Congratulations to the EuChemS Poster Prizewinners

EuChemSOn the 26th August approximately 1,500 delegates from 60 different countries came to Liverpool for the 7th EuChemS Chemistry Congress. The theme was Molecular frontiers and global challenges, a topic addressed over 5 days by over 100 speakers and in over 500 poster presentations.

To celebrate the diverse range and oustanding quality of the posters a number of Royal Society of Chemistry journals awarded poster prizes. All prizewinners received an official certificate and a £50 voucher for use in the RSC bookstore.

And if you missed the action, don’t worry! You can watch some of the Poster highlights on Youtube now – featuring Immo Klose, winner of a Chemical Science poster prize and Anjali Das, winner of the Polymer Chemistry prize.

International Symposia on Advancing the Chemical Sciences (ISACS) 2011

After a successful introduction in 2010, the International Symposia on Advancing the Chemical Sciences (ISACS) is set to return in 2011. Continuing its support of the RSC flagship journal Chemical Science, this significant new global symposia series is ambitious in its scale and coverage.

The second three symposia, like ISACS 1-3, will be held on three continents, over three separate weeks and have already attracted support from some of the leading names in the chemical sciences.

– ISACS4: Challenges in Renewable Energy
– ISACS5: Challenges in Chemical Biology
– ISACS6: Challenges in Organic Materials & Supramolecular Chemistry

Professor Tianquan Lian, from Emory University, Atlanta, said about the ISACS2 meeting: “The scientific content of the conference was of the highest quality and the hospitality was just superb. I have already told my colleagues about this wonderful conference and the new journal”.

Each ISACS event will feature a single stream of plenary lectures complemented by oral presentations and extensive poster sessions with plenty of time dedicated to networking. The chance for young researchers to present their work alongside some of the leading and emerging names in the field is an opportunity not to be missed.
