Introduction to SICC-7

Time: December 16 - 19, 2012
Venue: University Town, National University of Singapore, Singapore
Organizers: National University of Singapore

We are happy to announce that the Department of Chemistry at the National University of Singapore will be organizing the 7th Singapore International Chemistry Conference (SICC-7, in conjunction with the 12th Asia-Pacific International Symposium on Microscale Separation and Analysis (APCE 2012), from 16th to 19th December 2012 at the newly established University Town campus of the National University of Singapore (NUS). SICC is a biennial conference dedicated to promoting advances in chemistry. This conference is the seventh in this series and focuses on scientific developments in physical and analytical chemistry, and aims to discuss new ideas and trends as we move further into the twenty-first century. APCE2012 is twelfth in the series that has made the rounds in major cities around the Asia-Pacific region. The symposium will focus on all aspects of microscale and microfluidic analytical and bioanalytical chemistry and separation science. We are expecting more than 300-400 participants from all over the world, and we cordially invite you to convene at NUS, Asia's Global University, for these two exciting events.( Abstract submission opens on the 16 Jul 2012 and closes 15 Sep 2012.)

The SICC-7 will cover various topics including:

  • Spectroscopy in Materials and the Life Sciences
  • Photochemistry
  • Nanomaterials
  • Graphene/Functional Materials
  • Devices/Nanodevices
  • Computational Chemistry
  • Reaction Dynamics and Kinetics
  • Surface Chemistry
  • Analytical Chemistry, including Microscale and Microfluidic Analysis and Separation
  • Education in Chemistry

APCE2012 will concentrate on:

  • Capillary and microchip electrophoresis
  • Multidimensional chromatographic separations
  • Micro- and nanoscale gas and liquid chromatography
  • Microfluidics
  • Hyphenated techniques, particularly with, but not limited to, mass spectrometry
  • Metabolomics and related omics techniques, including including proteomics, glycomics, genomics, transcriptomics, foodomics, etc
  • Novel instrumentation, including sensors
  • Sample preparation or pretreatment
  • Materials in microscale analytical chemistry
