Recent editions of the MC series have been very successful: MC8, held in London in 2007, attracted 500 delegates; in 2009, the RSC was proud to incorporate MC9 into the scientific programme of the 42nd IUPAC World Congress (IUPAC 2009) which reached an audience of over 2000 delegates; MC10 saw nearly 500 scientists present their work in Manchester in July 2011, MC11 in the comfortable surroundings of the University of Warwick's Arts Centre reached an audience of just over 500 delegates and MC12 which took place in York saw almost 600 delegates join together.
The targeted identification of new materials, spanning modelling and knowledge-led approaches i.e., routes based both on computation and an experiment-derived understanding.
