Creating a Bio4Energy Graduate School, Skellefteå, Sweden, 21 November 2012
of Bio4Energy has been putting together a working group which is to "make concrete plans to implement the entire research school with workshops and courses". To get started she would like for the working group to meet at Skellefteå where discussions will centre around "the coming steps". To join the meeting as a member of the working group, please fill in the doodle that she sent: http://doodle.com/yf7crk5nym2zpcrc

Workshop on Gasification Modelling, Luleå, Sweden, 21 November 2012
The Swedish Centre for Biomass Gasification
(SFC) consists of three research nodes that focuses on three different gasification principles. Regardless of gasification principle there are certain aspects of the conversion of fuel particles and gas phase reactions that are the same. However, each gasification principle presents a unique set of challenges for the modelling researcher. This workshop is intended to bring together specialists and engineers with an interest in modelling and to create an environment for the sharing knowledge that hopefully will speed up the development of gasification models. The workshop has two parts, the first focusing on the microscopic details of fuel conversion and the gas phase reactions (sub models). The second targets the macroscopic behavior of the different reactor types (reactor models). The workshop will be made up of presentations and a discussion about the models and sub models.
Workshop dinner. All participants are invited to join a dinner on the evening before the workshop.
