“Stimulating Reflection and Catalysing Change in Chemistry Education” will be the central theme for the 2012 joint meeting of the International Conference on Chemistry Education and the European Conference on Research and Innovation in Chemical Education (ICCE-ECRICE) in Rome, Italy, on 15–20 July 2012. It is only fitting that these two major international conferences in chemistry education meet together under the same roof, that of Rome, la città eterna, the eternal city.
ICCE 2012 will be the 22nd in a series that it is held every two years as an IUPAC sponsored conference. In recent years, the ICCE met in Taipei in 2010, in Mauritius in 2008, in Seoul in 2006, and in Istanbul in 2004. ECRICE 2012 will be the 11th in a series that it is also held every two years as an EuCheMS sponsored conference: ECRICE met in Krakow in 2010, in Istanbul in 2008, in Budapest in 2006, and in Ljubljana in 2004.
The discipline of chemistry education is constantly undergoing major developments that reflect the changing role of chemistry in our global society and the manner in which our science is perceived by the public. In so many new ways, the social, scientific, cultural, and didactic aspects of chemistry interact with each other and with other emerging disciplines such as museology, ethics, and communication science. The organizers would like the Roman conference to be remembered in the future as one that contributed to the growth of the quality of chemistry education around the world.
The organizers of the conference are assembling a high-level scientific program in an exceptional environment that will make ICCE-ECRICE 2012 a memorable event. See the website for more details.
