39th IUPAC Congress and 86th Conference of The Canadian Society
for Chemistry: Chemistry at the Interfaces, 10-15 August 2003, Ottawa,
> Back to Calendar
Considerable attention is being focused on greater interdisciplinary
opportunities at the interface of chemistry with other disciplines.
Because of this integration, the boundaries between the traditional
subdisciplines (organic, physical, inorganic, and analytical) are becoming
less pronounced. The congress will highlight the interfaces not only
between these branches of chemistry, but also disciplinary interfaces
with biology, physics, computers, and medicine. New fields have arisen,
such as materials science, surface science, nanoscience, and cheminformatics,
whose scope spans several areas. Other important interfaces are societal
in nature and involve such interactions as universityindustrygovernment,
chemistry and health, the economy, and the environment. This broad and
inclusive theme should stimulate the organization of symposia illustrating
the pure and applied aspects of the discipline.
