TO: NACS Membership
FR: Enrique Iglesia
Subject: Attendance and abstract submission; ICC 2016 Beijing, China
Professor Can Li (Chair, 16th International Catalysis Congress, http://www.icc2016china.com) has contacted me to request that I encourage the submission of abstracts from the NACS membership to this meeting.
The ICC meetings provide the broadest international forum for the dissemination of research in heterogeneous catalysis and related fields. These meetings started in the U.S. in 1956 and the NACS will be presenting a bid to hold the 17th ICC in North America, for the first time since 1996.
It is important, both to demonstrate the excellence of the scientific enterprise in catalysis within North America and to ensure the success of the NACS bid, that our NACS community be represented in the scientific program with numbers and quality consistent with precedents and with the strength of the on-going research activities.
Please consider submitting abstracts and attending.
The submission deadline has been extended until December 20 (http://www.icc2016china.com/en/page.asp?hid=&pageid=86.html)
President, North American Catalysis Society
