1st Annual World Congress of Catalytic Asymmetric Synthesis-2010 (WCCAS-2010)

As a person who is involve in reaction and catalysis engineering, I feel I need to share this announcement. For the first time ever, the Annual Congress of Catalytic Asymmetric Synthesis is going to be held. This is the first such conference being organized and to know further details, please read the following which was adopted from an email from the organizer:

What is WCCAS about?

The 1st Annual World Congress of Catalytic Asymmetric Synthesis-2010
(WCCAS-2010) will be held from May 19 to May 21, 2010 in Beijing, China,
with a theme of ‘Create Bioactive Molecules Green and Economically’. This
is a focused event on Catalytic Asymmetric Synthesis, it aims to stimulate
interactions among academia, industry and researchers in this field to
exchange up-to-the-minutes information and promote their novel
technologies. On behalf of the organizing committee of WCCAS-2010, we
cordially invite you as a speaker at Track 4-2: Asymmetric Synthesis of
Biocides or Pesticides to present and contribute your invaluable


WCCAS-2010 is expected to greatly contribute to the promotion of new concepts for the development of efficient methodologies for catalytic asymmetric synthesis and its practical applications. The topics will reflect this general theme, placing emphasis on aspects that are common to all areas of catalytic asymmetric synthesis and the type of reaction involved:

Track 1: Novel Technologies for Catalytic Asymmetric Synthesis

Track 6-2: Purification and Analytic Instrumentation of Enantio-pure

Scientific Program

The scientific program will consist of plenary and keynote lectures,
approximately 30 sessions, exhibition and a poster session.
More program information can be found at:

Abstracts of the lectures and posters will be printed in the Conference
Proceedings, which participants will receive at the registration desk and
is included in the registration fee.

The capital city of the People’s Republic of China, Beijing is a
fast-growing, dynamic metropolis that, while courting foreign businesses
and visitors, maintains a firm grip on its rich cultural heritage. Beijing
made history in 2008 with the first Olympic Games ever to be held in
China. The conference will be held in Beijing International Convention
Center (BICC) which is located within the magnificent Asian Games Village.
It is one of the Chinese biggest facilities specifically designed for
conferences and exhibitions, comprising 50 conference halls and meeting
rooms equipped to serve a wide variety of purposes with the capacity from
10 up to 2500 people.

Looking forward to seeing you in Beijing in May, 2010

Sincerely Yours,
