and the dynamics of the catalyst surface in the working state. The rate is given by the ability of the catalyst to activate reactants on its surface. The active surface sites are frequently minority species (defects, impurities), difficult to detect in presence of chemically similar spectator species. In addition, the active sites show a dynamic response to the chemical potential of the gas phase. Therefore, catalysts need to be studied under operation. The workshop provides an introduction into basic concepts of operando and complementary adsorption techniques applied in advanced characterization of heterogeneous catalysts. At the beginning of the workshop a brief survey of the general workflow in catalyst characterization is given followed by three lectures. The following topics are included:

    - Description of bulk (X-ray diffraction) and local structures at the atomic scale (electron microscopy) quasi in situ and under reacting environments.

    - Analysis of the electronic structure of solids and catalyst surfaces as well as the detection of minority species by in situ and operando techniques, such as ambient pressure photoelectron spectroscopy (AP-XPS), near edge x-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS), UV/VIS/NIR, and resonance Raman spectroscopy.

    - Investigation of catalyst surfaces by adsorption of probe molecules, reactants and intermediates using infrared and UV/Vis/NIR spectroscopy and adsorption calorimetry.
    Workshop | Theory, Applications and Tools for Multiscale Kinetic Modeling
    Sunday, June 14, 8‎:‎30‎ ‎AM-‎4‎:‎30‎ PM
    Cost - $75

    Facilitators: Dion Vlachos (University of Delaware), Michail Stamatakis (University College London), Matteo Maestri (Politecnico di Milano), Mauro Bracconi (Politechnico di Milano), Bharat Medasani (University of Delaware), and Gerhard Wittreich (University of Delaware)

    8:30 AM - 11:30 AM

    Part I: This workshop will focus on mean field kinetic models and their integration with computational fluid dynamics (CFD). First, the fundamentals of microkinetic models will be discussed. This will entail description of inputs and outcomes, reaction network generation, estimation of kinetic model parameters, mean field microkinetic modeling, descriptor-based microkinetic modeling for catalyst discovery, model analytics, and their integration with CFD. Available software will be reviewed.

    1:30 PM - 4:30 PM

    Part II: This workshop will focus on kinetic Monte Carlo (KMC) models and their integration with computational fluid dynamics (CFD). First, the fundamentals of stochastic processes will be discussed and examples will be illustrated. Limitations of mean field models will be briefly discussed. Methods to integrate KMC models into CFD will also be discussed. Available software will be reviewed.
    Workshop | Computational Catalysis Workshop
    Sunday, June 14, 1‎:‎30‎ ‎PM-‎4‎:‎30‎ ‎PM
    Cost - $50

    Facilitator: Matt Neurock (University of Minnesota)

    The tremendous advances in the theoretical methods and computing power that have occurred over the past decade have helped to make computational catalysis an invaluable tool in understanding and designing catalytic systems. The workshop is aimed at fostering the use of quantum chemical methods and molecular simulation of catalytic reaction systems. The workshop will combine presentations along with hands-on tutorials and demonstrations. Participants are asked to bring along their laptops. The workshop will include:

    - Benefits and Challenges Overview of the capabilities and limitations of Computational Catalysis with focus on realistic expectations of the accuracy, types of problems that can be studied, and time frames necessary to obtain meaningful results. The role of Computational Catalysis in today’s industry landscape is also discussed.

    - A brief introduction to the underlying methods, approximations and algorithms used in multiscale modeling of catalytic reactions: Ab initio quantum chemical wave-function and density functional theory methods, Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics simulations and descriptor-based catalyst screening. An overview on the application of these methods to catalytic reactions over metals, metal oxides, zeolites and other materials will be given.

    - Hands-on guided tutorials will be given to demonstrate the use of first principle quantum chemical methods to gain fundamental insight into surface phenomena in heterogeneous catalytic reactions.
    Workshop | Advancing Catalysis Research with X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy
    Sunday, June 14, 1‎:‎30‎ ‎PM-‎4‎:‎30‎ ‎PM
    Cost - $50

    Facilitators: Simon Bare (Stanford Linear Accelerator Center), Maarten Nachtegaal (Paul Scherrer Institut) and Adriano Braga (Universidade de São Paulo), Adam Hoffman (Stanford Linear Accelerator Center) and Jiyun Hong (Stanford Linear Accelerator Center)

    This hands-on workshop will cover important aspects of the application of X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) as applied to the catalyst researcher. The workshop content will enable the researcher to have a firm grasp of how the technique might aid their own research, and why they should consider incorporating it into their research program. The workshop will include:

    - An introduction to XAS and the information content that the technique provides
    - Details of sample preparation and experimental pitfalls
    - How to collect an XAS spectrum – including what is a beamline, what detectors should be used, and how to set up collecting a spectrum. We will collect XAS data in real-time for a metal oxide sample from a beam line at SSRL
    - The major concepts involved in data processing and data analysis. Due to the time allotted to this workshop we will not delve deeply into data analysis or any one particular topic and we recommend this workshop for those interested in learning about XAS or those just starting to use XAS in their research. There are many week-long EXAFS schools that serve this purpose.
    Workshop | Fundamentals of Photocatalysis
    Sunday, June 14, 1‎:‎30‎ ‎PM-‎4‎:‎30‎ ‎PM
    Cost - $50

    Facilitators: Kazuhiro Takanabe (University of Tokyo) and Fuxiang Zhang (Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics)

    Photocatalysis is of great importance in energy conversion and environmental remediation. This study session is aimed at newcomers in the field, and will address fundamental aspects on how to examine and report photocatalytic and photoelectrochemical studies. We will discuss relevant phenomena that occur in different dimensions and timescales, and practical experimental techniques and efficiency calculations. We will also have an open Q&A session for participants.
    Workshop | Fundamentals of Catalyst Synthesis
    Sunday, June 14, 1‎:‎30‎ ‎PM-‎4‎:‎30‎ ‎PM
    Cost - $50

    Facilitators: John Regalbuto (University of South Carolina) and Petra de Jongh (Utrecht University)

    In this workshop, the most common methods of supported nanoparticle synthesis will be reviewed. Several classical and newer methods including incipient wetness impregnation and electrostatic adsorption will be discussed in depth. A hybrid of incipient wetness impregnation and electrostatic adsorption, termed “charge enhanced dry impregnation” will be described. Electrostatic adsorption will be extended to the controlled synthesis of supported bimetallic and dilute limit alloy nanoparticles. These methods are readily applicable at laboratory scale and can in principle be easily scaled.
    Panel Discussion | Presenting Research
    Sunday, June 14, 1‎:‎30‎ ‎PM-‎4‎:‎30‎ ‎PM
    Cost - $20

    Facilitators: Haichao Liu (Peking University, Journal of Catalysis), Josephine Hill (University of Calgary, Applied Catalysis A: General), Ding Ma (Peking University, ACS Catalysis) and Jesse Hensley (National Renewable Energy Laboratory)

    This session will consist of a panel of senior researchers and journal editors to provide their perspectives and advice on delivering effective presentations, and writing clear and concise scientific manuscripts. Panelists will begin by presenting some material, followed by an open-ended Q&A session with the audience. Any and all participants are welcome.
