4th International Conference on Energy and Biological Materials

The University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in Hefei, China hosted the 4th International Conference on Energy and Biological Materials last month, September 16-18. The meeting was organised by Yi Cui (Stanford University, USA), Shuhong Yu, Jinlong Yang and Xinhe Bao (USTC) and also commemorated USTC’s 60th anniversary. The invited talks covered a wide range of topics, including materials for energy storage and conversion, catalysis and medicine, and bio-inspired materials. Chemical Science Deputy Editor Jeremy Allen, shown below, was also in attendance and talked to the delegates about ‘How to Publish’, speaking about the role of a publisher and giving a few tips about how to help get your papers noticed!
