The ACS Publications Symposium brings together the world’s leading researchers for three days of innovative, scientific exchange. Since 2016, ACS Publications Symposia have been bringing together hundreds of scientists from across Asia and the world to top institutes in China. On November 17-19, 2019, ACS Publications will host its first symposia in Singapore in partnership with the Nanyang Technological University and National University of Singapore.
The three-day scientific program will feature five plenary sessions on important topics influencing the fields of materials science and technology. Attendees have the opportunity to share their science during poster sessions and network with their peers and world-renowned scientists and lecturers.
