PERCH-CIC Congress IX:

2016 International Congress for Innovation in Chemistry (Chemistry in ASEAN Economic Community and Beyond)
on June 26-29, 2016, in Pattaya, Thailand.

The Center of Excellence for Innovation in Chemistry (PERCH-CIC) is proud to host the 2016 International Congress for Innovation in Chemistry or PERCH-CIC Congress IX, following the successful events from 2002 to 2013. Under the theme "Chemistry in ASEAN Economic Community and Beyond," the aim of this Congress is to provide an international forum for discussions of the latest developments in chemical and pharmaceutical sciences with the emphasis on sustainable energy, catalysis, new materials, drugs and nutraceuticals, food and agricultural products, environmental monitoring, and testing devices for quality control. The Congress is joined by many national and international experts and offers many discussion platforms, including parallel sessions, poster presentations, trade exhibition, and social events. A concurrent, half-day session called Industry Forum will also be organized to facilitate open dialogue between researchers and private enterprises.

PERCH-CIC is part of the Royal Thai Government's long-term investment plan on high quality research and innovation, as well as on human resources development for the enhancement of national competitiveness. The Centers of Excellence Program, in which PERCH-CIC is a member of, is administered by the S&T Postgraduate Education and Research Development Office, Commission on Higher Education, Ministry of Education. PERCH-CIC consists of members from seven universities strategically located in different parts of the country. Together with additional six research labs and outreach units, PERCH-CIC offers 26 graduate programs at M.Ed., M.Sc., and Ph.D. levels, with Mahidol University as the lead institution and Professor Vichai Reutrakul as its director. The Congress series is one of the milestone activities of the center.

The PERCH-CIC Congresses provide a platform for researchers from thirteen affiliated universities and those outside the center to discuss and share their research results, as well as to form new networks and strengthen existing collaborations. The Congress has also become one of the most important international meetings in the chemical sciences in Thailand, with high attendance by distinguished participants from abroad and within the country. Attendance has grown from 350 in 2002 to more than 650 in 2013, with international participants representing over 10 countries.
