27–31 August 2007, Fukuoka, Japan
IUPAC International Symposium on MacroMolecular Complexes
(MMC12) will be held 27–31 August 2007 at Fukuoka International
Congress Center in Fukuoka, Japan. The MMC Symposium brings
together leading scientists and engineers to discuss the latest
advances in macromolecular complexes, which include macromolecule-metal
complexes, polynuclear complexes, capped metal nanoparticles,
organic-inorganic hybrids, supramolecular complexes and self-assembled
materials, and polyelectrolytes. In addition to syntheses
and characterization of those materials, the conference will
deal with various conductive, photophysical, catalytic, electronic,
optical, magnetic, and biological properties and functions.
The series of MMC symposia have previously been held in Beijing (1985), Tokyo (1987), New Jersey (1989), Siena (1991), Bremen (1993), Kuang-chou (1995), Leiden (1997), Tokyo (1999), New York (2001), Moscow (2003), and Pisa (2005).
The conference will feature plenary lectures, invited lectures, and contributed posters with a short oral preview. In addition to the invited guest lectures, about 25 invited lectures will be selected by the Scientific Committee from poster applications. Proceedings of MMC-12 will be published in Macromolecular Symposia. English will be the working language of the conference.
Fukuoka, the largest city on Kyushu Island, is located southwest of Japan Islands. Exciting places such as Dazaifu, Mt. Aso, Mt. Sakurajima, and Nagasaki are close to Fukuoka. A half-day excursion is planned for the afternoon of 29 August 2007 to the “God of Learning” at Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine, Komyozenji Temple, and the Kyushu National Museum.
