Conference: International Conference for Young Chemists (ICYC) 2015, Malaysia

ICYC 2015

This press release was provided by the organizing committee of ICYC 2015.

The organizing committee of the upcoming International Conference for Young Chemists (ICYC) are pleased to present this year’s conference, which will be held in City Bayview Hotel, Penang, Malaysia on the 5th-7th August 2015.

The ICYC is a biennial conference organized by the postgraduate students of the School of Chemical Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia with the aim to gather local and international researchers and to facilitate interaction and networking among researchers in the chemistry field.

The idea of this conference started back in the year of 2001, where it was known as the Regional Conference for Young Chemists (RCYC), targeting postgraduate students and researchers from the Asia Pacific Region (Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, India and Japan). What used to be the Regional Conference for Young Chemists (RCYC) has been developed and rebranded into the International Conference for Young Chemists as we known today. Researchers from all around the world rather than just from the Asia Pacific region are being targeted.

The ICYC will follow a similar program for scientific conferences, which consists of oral and poster presentations. In addition to that, prominent researchers in their respective fields of Chemistry will be invited to give plenary lectures to inspire and share their knowledge with the younger generation of upcoming researchers. Industry players will also be involved by exhibiting their products and services during the conference.
