Dear colleagues and guests,

On behalf of Iranian Association of Chemical Engineers (IAChE), I would like to welcome you to the 11th International Chemical Engineering Congress and Exhibition. It is an exciting time for chemical engineers in industry and academia to meet and exchange new ideas. IAChE is confronting a time of many changes and we are meeting these changes during a time of larger nation-wide and global change. The world of chemical engineering is an exciting field to work/study/research, and we will continue to meet and bring inspired people together in forums like this, to ensure our association remains at the cutting edge.

I would like to thank each of your for attending our congress and exhibition and bringing your expertise to our gathering. You, as a participant, have the vision, the knowledge, the ability and the experience to help us pave our way into the future. Throughout this congress, I ask you to stay engaged, keep us proactive and help us shape the future of chemical engineering in the region. My personal respect and thanks goes out to all of you.

Navid Mostoufi
