It is our pleasure to welcome you to the 31st International Symposium on
Computer Aided Process Engineering (ESCAPE-31) in Istanbul on June 6–9,
2021. The purpose of the meeting is to bring together the community of
researchers and practitioners in the area of computer-aided process systems
engineering from academia and industry. ESCAPE-31 will focus on the
following main themes:

Theme 1: Process-product synthesis, design and integration

Theme 2. Methods, models and computational tools for PSE

Theme 3. Process control and operations

Theme 4. CAPE/PSE in energy/water/food nexus and sustainability

Theme 5. Process operations and supply chains

Theme 6. PSE in biological systems and processes

Theme 7. Education in CAPE/PSE & knowledge transfer

Accepted papers will be published in Computer Aided Chemical Engineering by

The ESCAPE series follows a two-stage evaluation process: the first stage
requires abstracts that are limited to a maximum of 3,000 characters
including spaces, numbers and punctuation marks, the second stage requires
6-page papers that will be published in Computer Aided Chemical Engineering
by Elsevier after acceptance of the paper.  The ESCAPE-31 website (
http://escape31.org/) includes abstract and paper submission templates in
MS Word and LaTeX.

All papers will be reviewed by the Programming Committee and a very limited
number of papers will be moved from regular submission to keynote paper.  Work
presented at the conference will be published (following usual ESCAPE
policies) in a new volume of Computer Aided Chemical Engineering book
series from Elsevier. Extended papers will be published in a special issue
of Computers and Chemical Engineering,
