Officer's Column: Let’s Meet in Istanbul

On behalf of the Turkish Chemical Society, I would like to invite you to participate in the 44th World Chemistry Congress, which will be held in Istanbul, Turkey, 11–16 August 2013.

When we began planning the congress we had six main objectives:

  • recognize and highlight core concepts, and look at chemistry in many different ways
  • assess where chemistry is coming from and build a vision for the future
  • show that chemistry brings about many benefits to our economic progress and enhances the quality of our lives
  • provide a platform for communication among academics and nonacademics
  • organize symposia that will attract eminent chemists from all over the world
  • have the conference theme be “Clean Energy through Chemistry” to highlight the relationship between chemistry and energy and demonstrate how chemistry is used to solve environmental and energy problems

The scientific topics of the congress are as follows:

  • Clean Energy Through Chemistry
  • Chemical Analysis
  • Chemistry for Cultural Heritage
  • Chemical Synthesis
  • Physical Chemistry
  • Macro and Nano Science and Technology
  • Environmental Chemistry, Green and Sustainable Chemistry
  • Life Chemistry
  • Materials Science
  • Chemistry Education
  • Chemical Industry and Innovation

The scientific program will follow the traditional structure of plenary, keynote, oral, and poster presentations. Three Nobel Laureates in chemistry and other distinguished chemists will be plenary and keynote speakers.

When/Where/What

Congress Date: 11–16 August 2013

Congress Venue: The Istanbul Lutfi Kırdar Convention and Exhibition Center & the Harbiye Military Museum & Convention Center

Registration: Online registration is available on the website. The deadline for early bird registration is 11 April 2013 with discounted rates for IUPAC members and affiliates. Also there are many hotel options for every budget.

The organizing committee hopes that the congress will be more than just chemists talking to chemists. Therefore, we encourage interactions with other disciplines. Although academic research is always at the heart of all the IUPAC congresses we have expanded our orientation to also include nonacademics. One of the targets of this congress is a delegates mixture of 80 percent academic and 20 percent nonacademic, a higher ratio than previous congresses.

Istanbul is not only the largest city in Turkey, but also one of the world’s most important, economic, financial, and trade centers. It has a worldwide reputation as a result of its long history and rich culture. Istanbul sits astride Europe and Asia: Indeed it is the only city in the world located on two continents. These two parts of Istanbul are divided by a strait of water called the Bosphorous linking the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara. There are currently two bridges that connect the Asian side to the European side of Istanbul. A new, third bridge will also be built in the near future. You can see many places in the world, but no other place rivals the beauty of Istanbul.

Turkish Airlines is the official Airline of the congress and offers a special discount for international participants. You may find more information about the congress at www.iupac2013.org.

We sincerely welcome you to attend the congress and share your experiences and research. We look forward to seeing you in Istanbul!

Mehmet Mahramanlioglu <mehmah@istanbul.edu.tr> is chair of the IUPAC2013 Congress, secretary general of the Turkish Chemical Society, and a professor in the Chemistry Department of Istanbul Üniversitesi.
