Time：October 12-15, 2003
Introduction：The 3rd Asia-Pacific Congress on Catalysis (APCAT-3) will be held in Dalian, China from October 12 (Sunday) to 15 (Wednesday), 2003. The congress follows the tradition set by the two pervious meetings held in Kyongju, Korea (1997) and Sydney, Australia (2000). The Organization Committee cordially invites colleagues working in the field of catalysis to attend the congress. The APCAT-3 will focus on recent development of catalysis researches in the Asia-Pacific Region. Particularly, the molecular understanding of catalyst operation and the availability of new strategies for catalyst design, preparation, and evolution will be the pronounced features of this congress. Based on this principle, 5 Plenary Lectures and 14 Keynote talks will be presented by the outstanding scientists in catalysis. About 80 oral presentations and over 300 posters will be performed with authors coming from Asia-Pacific region, Europe, and other continents.
