It is our great pleasure to announce that the International Symposium on Single-atom Catalysis (ISSAC) will be held at Dalian, China, from June 30 to July 2, 2016. This symposium is a satellite pre-symposium of the 16th International Congress on Catalysis (ICC 16) which will be held from July 3 to 8, 2016, in Beijing, China.
As a new frontier of heterogeneous catalysis, single-atom catalysis (SAC) has attracted considerable attention in the past years, with the rapid development of new preparation methods, advanced characterization techniques, and insightful theoretical understanding at the single-atom scale. This symposium will provide an international forum for active researchers in the field of single-atom catalysis to discuss the new results and ideas.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in the beautiful romantic city of Dalian!
Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP) is located in the beautiful port city of Dalian, China. The Institute has built up an impressive portfolio of achievements, principally in the fields of catalysis, chemical engineering, chemical lasers, molecular reaction dynamics, organic synthesis, and chromatography for modern analytic chemistry and biotechnology. These achievements have greatly contributed to the economic and technological development of China. Research at DICP is now focused on energy and environmental protection-related fields.
Since its founding, DICP has produced numerous outstanding scientists and high-quality engineers who have developed both strong domestic and international reputations. A total of 17 of DICP scientists have been elected to the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE), three to the Academy of Sciences for the Developing World (TWAS), and one to Academia European. DICP currently has over 1,000 staff members, 954 graduate students, and 104 post-doctors.
