Applied Symposia

The 12th Singapore International Chemistry Conference (SICC-12) is held on 9 to 13 December 2024. It is hosted by the Singapore National Institute of Chemistry (SNIC) and it will cover organic, organometallic, inorganic and material chemistry.

The theme will be “Building Chemistry: Bridging Disciplines” and about 2000 participants from all over the world are expected. We have already gathered an impressive roster of speakers, among them is Nobel Laureate Professor Aaron Ciechanover. This event will be held in-person only, in Singapore.

In addition, building on the “Germany-Singapore Framework for Sustainability and Innovation”, signed by both governments in November 2022, we are proud to host the “Applied Symposium” in Singapore, with the presence of Prof Stefanie Dehnen (President German Chemical Society , GDCh), and Prof. Annette Beck-Sickinger (Leipzig University & Chair Angew. Chem. International Advisory Board), among others.

It is our great pleasure to extend our welcome to synthetic chemists around the world to join us at this exciting event in Singapore.

Applied Symposia

In the International Year of Chemistry 2011, the "Angewandte Chemie International Edition", the flagship of the GDCh journals and one of the most important chemistry publications worldwide, celebrated its 50th birthday. On the occasion of this anniversary, the GDCh organized two symposia in June together with the Japanese Chemical Society (CSJ), the Chinese Chemical Society (CCS), the German Research Foundation (DFG) as a network partner of the "Research in Germany" initiative and the publishing house Wiley-VCH Tokyo and Beijing. With these events, top achievements in chemistry should be honored and the scientific dialogue between the GDCh and its partner organizations in Japan and China should be strengthened. Four Nobel Prize winners in chemistry and other world-class chemists were speakers at the symposia, which could also be watched on video on the Internet.
