Message from Student Organizers

On behalf of the undergraduate and graduate student organizing committees, we are pleased to invite you to the XXIX Interamerican Congress of Chemical Engineering Incorporating the 68th Canadian Chemical Engineering Conference to be held in Toronto, Ontario on October 28 – October 31, 2018.

The conference theme, Engineering for a Healthy and Sustainable World, aims to gather thought leaders and designers of chemical processes and technologies that will address the need for effective process engineering while reducing the environmental footprint. We are organizing a series of workshops, talks and an industry tour to raise awareness of current and impending practices, policies, challenges and technologies in chemical engineering. We are also organizing a number of competitions designed to help you advance your presentation and teamwork skills. Take advantage of these programs to network, to ask questions and to participate in social and technical events for personal growth and for career exploration.

We look forward to seeing you in the wonderful city of Toronto, and we wish you a productive and enjoyable conference.
