The Center for Advanced Process Systems Engineering “CAPSE” is a multidisciplinary research group focused on the development of advanced computational methodologies for Process Industries and Service Companies. Its members are Researchers, Professors, PhD Students and Outstanding Engineering Students. CAPSE labs and offices are located in the city of Santa Fe (Argentine), at the INTEC Research Institute (CONICET – Universidad Nacional del Litoral).

Our main goals are:

• Understand and aid complex decision making processes arising in manufacturing and service sectors.

• Develop novel modeling methods and advanced optimization-simulation based solution strategies for complex problems in Process Systems Engineering.

CAPSE members acknowledge the support received from the Spanish Agency of International Cooperation for the Development (AECID), actions PCI D/024726/09, D/030927/10, and A1/044876/11.
