The 2014 RACI Congress will bring together chemists with interests ranging from biological pathways to advanced materials to novel synthesis. The meeting will focus on industrial, academic and educational symposia and provide many opportunities for attendees to network with colleagues from many diverse backgrounds. The meeting represents a new approach to the RACI National Convention traditional held every five years. This Congress will emphasise the cross disciplinary nature of chemistry and many of the symposia will explore exciting new areas of chemistry, discuss upcoming challenges to the industry, explore the boundaries of the traditional types of chemistry and examine future trends in chemistry and the related sciences. Inspiring the next generation of chemists will also be an important feature of the meeting and will see young chemists including those still in secondary school interact with the leaders in the field.
Adelaide is known as the City of Churches as in the early days many stone churches were built and this architecture is still very common. The city is surrounded by parklands, sports fields, walking and cycling tracks and beautiful gardens. The conference will be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre which is the heart of the city. The central business district of the city is a one mile square surrounded by green parklands with the River Torrens passing through the centre of the CBD. The conference hotels and venue are within an easy walk of each other and both are an easy walk to many of the attractions of the city. Adelaide is home to many museums, galleries, great pubs and restaurants which are all an easy walk from conference venue. Slightly further afield, but still easily reachable by public transit, are great beaches such as Glenelg or pleasant walks through the Adelaide Hills for a relaxing time away from the city.
A local organising committee is already in place and will meet shortly to start the administrative tasks of organising the meeting.
The National Congress should be the highlight event of the RACI calendar. As such is it vital that all components of the RACI play an active role in both the organisation and ultimately execution of the meeting. The organising committee is made up of members from several divisions and interest backgrounds and is committed to involving the broadest cross section of the community.
