On behalf of the organising committee, it is with great pleasure that I invite you to participate in CHEMECA 2011 to be held in Sydney. This annual conference series represents the premier gathering of chemical engineers and scientists from Australia, New Zealand and Asia. The event places strong emphasis on the attendance of and presentations by leaders in the chemical engineering and science fields. CHEMECA 2011's technical program will emphasise the key roles played by chemical engineers and scientists in developing more sustainable technologies vital to humanity.

Given current global concerns regarding sustainable management of energy, resources and our environment, CHEMECA 2011 - "Engineering a Better World" will be a pivotal forum for stimulating interactions and discussions regarding strategically important technologies. The occasion will also encourage networking between Australian and International researchers and industries, help to strengthen existing research collaborations and provide the potential for new partnerships to be forged.

I am looking forward to seeing you all in Sydney in September 2011

Rose Amal
