Pacifichem 2005

January 17, 2005 | A version of this story appeared in Volume 83, Issue 3

Chemists and chemical engineers in countries bordering the Pacific Ocean and elsewhere are invited to submit papers for the 2005 International Chemical Congress of Pacific Basin Societies (Pacifichem 2005). The congress will be held on Dec. 15–20 in Honolulu and is cosponsored by the American Chemical Society, the Chemical Society of Japan, the Canadian Society for Chemistry, the Korean Chemical Society, the New Zealand Institute of Chemistry, and the Royal Australian Chemical Institute. Many of the chemical societies in other countries that border the Pacific Ocean are official participating organizations.

The technical program of Pacifichem 2005 is being developed in 225 symposia spread over 11 areas of contemporary chemical science. The congress will also feature a plenary lecture, an exposition of chemically related scientific products and services, and pre- and postcongress tours of neighboring islands. General tours will be offered during the congress to places on Oahu related to the culture and history of the Hawaiian Islands. A young scholars' travel assistance program has been established, and students may enter a special student poster competition.

Papers will be presented in oral and poster sessions associated with the symposia; general poster sessions in all technical areas will also be available. All papers require an abstract of approximately 150 words, to be submitted online. Electronic abstract submission will open on the Pacifichem website-- Jan. 17 and will close on April 13.
