Workshop/Symposium

Call for Workshop or Symposium

The Organising Committee invites proposals for running of workshops or symposia.

Each workshop or symposium should have at least 10 paper presentations.

The organiser or one of the organisers will benefit from waiving of basic registration fee.

The organiser/s will be responsible for promoting the workshop or symposium, reviewing and recommending abstracts and full papers for the book of proceedings.

Each participant interested in submitting an abstract to a workshop or symposium must send the formatted abstract to the workshop or symposium organiser/s. If the abstract is suitable for the workshop or symposium, organiser/s should inform the participant to submit the abstract to the online submission system of the conference. If the abstract is not suitable for the workshop or symposium, organiser/s should inform the participant to submit the abstract to the online submission system to be considered for oral/poster sessions of the conference. All deadlines must be respected.

Proposals for running workshops or symposia should be submitted to the Chairman of the Organising Committee, Prof Ponnadurai Ramasami, ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ). Each proposal should include the following details:

  1. Title of workshop or symposium.
  2. Details of the organiser/s (name, current position and e-mail address).
  3. Brief description in about 100 words of the workshop or symposium.
  4. Participants targeting.

The deadline for proposal submission is 31st Dec 2015.

The Organising Committee reserves the right to decide about the running of workshop/symposium.

Approved Symposia

Reference

Symposium I

Title

Computational Chemistry and its Applications

Brief

Computational chemistry uses computers to solve chemical problems. It applies theoretical methods implemented in software for computations. At the outset of the 21st century, computational chemistry is leading to a wide range of possibilities usually interdisciplinary. This symposium aims to gather researchers applying computational methods in chemistry and allied subjects. The topics may be related but not limited to structural, spectroscopic, kinetic and thermodynamic aspects.

Symposium II

Title

Organic Chemistry and Spectroscopy

Brief

The symposium will emphasize on the synthesis and spectroscopic properties of organic molecules like fluorophores, pharmacophores, chromophores, speciality organic chemical intermediates. Evaluation of spectroscopic properties – both computational and experimental approach – will be emphasized in this symposium. Application of organic meterials in photonic, electro-optical devices  will also be welcome.  Process development of industrial organic chemicals will also be deliberated  in the symposium.  Other aspects that would be considered are structure-property relationshps of organic molecules with a focus on computations.

Reference Symposium III
List of invited speakers
Title Chemistry and Physics of Elemental 2D Materials
Brief The symposium will bring together an international group of top scientists and engineers in the field of elemental two-dimensional materials (primarily but not restricted to silicene, germanene, phosphorene, arsenene, …) in an interdisciplinary setting to discuss recent advances in the field. The session will consist of invited oral presentations and contributed posters, with ample time for discussions and networking.

Reference Symposium IV
Title Chemical Education:  Successful Learning Outcomes in Chemistry via Innovative Classroom Management
Brief

Chemistry is considered as the central science and is basically one of the basic subjects in the basic or higher education. The high level of abstraction of chemical concepts sometimes leads to misconception that’s why many students obtained low performance in this subject. When Chemistry learning is not connected with existing students’ life, it will result to students’ feeling that Chemistry is impractical, unfamiliar, and in contradiction with the beliefs and practices of their lives. In response to this dilemma in Chemical Education, there is a pressing need to employ various innovative classroom practices for successful learning outcomes in Chemistry.

Reference Symposium V
Title Ligand-based Molecular Design (LBMD): Shape- and Electrostatics-based Virtual Screening – Basics and Hands-on Training
Brief Ligand-based molecular design (LBMD) is a popular approach in computer-aided molecular design (CAMD). Based on the ligand shape and electrostatics, it is possible to virtually screen large compound collections for similarities with the query ligand(s). Chemical features representing pharmacophoric points can also be incorporated in the query building to improve the outcome. Using OpenEye Scientific Software suite, few case studies will be worked upon by the participants. Initial part of the symposium will cover basics of shape and electrostatics-based LBMD. The participants will get hands-on experience of performing such a study. All the participants registered for the symposium will get one-month complimentary demo license of the OE suite.

Reference Symposium VI
Title Renewable Energy for a Sustainable Development
Brief For a very long time, much of the world's energy requirements have been met by digging oil wells and mine shafts, and plundering the Earth's resources, regardless of the resulting detrimental environmental effects. It is vital that we think ahead and find alternative, sustainable sources of energy that will cause less harm to our planet. As scientists, we are determined to conduct research that has immediate practical applications by opening and broadening the energy agenda and by systematically incorporating renewable energies. This symposium will consist of presentations involving renewable energy.

Reference Symposium VII
Title High Technology Green Materials Based on Polysaccharide Derivatives
Brief Polysaccharides are renewable and abundantly available from farm, forest, biochemical and marine resources. They are biodegradable, shear resistant, and mostly high molecular weight materials amenable to chemical modifications. By purification, grafting, hydrolysis, cationization and nanoscale compounding, high performance turbulent drag reducers, flocculants, adsorbents, drug delivery agents and rheological aids have been developed which surpass the existing products in performance at international levels. The physical behaviour of these high performance green materials has been explained by phenomenological and physical models by scientific world. This workshop will bring together an international group of top scientists and engineers working in the field of materials based on polysaccharide derivatives.

Reference Workshop I
Tentative Programme
Title Assay Development to Candidate Drug: How to Find and Progress Small Molecule Hits from Screening
Brief The purpose of this symposium aimed at researchers from disease endemic countries is to enhance and build scientific research capacity in integrated drug discovery. Specifically the symposium will focus on assay development, screening and progression of small molecule chemical matter (hits) from screening efforts (both from primary screens, and particularly from the use of the Malaria and Pathogen Boxes to deliver leads suitable for optimization and, ultimately, selection as pre-clinical drug development candidates. A key outcome will be to raise awareness of existing drug discovery activities in disease endemic countries in an attempt to foster new collaborations between attendees.
