About the Congress

The novel congress concept involves all of the partner conferences running concurrently during the week allowing delegates to access sessions across a wide variety of chemistry disciplines. Each day will commence with a common Congress plenary speaker for all delegates followed by the various conferences running their individual programs.

A single Congress fee will allow delegates to attend any conference or session they wish. No one will be limited to a single conference stream.

The program will involve the specialised individual partner conferences producing content in their area of expertise while the RACI Centenary National Conference and the 17th ACC will form the major umbrella event and will concentrate on the important areas of chemistry not covered by the specialised partner conferences.

Any delegates wishing to present will be able to submit abstracts to the whichever partner conference(s) their subject matter is relevant to.

Congress Theme

  1. The proposed theme is “chemistry addressing sustainable development and other challenges of the 2020s”.
  2. The topics are being chosen to broaden subject matter interests whilst preserving traditional chemistry themes.
  3. Australia has great chemistry strengths in a broad range of areas but one of the key challenges for the world is to transform new frontiers of chemistry into innovation to address the key issues facing a world with a continually growing population.
