The 2010 GRC on Catalysis will be held at Colby Sawyer College, NH from June 27, 2010 through July 2, 2010. The meeting chair is Abhaya Datye (firstname.lastname@example.org) from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM and the Vice-chair is Bruce Cook (Bruce.Cook2@bp.com) from BP Products NA in Naperville, IL.
In 2010, the Catalysis conference will move to a newly-furbished conference room with seating for 150, a new poster session area that will allow 40 posters per session. The dorm rooms provide single and double accommodations, free WIFI and the registration fee includes all meals and the famous lobster dinner on Thursday night. Afternoons are open to enjoy the New England ambiance with opportunities for hiking, sailing, golf and tennis to create an outstanding conference that will help you network with colleagues, and make long lasting connections.

The 2010 GRC on Catalysis will focus on several areas that are of both fundamental and practical importance. The underlying theme is to highlight the role of catalysis in meeting society’s needs for energy and materials. The conference is organized into 9 sessions:
- Alternative Feedstocks For Chemicals And Fuels
- Novel Catalytic Materials
- 3D Imaging Of Catalysts
- Spectroscopy, With Special Emphasis On Heterogeneous Catalysis In The Liquid Phase
- Molecular Insights Through Theory
- The Science Of Catalyst Synthesis
- Design Of Catalysts For Exceptional Stability
- Surface Science
- Future Perspectives On Catalysis
The themes and the speakers have been chosen to interweave academic and industrial interest, as has been the very effective tradition of this long running conference, and to illustrate broad, forefront concepts in the field of heterogeneous catalysis. By including senior scientists as discussion leaders, we hope to add a diversity of perspective and enhance the level of discussions. A special effort was made to attract speakers and discussion leaders from industry. Financial support will be available for graduate students, post-docs and junior faculty. Please visit the NACS website in February 2010 for more details.
