The Vayenas International Symposium on Physical Chemistry and its Applications for Sustainable Development, is dedicated to honoring the lifetime achievements of Prof. Constantinos Vayenas, a renowned figure in the field of Physical Chemistry and beyond. This symposium will be held as part of 2019 Sustainable Industrial Processing Summit (SIPS 2019), a yearly event that is deeply science-focused and industrial engineering-oriented, organized by the not-for-profit corporation FLOGEN Stars Outreach (www.flogen.org), which is dedicated to achieving sustainability through science and technology. It incorporates summit plenary lectures from well-known speakers that address the link between scientific and engineering domains in the pursuit of sustainable development, as well as specific science and engineering symposia that feature technical presentations with the same goals in mind. The symposium and overall summit is planned to be held in Cyprus from 23-27 October 2019.
