14ACC is the largest international chemical congress in the region under the theme Contemporary Chemistry for Sustainability and Economic Sufficiency.

The Asian Chemical Congress (ACC) is held at two yearly intervals as a tradition hosted by the members of the Federation of Asian Chemical Societies (FACS) which comprises of 28 chemical societies of countries and territories in the Asia Pacific whose membership consists of individual qualified chemists.

In the coming year of 2011, for the first time The Chemical Society of Thailand (C.S.T.) receives an honor to host The 14th Asian Chemical Congress 2011 (14 ACC) between 5-8 September 2011 in Bangkok,
Thailand which is The Largest International Chemical Congress in the Region. 14 ACC is co-hosted by

  1. Department of Chemistry, Chiangmai University
  2. Department of Chemistry, Chulalongkorn University
  3. Department of Chemistry, Kasetsart University
  4. Department of Chemistry, Khon Kaen University
  5. Department of Chemistry, Mahidol University
  6. Department of Chemistry, Prince of Songkla University
  7. Faculty of Science and Technology, Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi

 

Within this year, the congress is celebrating the “International Year of Chemistry” announced by International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) and United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) aiming to place importance on and promote the chemical scientific works which make the 14th ACC 2011 the largest international chemical congress in region.

14ACC will discuss the latest in chemical research, development and education, aiming to make progress in sharing and learning scientific knowledge and improving the quality of life and environment. Nobel and eminent scientists from all over the world are invited to present plenary and keynote lectures, e.g., Professor Dr. Her Royal Highness Princess Chulabhorn Mahidol, Yuan Tseh Lee (The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1986), Ada E. Yonath (The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2009), etc. The scientific works from Instructors, Researchers, Educators and Students in chemical and related fields are as well presented.

14ACC gives a great opportunity to researchers and academicians from graduate students to seniors to present, share and exchange their works and experiences. It is also a good chance for chemists from both public and private sector to gain proficiency from International leading scientists, to share new ideas and innovation, and to meet new exhibitors. These, will encourage the use of science and technology to push forward economy and quality of life to its permanent stability.

The Chemical Society of Thailand (C.S.T.) truly believes that besides the valuable scientific knowledge, all participants’ trip to Thailand, The Land of Smile, will be an impressive and memorable one.
