The 2015 International Chemical Congress of Pacific Basin Societies (PAC CHEM™), will take place in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, December 15-20, 2015. The conference is sponsored jointly by the American Chemical Society (ACS), the Canadian Society for Chemistry (CSC), the Chemical Society of Japan (CSJ), the New Zealand Institute of Chemistry (NZIC), the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI), the Korean Chemical Society (KCS), and the Chinese Chemical Society (CCS). The American Chemical Society is the host society for the 2015 Congress.

Pacifichem 2015 will be the seventh in the series of successful cosponsored scientific conferences of Pacific Basin Chemical Societies. Founded in 1984, these conferences have been held in Honolulu, Hawaii about every five years.

The Pacifichem 2015 Theme

The theme of Pacifichem 2015 is Chemical Networking: Building Bridges Across the Pacific, emphasizing the collaborative nature of chemistry as a multidisciplinary science and the opportunities to network with Pan-Pacific research groups at the Pacifichem meetings.

Collaborations in Chemistry

In keeping with the theme, Pacifichem 2015 welcomes proposals focusing on collaborations in chemistry. Symposia showcasing various aspects of collaboration across different geographic regions or between different sectors of chemical research (industry, academia, research institutes, government laboratories) are welcome, as are symposia focusing on partnerships between traditional industries and contract research organizations (CROs) or contract manufacturing organizations (CMO’s). Other collaborative arrangements of interest include precompetitive industrial collaborations on enabling chemical technologies, new technologies and new strategies for facilitating effective collaborations across multiple time zones, and managing intellectual property and licensing.

Industry in Chemistry

In recognizing the increasing importance of pan-Pacific collaborations in the chemical industry, Pacifichem 2015 welcomes symposia proposals related to Industry in Chemistry. Topics of potential interest include emerging challenges in the chemical industry, entrepreneurship and job creation in chemistry, translating chemical research discoveries into new commercial products, IP concerns in chemistry, optimization of chemistry workflows, use of six sigma and lean manufacturing practices in the chemical industry, disruptive chemical technologies, platform technologies in chemistry, leadership in the chemical industry, management in the chemical industry, talent acquisition training in the chemical industry, etc.

Pacifichem 2010

Pacifichem 2010 was held in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, December 15 – 20, 2010 with a record number of 12,520 attendees, 163 Exhibitors, 235 symposia, and 13,268 abstracts. A description of each symposium offered may be found in the list of the 2010 Technical Symposia. All sessions scheduled and papers presented may be browsed through the Program Book.

The SETAC North America 36th Annual Meeting is a 5-day event featuring a variety of training, networking and learning opportunities. More than 2,300 scientists, assessors, regulators and managers will gather to share and discuss emerging research, regulatory developments and the latest methodologies in environmental toxicology and chemistry. The meeting draws a diverse group of scientists from academia, business and government representing more than 40 countries.

SETAC is one of Waterborne’s highest attended conferences. This year we are presenting authors on 13 posters and 5 platform presentations that share innovative work we’re doing across a broad spectrum of areas. See a full list of our SETAC presentations here >>

Waterborne is supporting the SETAC organization by chairing three sessions and acting as co-instructor in a professional training course on Sunday.

This year we will be at booth 901 to introduce ourselves and share information about ways we’re helping clients. Stop by to say hello! We will also have hand-outs with our presentation and poster schedule. If you have questions about any of our presentations or our whereabouts at SETAC, email Casey Wisch at wischc@waterborne-env.com.

Virginia Association for Mapping and Land Information Systems (VAMLIS)

Waterborne employee, Megan Sebasky, Geospatial Scientist and Biologist, will be presenting at the 26th Annual Virginia GIS Conference in Charlottesville on October 20, 2015. Megan will be presenting on the Application of Geospatial Technologies to Ecological Risk Assessments of Pesticides and will talk about the role that pesticides play in agriculture and the ability to feed our growing population.

About the presentation:

Application of Geospatial Technologies to Ecological Risk Assessments of Pesticides
Pesticides play a critical role in agriculture and the ability to feed our growing population. These chemicals are heavily regulated in the US to ensure no adverse impacts on the environment may occur as a result of proper usage. In order to register and market these chemicals, companies need to complete ecological risk assessments that characterize risk to the environment in terms of both exposure and effects. Exposure characterization has a strong spatial component – the concentration of a pesticide that may occur in a particular environment is heavily influenced by geospatial parameters such as proximity to cropland, hydrology, soil type, and weather. This presentation includes an overview of the pesticide risk assessment process and focuses on the importance of geospatial technologies in the exposure assessment portion. Examples are provided that relate to site selection, study site characterization, and national-scale modeling.
