Dear colleagues and friends,

On the behalf of the Department of Chemical Engineering, Material and Industrial Production (DICMAPI) we are very proud to welcome each of you to the XX Summer School "Francesco Turco", to be held on September 16–18, 2015 at the Monumental Complex of St. Chiara, Naples, Italy.  In Naples for the first time, the “Francesco Turco“ Summer School will be a breeding ground of ideas and knowledge on Industrial and Mechanical Plants Design topics for two years. It will promote interaction and cooperation among researchers coming from different universities and enhancing, at once, the sense of belonging to the SSD ING-IND/17 (Industrial and Mechanical Plants).

If you have never been to Naples, this is also an opportunity for a trip you will remember your whole life. Unlike cities in which art is stored in museums and daily life happens on the streets, Naples's distinctive mark is its folklore: people living and working among the artistic beauties of the city. This aspect will characterize the 2015 edition indeed. The Complex of St. Chiara, with its overwhelming Majolica Cloister, will be the amazing theater of the XX Summer School "Francesco Turco".

As you can see from the website, this conference has long since become a traditional, well established meeting that gathers together renowned scientists and researchers from all over the continent. The 2015 Edition of the Summer School "Francesco Turco" continues the fruitful collaboration with our association AIDI, being a forum for the exchange of innovative scientific research tools and topics, and organised with European Academy on Industrial Management (AIM). AIM promotes networking both in scientific research and educational activities involving main IE&M schools in EHEA. The Academy’s mission is aligned with the outstanding schools of engineering worldwide.

In addition during this 2015 Naples Summer School edition, the 14th International Conference on Intelligent Software Methodologies, Tools and Techniques (SoMeT 2015) will be held on September 16-17, 2015 at the Monumental Complex of St. Chiara too, and we have organized a special session: "Production and Service Delivery supporting Intelligent Information Technologies”.

The special theme of this edition is “Operational Excellence Experience": in today’s competitive global marketplace, excellence is not an option, but it is essential to achieve success and global business competitiveness. We welcome the opportunity to further expand the ranks of the world’s effective global research by sharing our studies and expertise on your behalf.

Finally, we would like to thank each of your for attending  the Summer School  and bringing your expertise and kindness to our gathering since, it is You, members of our scientific association and conference participants, who will make the conference an “operational exceptional experience”.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee

Tina Santillo
