Conference Announcements

* 38th IUPAC Congress-Frontiers in Chemistry/World Chemistry Congress 2001

* IUPAC-sponsored event

1-6 July 2001
Brisbane, Australia

Held in conjunction with the 41st IUPAC General Assembly (29 June-8 July 2001) and incorporating the 9th Asian Chemistry Congress (1-4 July 2001) and AIMECS 01 (3-6 July 2001), the 38th IUPAC Congress/World Chemistry Congress 2001 in Brisbane, Australia will be a landmark event, featuring a diverse program and a range of associated meetings and activities that will combine to make attendance a valuable experience. The Royal Australian Chemical Institute will host all the Congress events in Brisbane, a city that offers every amenity and is an ideal point from which to explore the vast Australian continent.

Scientific program themes will include the following:

Materials Chemistry for the Future

  • materials chemistry in confined systems
  • supramolecular chemistry
  • biomaterials
  • spectroscopy, optoelectronics, energy production, and storage
  • combinatorial methods for novel materials and devices
  • novel polymeric and composite materials

Chemistry by Computer

  • molecular structure and reactions: theories, modeling, and experimentation
  • chemical education in the information age
  • chemometrics
  • trends in computational quantum chemistry and chemical dynamics
  • molecular simulations and theory of complex materials

Challenges for Drug Discovery and Development in the 21st Century—Joint with AIMECS 01

  • target discovery
  • libraries and screens
  • molecular design
  • molecular development
  • new vistas in therapy

Environmental Chemistry and the Greening of Industry

  • chemical synthesis, processing, and analysis for improved environmental impact
  • chemistry of responsible care
  • atmospheric, urban air, and water chemistry
  • chemistry of energy production and use
  • agricultural chemistry
  • standards and measurement of future directions

Modern Synthetic Chemistry

  • new synthetic transformations
  • combinatorial diversity in synthesis
  • new organometallics�synthesis and applications
  • inorganic and organic catalysis in synthetic and biological systems
  • novel macromolecule syntheses
  • synthetic efficiency for health and profit

The preliminary program will be released this month. Early bird discount registration closes 3 December 2000. Abstract submissions are invited for contributed oral and poster presentations on topics within the scope of the World Chemistry Congress and the associated meetings. Abstract submissions close on 31 March 2001, and authors will be noti-fied after 1 May 2001.

A trade exhibition will be a major feature of the World Chemistry Congress, and organizations interested in commercial display opportunities are welcome. A detailed exhibition kit is available to those who contact the Congress Secretariat.
