In this Issue
The 17th ACC at Melbourne (23-28 July 2017) will be an exciting, unprecedented opportunity for chemists to network with world leaders in chemistry, and to hear about the latest, increasingly boundary spanning chemical research. The congress will be held in the beautiful, cosmopolitan, and multicultural city of Melbourne in parallel with eight other international congresses that span all aspects of chemistry. These congresses, which are part of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute’s centenary year celebration, will attract 3500 of the best chemistry researchers and academics. The 17ACC will provide an excellent opportunity for Asian chemists to strengthen current networks and to establish new collaborative links within Asian, Oceania, and the rest of the world.
