Welcome – ISGC 2015 / International Symposium on Green Chemistry.
“ In May 2013, you were many scientists to attend the 2nd International Symposium on Green Chemistry (ISGC-2). This scientific event was a real success with more than 550 participants (including 21% from industry) from 37 different countries. Through 150 conferences/oral communications and 330 posters, ISGC-2 provided a large focus on the past, future and challenges of Green Chemistry and received fantastic media coverage. As mentioned by Paul T. Anastas at the occasion of the symposium opening ceremony, ISGC-2 was the international rendez-vous for green chemistry in 2013.
Under the impulsion of many industrial and academic delegations, we decided to organize a novel edition. In this context, on the behalf of the International Advisory Board, the Organizing Committee warmly invites you to participate to the 3rd International Symposium on Green Chemistry that will be held from May 3rd-7th 2015 in La Rochelle, FRANCE.
For this third edition, we aim at widening the scope of the symposium to other fields of green chemistry. In particular, ISGC-2015 will cover nine general topics related to 1. biomass conversion, 2. clean hydrogen production, 3. alternative solvents, 4. waste, 5. polymers and materials, 6. atom-economy synthesis, 7. eco-technology, 8. predictive methods and 9. environmental and ethical assessments. Each topic will be introduced by a plenary lecture delivered by an eminent scientist of the field. Apart from the lectures, ISGC-2015 will be organized around different parallel sessions (including invited keynotes and oral communications), posters, a round table and an exhibition area.
On the continuation of ISGC-2, a key objective of this third edition is to provide an environment that facilitates widespread interdisciplinary communication. To this end, ISGC-2015 should offer to public and private scientists an ideal platform for sharing fundamental knowledge with industrial research and development.
We hope you will enjoy this unique moment to share your vision about green chemistry with other countries and to contribute to the emergence of new and sustainable processes for a greener world.
We look forward seeing you at this occasion in this beautiful part of France
Sincerely yours. ”
Chairman of ISGC 2015
