XXI International Conference on Chemical Thermodynamics in Russia (RCCT-2017) will take place in Akademgorodok (Novosibirsk) from 26th
to 30th of June 2017. The main organizers of RCCT-2017 are Nikolaev Institute of Inorganic Chemistry SB RAS, Technopark of Novosibirsk Akademgorodok and Novosibirsk State University.
The conferences on chemical thermodynamics are among the largest conferences held in Russia since 1961. Till 1977 the conference was called "All-Union conference on calorimetry", further, till 1992 - "All-Union conference on calorimetry and chemical thermodynamics", then after a long break the tradition of holding the conference was revived in 2001.
At present the RCCT International Conferences take place every two years in various large Russian scientific centers such as Moscow, St. Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Novosibirsk, Kazan, Samara and others. Every RCCT is unique and significant event both for Russian and for world thermodynamic community as a whole. The conference cover all the aspects of chemical thermodynamics: from fundamental to applied areas, including multidisciplinary approaches and related areas of science.
The RCCT-2017 scientific program includes five main sections:
- Section 1. General problems of chemical thermodynamics
- Section 2. Thermochemistry and databases
- Section 3. Thermodynamics of solutions and heterogeneous systems
- Section 4. Thermodynamics of surface phenomena and self-organization phenomena in fluid systems
- Section 5. Applied aspects of chemical thermodynamics
More than 300 people will take part in the RCCT-2017. Among them more than 50 – foreign scientists from the USA, the countries of Europe (Germany, Great Britain, France, Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, Italy, Romania, Hungary), Southeast Asia (China, Tawan, Thailand), Africa (the Republic of South Africa, Algeria), the CIS countries (Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus). Other participants are the experts from different parts of Russia (Moscow, St. Petersburg, Ivanovo, Novosibirsk, Samara, Yekaterinburg, Tver, Sevastopol, Chelyabinsk, Tomsk, Omsk, Krasnoyarsk, Perm, Kazan, Tyumen, Biysk).
Professor Jean-Pierre Grolier (France) is invited as an honorary lecturer.
Plenary and Invited lectures will be made by such outstanding scientists as:
- a living classic, author of a number of basic, popular all over the world, textbooks on chemistry "Physical Chemistry", "Inorganic Chemistry" and "Molecular Quantum Mechanics" professor Peter William Atkins (United Kingdom),
- editor-in-chief of the international journal Thermochimica Acta, advisor to the International Association for Chemical Thermodynamics professor Christoph Schick (Germany),
- member of the editorial board of the international Journal of Chemical Thermodynamics, chairman of the board of the International Association for Chemical Thermodynamics professor Martin Trusler (Great Britain),
- manager of the project Y Science Laboratories, within the framework of which a package of programs simulating virtual laboratories in chemistry, physics, and biology and other sciences has been developed professor Brian F. Woodfield (USA), and many other specialists with a worldwide reputation.
