How to become an Official Participating Organization (OPO)

Chemical Societies from Pacific Rim countries are invited to be Official Participating Organizations (OPOs) of Pacifichem 2015.  The cosponsoring societies believe that a significant reason for the success of the previous Pacifichem conferences has been the involvement of other societies in the Pacific Basin and the participation of their members.

Official Participating Organizations will have no financial responsibility for the Congress.  However, Official Participating Organizations are expected to use their normal methods of communication to inform their members about Pacifichem 2015, including the general outline of the scientific program, how to submit papers to be considered for presentation during the Congress, and how to register and request reservations for accommodations, all of which can be found on the Pacifichem 2015 website  Members of the Official Participating Organizations may submit proposals and technical papers as well as register for Pacifichem 2015 at the discounted member rate.

List of Official Participating Organizations [OPOs] for Pacifichems 1984 – 2010

If your organization would like to be an Official Participating Organization [OPO], please complete the Application Form (Microsoft Word 97 – 2003 Doc.) and return it to Nancy Todd, Pacifichem 2015 Congress Manager, at the address at the end of this document. Or please forward it to the Secretary-General, Executive Secretary, the Executive Director, or the appropriate person within your Society to reply.

Cooperation among countries is essential to the welfare of the peoples of the Pacific Basin.  Collaboration in Pacifichem 2015 is an excellent way to promote that cooperation.  We hope that you will join us as an Official Participating Organization.
