McMaster University Chemical Engineering Conference 2017

We are pleased to announce the McMaster University Chemical Engineering Conference (MUCEC), occurring this year on Tuesday 11 April at the McMaster Innovation Park (MIP), Hamilton, ON. The event will provide an opportunity for the university’s graduate students to present their research progress to their colleagues and the department faculty, as well as to attend a keynote presentation given by a distinguished alumnus of the department.

Students will also have the chance to compete for the A.E. Hamielec Award, a prestigious award honouring Dr. Archie Hamielec that represents the department’s commitment to academic communication, as well as departmental awards for the Graduate Student Poster Competition, supported by Reaction Chemistry & Engineering and Molecular Systems Design & Engineering.

Keynote speaker: Dr Laura Wells, (Queen’s University, Canada)

This event is free to attend for all McMaster University students. To find out more, visit the website here.

Outstanding Reviewers for Reaction Chemistry & Engineering in 2016

Following the success of Peer Review Week in September 2016 (dedicated to reviewer recognition) during which we published a list of our top reviewers, we are delighted to announce that we will continue to recognise the contribution that our reviewers make to the journal by announcing our Outstanding Reviewers each year.

We would like to highlight the Outstanding Reviewers for Reaction Chemistry & Engineering in 2016, as selected by the editorial team, for their significant contribution to the journal. The reviewers have been chosen based on the number, timeliness and quality of the reports completed over the last 12 months.

We would like to say a big thank you to those individuals listed here as well as to all of the reviewers that have supported the journal. Each Outstanding Reviewer will receive a certificate to give recognition for their significant contribution.

Dr Duncan Browne, Cardiff University
Dr Antimo Gioiello, Universita degli Studi di Perugia
Professor Christian Goldsmith, Auburn University
Dr Ryan Hartman, New York University
Professor Christian Oliver Kappe, Universitat Graz
Dr Amy Mueller, MIT
Dr Antonio Perazzo, Università di Napoli Federico II
Professor Bert Weckhuysen, Universiteit Utrecht
Dr Charlotte Wiles, Chemtrix
Dr Jun Yue, University of Groningen

We would also like to thank the Reaction Chemistry & Engineering board and the reaction engineering community for their continued support of the journal, as authors, reviewers and readers.

If you would like to become a reviewer for our journal, just email us with details of your research interests and an up-to-date CV or résumé.  You can find more details in our author and reviewer resource centre.
