The PSE'97 / ESCAPE-7 symposium was held in Trondheim,
Norway during 25-29 May 1997. It was a success, with more
than 400 delegates, of which about 150 were from industry.
This was the main world-wide event in
1997 in the area of chemical process systems engineering, covering
the areas of design and synthesis, control and
operations, modelling and simulation, and intelligent
From the more than 600 abstracts that were submitted for review,
an excellent technical program of about 200
papers was put together.
The symposium showed
that process systems engineering is by now becoming a mature field
with widespread industrial importance.
The proceedings of the conference are published in
Computers chem. Engng. , Vol. 21 , Supplement,
pp. S1-S1244 (1997). The page number in the session program
and author index refer to these proceedings.

We were very happy with the scientific quality of our proceedings published
in the Suppelement of Computers chem. Engng. , Vol. 21.
However, the six-page limitation obviously has its limits, and
some of the authors have already (Aug. 1997) been invited to submit full versions of
their papers to special issues of Comp.Chem.Engng. and J.Proc.Control
(expected publation late 1998). The authors of the remaining papers
are free to submit revised versions of their papers to other regular
journals (as long as they are sufficiently different, e.g. expanded in
length, so they do not conflict with usual copyright rules).
