ISHA next international conference


The ISHA conference is biannually held around the world and aims to bring together a significant number of participants for presentation within the conference program. The presentation will run to disseminate advances in solvothermal and hydrothermal science and technology. With its high quality providing an exceptional value for students, academics and industry researchers.

Solvothermal and hydrothermal research have attracted the attention of many active researchers because of their advantages in the processing of nanostructured materials and their wide variety of technological applications.

The ISHA was founded at the Joint Meeting of the 8th International Symposium on Hydrothermal Reactions (ISHR) and 7th International Conference on Solvothermal Reactions (ICSTR) in Sendai in August 2006. At this Joint meeting, it was decided that a new international association would be formed. The coalition ISHR and ICSTR would be joined into one prominent association, namely International Solvothermal and Hydrothermal Association (ISHA).

International Symposiums and Conferences on Hydrothermal and Solvothermal Reactions were held once in every 2 or 3 years in different countries. This Joint event aimed to offer an opportunity for researchers from all over the world to exchange scientific ideas and to promote the basic and applied aspects of research in hydrothermal and solvothermal technology.

The 1st ISHA meeting was held in Nottingham (September 2008), followed by Beijing (September 2010), Austin (Jan 2013), Bordeaux (2015) and Taiwan (January 2016). The ISHA2018 conference held in Sendai (August 2018) will focus on science and technology under various reaction environments, including high-pressure solvents/water, supercritical fluids, ionic liquids, and related mediums. The purpose of the ISHA2018 conference is to provide a forum for the scientists, engineers and researchers of the world.

ISHA meetings aim to move between the Americas, Europe and Asia to enable maximum attendance. According to the ISHA rotation statement, the next ISHA 2022 is programmed to move to Europe. The call for formal proposals for organizing this prestigious event is open to all the delegates registered within the ISHA International Advisory Committee from European Countries. The proposal document from those European members will be reviewed by the ISHA International board committee and discussed during the ISHA meeting during the ISHA 2020 conference. The announcement of the next European Country Organizing the meeting will proceed during the ISHA 2020 banquet dinner celebration. The application deadline is open until next April 15th, and the proposal can be submitted to the ISHA president Prof Tadafumi Adschiri and the ISHA 2020 Chairman. Proposal preparation guidelines are available in the next link.
