ACS Editors Look Forward to China Symposia

Scientists will again come together for three days to present and discuss the latest scientific advances and participate in ample networking opportunities at China’s top research institutions.

ACS Publications will host ACS Publications Symposium: Innovation in Energy Conversion – A Physical Chemistry Perspective in Dalian, China from September 24-26, 2017 in partnership with Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (DICP) and the Collaborative Innovation Center of Chemistry for Energy Materials (iChEM). From October 22-24, 2017 in Shanghai, China, ACS Publications hosts ACS Publications Symposium: Innovation in Molecular Synthesis in partnership with the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry (SIOC), Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Early registration is open for 2017 ACS Publications Symposia. Don’t miss the opportunity to register early to get your discounted registration fee, membership to the American Chemical Society, and one free student ticket. Dalian early registration closes July 21.

Both events will have multiple ACS Editors on hand. Here’s what some of them had to say about these exciting upcoming events and the partnerships making them possible:

ACS Publications: Innovation in Energy Conversion – A Physical Chemistry Perspective

“The upcoming symposium on “Innovation in Energy Conversion” comes at an exciting time in several areas of energy science, with important advances in understanding catalytic mechanisms, new opportunities for battery materials, major improvement in theoretical models and methods, and new facilities for providing atomic-level information about materials and dynamical processes.  In addition, a significant amount of the new activity is happening in China, with Dalian being one of the most important centers, especially as relates to physical chemistry.  The support provided by the ACS, in partnership with institutions in China, to highlight this research is a fantastic opportunity for pushing this field forward.” – George Schatz, Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Physical Chemistry

“Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics is one of the premier research institutes in China, leading the research efforts in clean energy, catalysis and molecular reaction dynamics. Its success in bringing fundamental aspects of materials research to solve practical problems makes it a natural fit to host this symposium.” – Prashant V. Kamat, Editor-in-Chief of Energy Letters

ACS Publications Symposium: Innovation in Molecular Synthesis

I am looking forward to attending and lecturing at the “Innovation in Molecular Synthesis” symposium, both as an organic chemist and as Editor-in-Chief of Organic Letters.  The partnership between two leading organic chemistry journals, The Journal of Organic Chemistry and Organic Letters, and the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry (SIOC), a world-class research organization, will provide excellent opportunities to hear outstanding research presentations and to interact with organic chemistry researchers from China and around the world. – Amos B. Smith III, Editor-in-Chief of Organic Letters

“I am really looking forward to this conference, which is looking like a real celebration of the broad range and reach of organic chemistry.” – Scott J. Miller, Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Organic Chemistry
