We are pleased to announce that the International Symposium on Catalytic Conversion of Energy and Resources (ISCCER) will be held at Seoul, Korea from June 30 to July 2, 2016, as the satellite conference of the 15th International Congress on Catalysis (ICC). The symposium will provide an encounter among the catalyst researchers with interest in the state-of-the-art scientific trends of the latest catalytic conversion processes of the energy and resources to build the sustainable future. We look forward to welcoming you to an inspiring and enjoyable program at the heart of Seoul, Korea.
