The 15th ICC is the catalysis event in 2012! More than 2,000 participants from all over the world will exchange new ideas and discuss developments in all areas of catalysis. Plenary and keynote speakers will present overviews of recent developments. The congress will be held at the International Congress Centre in Munich, a world-class facility offering the flexible infrastructure required to accommodate audiences of any size.
In four parallel oral sessions and two general poster sessions all relevant areas from fundamental understanding to catalyst design and novel processes will be covered. The sessions are complemented by cross disciplinary sessions, organized to share exciting new results at the boundaries between established fields within catalysis. Poster presenters will be able to organize up to four parallel half-day workshops to maximize direct participation by the conference attendees and to stimulate discussions in more specialized areas.
A social program rich in various aspects of the local culture will give you the opportunity to meet your colleagues and friends in a more relaxed atmosphere.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I invite you to attend the 15th ICC in Munich and to contribute by presenting your latest results and by sharing your findings with colleagues in discussions. The call for papers is open until November 1. For more information please visit the congress website www.icc2012.org.
I all look forward to your contribution to the exiting scientific program of the 15th ICC and to meet you in 2012 in Munich.

Chairman, Organizing Committee
