The aim of the conference was to familiarize the participants with the latest chemical knowledge and to discuss further directions of development of modern chemical industry and research. The possible solutions of lack of chemists in relation to chemical education, certain "chemophobia" in current information society and excessive administration were also discussed.
At the conference, the contest for the best poster of researchers under the age of 35 years was held. Topicality, difficulty and quality were the selection criteria. The expert committee awarded the best 3 of 28 competing posters.
Our employee Adam Karaba and his poster with the theme of Economic Optimization of Steam-Cracking Operation was one of the awarded researchers. Congratulations!
