ISACS13 - Challenges in Inorganic and Materials Chemistry, 1-4 July 2014, Dublin

1 - 4 July 2014, Dublin, Ireland


Challenges in Inorganic and Materials Chemistry will be the follow-up event to successful conferences ISACS 3 and ISACS 8 held in 2010 and 2012 respectively, by bringing together leading scientists from across the world to share scientific developments.

The Scientific Committee warmly invites you to take part in ISACS13 and looks forward to welcoming you to Dublin.


This conference will bring together world leading experts from several disciplines and encourage the cross fertilization of ideas.  Extensive poster sessions will form a key part of the symposia and there will be questions after each talk.

5th Joint CSJ RSC Symposium on Supramolecular Chemistry

The Chemical Society of Japan (CSJ) and Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) have collaborated on several successful joint activities in recent years including four symposia (2007 in Osaka, 2008 in Belfast, 2010 in London and 2013 in Kyoto).  As part of the symposium in London in 2010 an International Co-operation agreement was signed between the two societies. In 2014 the CSJ and RSC are organising a 5th Joint symposium between the CSJ and RSC in Dublin, Ireland on the topic of supramolecular chemistry. This meeting will take place before the start of the 'Challenges in Inorganic and Materials Chemistry' ISACS13 conference.

This symposium is free for anyone to attend but we ask that you regsiter, please see the event webpage for further information. If you are attending ISACS13 you can regsiter for both meetings at the same time using the registration link on this page.
