The Asian Chemical Editorial Society (ACES) and the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (GDCh, German Chemical Society) will host a high-level one-day symposium at the biannual Asian Chemical Congress (ACC). The symposium is designed to deepen relationships and foster collaboration between chemists across Asia, Germany, and beyond.

The symposium is part of the Asian Chemical Congress in Melbourne, Australia, in conjunction with the centenary celebrations of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI), an ACES partner.

The symposium will include the presentation of this year’s Ryoji Noyori ACES Award to Chi-Ming Che, University of Hong Kong. The biannual Noyori ACES award recognizes a top scientist who has made outstanding contributions to the development of chemistry in general and of the ACES journals in particular. It has been initiated by the ACES partners to honor Professor Noyori’s instrumental role in nurturing the collaborative ACES spirit.

Markus Antonietti, Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Germany, will hold the GDCh Lecture. Chemistry – An Asian Journal’s Editor Theresa Kueckmann will talk on Chemistry Publishing: An Editor’s Perspective (2:45 p.m.).

The Asian Chemical Editorial Society comprises thirteen chemical societies from across Asia and the Pacific who coordinate their publishing activities and foster international cooperation across Asia. ACES supports scientific collaboration, which highlights the advantages of exchange and mutual enrichment and helps to break down barriers to the free flow of ideas. It was founded in 2005 by the Chinese Chemical Society, the Chemical Research Society of India, the Chemical Society of Japan, and the Korean Chemical Society and is supported by the Federation of Asian Chemical Societies. The ACES flagship journal Chemistry – An Asian Journal was founded at the same time as a sister journal to Angewandte Chemie and Chemistry – A European Journal. Chemistry – An Asian Journal, like the other ACES journals Asian Journal of Organic Chemistry and ChemNanoMat, is rooted in Asia through its ties to the ACES partner societies. All three ACES journals are nevertheless international in scope and are held in high standing by readers and authors around the world.
