44 th World Chemistry Congress will be held in Istanbul, Turkey from 11th to 16 th August 2013. On behalf of the Turkısh Chemical Society, I would like to invite you to participate in the Congress. The official congress opening ceromony will be on Sunday 11 August 2013.
The scientfic program will follow the traditional structure of plenary, keynote, oral and poster presentations.Four Nobel Laurates in chemistry and other distiunguished chemists will be plenary and keynote speakers during the congress.
The organizing committee wanted the congress to be more than just chemists talking to chemists. Therefore we encouraged interactions with other disciplines.
The congress should be more than a congress focusing on academic research. Although this aspect is always at the hearth of all the congresses we have expanded our orientation to also include nonacademics.
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.
I t is an ancient city. It’s museums, streets, mosques, churches, synagogs bear the traces of Hellenic, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman cultures.
Some of them will be visited by the participants in this congress during the social events.
Istanbul seats 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 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 rate for the international participants.
