Time：September 14-16, 2009
Introduction：One of the most important symposia of the 13th Asian Chemical Congress (13th ACC) (http://www.13acc.org/ ), the Physical & Theoretical Chemistry Symposiumwill be held in Shanghai, China, September 14-16, 2009. The PTCS will focus mainly on Physical & Theoretical Chemistry related research for understanding and defining the underlying concepts, as well as their potential applications. The symposium is organized by Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, in partnership with the Chinese Chemical Society (CCS), under the Auspices of the Federation of Asian Chemical Societies (FACS).The PTCS is expected to attract worldwide experts to foster research in the fields of Physical & Theoretical Chemistry. The innovative ideas, new manners and the best results will be introduced to show the recent progress and frontier research of Physical Chemistry and Theoretical Chemistry, particularly in the aspects of Structural Chemistry, Cluster Chemistry, Theoretical Chemistry, Quantum Chemistry, Computational Chemistry, Catalysis, Surface Chemistry, Colloid & Interface Chemistry, Chemical Kinetics/Dynamics, Electrochemistry, Chemical Thermodynamics, Photochemistry/ Optical Physics, ChemoInformatics and Biological Physical Chemistry. Abstracts in the related aspects for oral presentations and posters are highly welcome to be submitted. The symposium will also offer a unique blend of the various scientific disciplines (physics, chemistry, materials, and theoretical simulations) that play essential roles in developing the promising future of physical chemistry and theoretical chemistry.
