What is Pacifichem 2021?

The 2021 International Chemical Congress of Pacific Basin Societies will take place virtually, December 16-21, 2021. Pacifichem 2021 will be the eighth 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.

A Creative Vision for the Future

Chemistry is, and always should be, a creative enterprise, providing us with unique and unprecedented innovations to make human society happier, healthier and more sustainable. We hope that Pacifichem 2021 will create an active forum and a productive platform where thousands of papers will disclose state-of-the-art, cutting edge findings in chemistry and related multidisciplinary areas that inspire active discussion and opportunities for international collaboration, thereby promoting creativity and a clear creative vision for chemistry.


Pacifichem 2021: A Creative Vision for the Future

Chemistry is, and always should be, a creative enterprise, providing us with unique and unprecedented innovations to make human society happier, healthier and more sustainable. In addition to being a discovery science, chemistry allows us, through limitless combinations and permutations of the over 100 elements, to create new substances and materials that nature has not yet seen in the 13.5 billion-year history of our universe and to employ them in the betterment of our Earth.

We do hope that Pacifichem 2021 will create an active forum and a productive platform where thousands of papers will disclose state-of-the-art, cutting edge findings in chemistry and related multidisciplinary areas that inspire active discussion and opportunities for international collaboration, thereby promoting creativity and a clear creative vision for chemistry.


Pacifichem 2021 will be a virtual-only event

The health and safety of our members and attendees are top priority. Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases worldwide and the challenge this presents for traveling to and meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii, the Pacifichem, Inc. Board has made the decision to terminate (cancel) the in-person portion of Pacifichem 2021. We are happy to announce that Pacifichem 2021 will still take place. Pacifichem 2021 will now be a fully-virtual Congress. The Congress will take place over the original dates of December 16 – 21, 2021 and will have the scientific sessions the same dates and times as previously scheduled (see scientific program schedule). This schedule allows for people from multiple time zones to participate in portions of the Congress.

Since moving to fully-virtual we are able to reduce the registration fees from the previously-posted fees. Anyone who has paid a higher fee will be refunded automatically by Pacifichem staff beginning October 8. No action is needed by registrants to adjust their prior registration.
