On behalf of the organizing committee, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 7th International Solvothermal and Hydrothermal Association Conference (ISHA2020) held on Sep. 1st – 5th 2020 in Cancun QRO, MEXICO.

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. Since 2006, the ISHA series conferences were successfully held in Nottingham, Beijing, Austin, Bordeaux, Taiwan and Japan. The 7th ISHA2020 conference held in Cancun will focus on the relevant achievements in science and technology regardless various reaction environments including high-pressure solvents/water, supercritical fluids, ionic liquids, and related mediums. The purpose of the ISHA2020 conference is to provide a forum for the scientists, engineers and researchers of the world via a networking. ISHA2020 attempts to have an impact on sharing expertise in the latest innovations, advances and future multidisciplinary research with the primary focus on the connection between fundamental science, engineering applications and commercialization of products. This conference will cover wide-variety topics on solvothermal and hydrothermal research, as well as some topics including food science, waste disposal, characterization techniques, origin of life, mathematics and simulation, bioenergy, sustainable green chemistry process, among other related topics.

We are certain that your participation and presentations will enhance a networking for building new research collaboration, and to provide future ideas a great impression on the conference audiences. Finally, I hope all of you will enjoy the technical program and also enjoy your participation at the conference and in the Mexican Caribbean Sea of Cancun city.

Sincerely Yours

Juan Carlos Rendón-Angeles
