ACS Publications hosted its inaugural Symposium in Beijing, China on October 23-25, 2016 in partnership with the Institute of Chemistry, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (ICCAS). We welcomed approximately 500 people to the three-day event, which featured lectures on the latest innovations in the molecular sciences by 20 of the world’s leading researchers. Attendees from over 15 different countries experienced ample opportunities for discussion and networking at poster sessions. At the exclusive “Meet the Speakers and Editors” event, guests learned about cutting edge research and how to get their work published from the experts. Outstanding abstracts were selected to be presented alongside top-tier researchers during the five plenary sessions.
ACS Publications is continuing their Symposium Series with two events in 2017. The first event will be held in Dalian, China from September 24-26 in partnership with Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (DICP) and the Collaborative Innovation Center of Chemistry for Energy Materials (iChEM). The two-day event will feature lectures on the theme, “Innovation in Energy Conversion – A Physical Chemistry Perspective.”
The symposium’s Organizing Committee includes Professor George C. Schatz, Editor-in-Chief, The Journal of Physical Chemistry A, B, and C and The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters; Professor Xueming Yang, Senior Editor, The Journal of Physical Chemistry and DICP; Professor Can Li, DICP/iChEM; Professor Tao Zhang, DICP; Professor Françoise Winnik, Editor-in-Chief, Langmuir; Professor Prashant V.
