La prossima edizione dei congressi Halchem, seguendo una tradizione iniziata dal nostro gruppo di ricerca nel 2002, è in preparazione.
Ecco l’avviso inviato oggi dall’organizzatore di questa VI edizione, il Prof. Mugesh:
The first “HALCHEM International Meeting” was held in Sardinia, Italy in 2002, which brought together researchers working on various aspects of halogen compounds. Following the success of the first meeting, the subsequent meetings were held in 2004 (HALCHEM-II, Sardinia, Italy), 2006 (HALCHEM-III, Ioannina, Greece), 2008 (HALCHEM-IV, Barcelona, Spain) and 2010 (HALCHEM-V, Cagliari, Italy). As in the previous meetings, HALCHEM-VI will focus on all aspects of chemistry involving halogens such as synthetic and theoretical aspects, spectroscopy, supramolecular chemistry, halogen bonding, hypervalent halogen compounds etc.
All the previous meetings were highly successful. Traditionally, HALCHEM meetings have been organized for a restricted number of participants (~30-40 researchers coming from several countries), which allowed efficient interactions between the participants and created an atmosphere for future collaborations. In addition, the policy to give each research group an adequate time for oral presentation has been the key to the success of the meetings. As a consequence of these biennial meetings, numerous scientific collaborations and exchange visits have been initiated between various groups. Halchem VI would follow a similar policy and each group will have an adequate time for the lecture (40-45 min). As in the previous meetings, contributions from scientific community working in the area of halogen chemistry (such as synthetic and theoretical aspects, spectroscopy, supramolecular chemistry, halogen bonding, hypervalent halogen compounds, atmospheric chemistry, etc) are welcome.
The meeting will be held in Bangalore (Bengaluru), the Garden City, located in the southern part of India. Bangalore is well known as a hub for India’s information technology sector and scientific institutions. As a result of its cosmopolitan nature, Bangalore attracts people from all over world and is among the fastest growing cities in Asia. Bangalore has a moderate climate throughout the year due to its elevation and the weather during the meeting in December will be pleasant. This will help you to associate a dream holiday with the scientific engagements. Bangalore is directly connected with all major cities in India through air links. Also, there are direct international flights from/to Frankfurt, Paris, London, Dubai, Jeddah, Doha, Riyadh, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Singapore and Bangkok.
I take this opportunity to invite you to participate in the meeting. If you require any further information, please let me know. You will find all the information about Halchem VI at the website (http://ipc.iisc.ernet.in/~halchemVI), which will be available soon. I look forward to hearing from you.
