25–30 July 2010, Adelaide, Australia
The 39th International Conference on Coordination Chemistry (ICCC39) will bring together the world’s leading coordination chemists to showcase the latest developments in this field. Topics from fundamental coordination chemistry will be combined with chemistry topics that specifically address the pressing concerns of the 21st century (such as energy, environmental, and medicinal chemistry) to give comprehensive coverage in parallel streams.
There will be a full range of plenary, keynote, and contributed lectures, poster presentations, and excellent opportunities to network with fellow participants at the various social events. Confirmed plenary speakers include Polly Arnold (Edinburgh), Susumu Kitagawa (Kyoto), Nils Metzler-Nolte (Bochum), Daniel Nocera (MIT), David Parker (Durham), Vivian Yam (Hong Kong), and the Burrows awardee of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute.
The conference program will be structured around current and emerging themes of coordination chemistry, including the following:
- inorganic materials chemistry
- metals in synthesis and catalysis, including metal extraction
- new challenges: energy and the environment
- supramolecular chemistry
- metals in biology
- werner complexes
ICCC39 will be held in Adelaide, which is known as Australia’s festival city. Adelaide offers a cosmopolitan variety of cafes, shopping, and entertainment, and is the gateway to some of Australia’s finest wine regions. The conference venue will be the Adelaide Convention Centre, located in the city center, and surrounded by conference hotels and similar accommodation.
